A connection between two bones Joint

The type of joint that has a thin layer of fibrous periosteum between the bones: fibrous joint
What are the 3 types of fibrous joints? Synarthroses, Syndesmoses, and Gomphoses
The fibrous joint that is commonly called a 'suture joint' and is essentially immovable. Its purpose to provide shape and strength: synarthrosis ex) sutures of the skull
The type of fibrous joint, otherwise known as a ligamentous joint, that has a great deal of fibrous tissue holding the joint together. It provides very little to no motion. syndesmosis ex) distal radioulnar joint, distal tibiofibular joint

The type of motion allowed by a diarthrodial joint depends on: the shape of the bones

Diarthrodial (synovial) joints are classified by ________ ___ ________. degrees of freedom
Degrees of freedom of diarthrodial joints indicate the number of ________ the joint can move in. planes
A nonaxial joint has __ degree(s) of freedom. 0
In this diarthrodial joint, the motion is ACCESSORY; it only occurs SECONDARILY to other joint motion: nonaxial/ plane joint ex) motion of the carpals cannot occur on their own - the movement of another joint produces that motion)

What are the 2 types of biaxial joints? condyloid joint (also called oviod or ellipsoidal) and saddle joint (also called sellar)
_________ joint motion occurs on 2 different planes. Biaxial
This specific type of synovial joint provides movement on two planes, by a concave surface sliding over a convex surface: biaxial condyloid joint
This specific synovial joint provides movement on two planes, with each articular surface being convex in one plane and concave in the other: biaxial saddle (Sellar) joint
Movement at the wrist is provided by a _________ _________ ________. biaxial condyloid joint
Metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints are which type of biaxial joint? condyloid
The carpometacarpal joint (MCP) is which type of biaxial joint? saddle (sellar) - In addition to flexion/extension and abduction/adduction, this joint also has an ACCESORY motion of rotation, but still fits in to the biaxial category because the rotation is not an ACTIVE movement)
This type of synovial joint has 3 degrees of freedom: triaxial joint (multiaxial)
This type of synovial joint allows more motion than any other type: triaxial
_________ joints are ACTIVELY capable of adduction/abduction, flexion/extension, and rotation. triaxial
triaxial joints are also referred to as _______ _____ ________ joints. ball-and-socket
The hip and shoulder are this type of synovial joint: triaxial (ball-and-socket)
In this type of synovial joint, a convex surface fits into a concave socket. Motion is able to occur in the saggital plane, frontal plane, and transverse plane. triaxial (ball-and-socket)
_______ ___ ________ are fixed lines of reference along which the body is divided. Planes of action
This plane divides the body into right and left: saggital plane
Flexion and extension occur in this plane: saggital plane
This plane divides the body into anterior and posterior: frontal plane
abduction and adduction occur in this plane: frontal plane
This plane divides the body into inferior/superior: transverse plane
Internal and external rotation occur in this plane: transverse plane
There are 3 palnes of action, each at ________ angles and perpendicular to the other 2 planes. right
