Definition of Joint

Joint: A joint is the area where two bones are attached for the purpose of motion of body parts. A joint is usually formed of fibrous connective tissue and cartilage. An articulation or an arthrosis is the same as a joint. These days you may be saying that your definition of a joint is..."Where I hurt." If that is your joint experience these days then you have just come upon a better option than the ugly drugly prescriptions. Click the link you just passed up to find out more.

Joints are grouped according to their motion: a ball and socket joint; a hinge joint; a condyloid joint (a joint that permits all forms of angular movement except axial rotation); a pivot joint; gliding joint; and a saddle joint.

Joints can move in four and only four ways:

Gliding -- one bony surface glides on another without angular or rotatory movement;
Angular -- occurs only between long bones, increasing or decreasing the angle between the bones;
Circumduction -- occurs in joints composed of the head of a bone and an articular cavity, the long bone describing a series of circles, the whole forming a cone; and
Rotation -- a bone moves about a central axis without moving from this axis.
The word "joint" comes from the Latin "junctio" meaning a joining (as in a junction).
