Posture Review- Ch 2
Joints
Points of contact of 2 or more bones
Functions: bind bones together and for mobility
Classification
Joints can be classified based on their potential movements or based on their
mechanical analogy
1. Synarthroses: little or no movement; reinforced by a combination of fibrous (cranial
sutures) tissues and cartilage (pubic symphysis)
2. Diarthroses (synovial): moderate to extensive movement; often joined by a cavity filled
with synovial fluid, allowing for a wide range of movement
Characteristics of a synovial joint: synovial fluid, synovial membrane (around fluid),
ligaments, joint cartilage, blood vessels and sensory nerves
Characteristics that are sometimes present in a synovial joint: meniscus/ joint disks,
labrum (bourrelet, found in the elbows and hips to increase amount of movement),

force put onto the bones), synovial plica
Other methods of classification are by their mechanical analogy
Troclear (humerus and ulna)
Pivot (humerus, ulna and radius)
Ellipsoid (radiocarpal joint)
Ball-and-socket (femur in pelvis)
Plane (4th and 5th metacarpals, 2 flat surfaces on each other)
Saddle (trapezium and first metacarpal)
Condyloid (tibiofemural joint)
Rotational axis
In a joint, the rotational axis is not fixed
When we analyse movements, always assume the rotational axis is in the same place
Cartilage
Non-vascularized tissue found in different parts of the body, mostly in joints
3 types: hyaline, fibrous and elastic
Joint injuries
Arthritis: hudreds of iflaatory illesses that touh joits, does’t always ause
pain
Arthrosis: Most common chronic arthritis, mostly related to age and occurs in a
degenerative manner, can affect both joints but normally is worse on one side than the
other
Rheumatoid arthritis: auto-immune disease of the conjunctive tissues with a strong
inflammatory component, causes destruction of joints, normally occurs symmetrically
Ligaments
Keep body balanced and play a mechanical role in maintenance
Dense conjunctive tissues that connect bones and help to stabilize joints
Play a role in proprioception (hard to find proprioception during rehab)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
