Joints A joint is where two bones meet, allowing the skeleton to move. There are approximately 230 joints in the human body and these consist of three main types of joint. These are called:
  • Fixed joint - Your skull is a fixed joint
  • Slightly movable joint - This allows movement in a limited way, for example your spine
  • Synovial joint - Containing synovial fluid, it allows joints to move freely with little friction. Examples include Pivot joints (your kneck), Hinge joints (elbows and knees), Ball and Socket joints (your hips), the Saddle joint (only found in the thumbs), Gliding joints (such as the ankles and wrists) and the Ellipsoidal joint (in your index finger and a few other places)

There are lots of tissues surrounding our joints which allow their overall function:

  • Cartilage This covers the ends of your bones to stop them from rubbing together
  • Tendons These attach the muscles to the bones
  • Ligaments These are thick, white bands of tissue and hold bones together at the joint
  • Muscles Muscles move our joints
