Joint where 2 structures are joined & connected
Articulation type of joint that allows movement
Synarthrotic does not allow/allows very little movement; 2 bones held very tightly together with fibrous connective tissue; example: sutures
Amphiarthrotic allows minimal movement; example: vertebra to disc, rib to sternum, right & left hip bones at pubis
Diarthrotic cartilage cap that acts as a cushion; "synovial joints"; find synovial fluid as lubricant; example: fingers
Joint Capsule container for synovial fluid, not completely sealed
Joint Cavity space filled with synovial fluid, created by the joint capsule
