Random information on the term “Joint”:
In anatomy, fibrous joints are joints connected by fibrous tissue, consisting mainly of collagen. These are fixed joints where bones are united by a layer of white fibrous tissue of varying thickness. In the skull the joints between the bones are called sutures. Such immovable joints are also referred to as synarthroses.
Most fibrous joints are also called “fixed” or “immovable”. These joints have no joint cavity and are connected via fibrous connective tissue.
The skull bones are connected by fibrous joints called sutures. In fetal skulls the sutures are wide to allow slight movement during birth. They later become rigid (synarthrodial).
Some of the long bones in the body such as the radius and ulna in the forearm are joined by a syndesmosis (along the interosseous membrane). Syndemoses are slightly moveable (amphiarthrodial). The distal tibiofibular joint is another example.
A gomphosis is a joint between the root of a tooth and the socket in the maxilla or mandible (jawbones).
