Joints hold our skeleton together and aid in movement. Joints are defined as the areas at which two or more bones meet and they are complex systems that are made up of a variety of different parts.
There are many types of joints including: Ball and Socket Joints, Hinge Joints, Pivot Joints and Ellipsoidal Joints. These joint types are known as mobile joints, or joints that aid in movement. There are also joints that do not move, such as suture joints also known as synarthroses joints (definition; immovable articulation) which are found within the skull.
The images on these charts were original hand drawn by a highly skilled anatomical illustrator.
