What kind of joint is a multiaxial joint?
A multiaxial joint is a type of synovial joint. The x-axial refers to how many planes of the movement the specific joint provides, so in the case of a multiaxial joint, that means it provides movement in many planes of movement (multiaxial usually refers to three, which can then also be stated as triaxial).

Multiaxial movement is movement that takes place in more than one axis of rotation. Two joints that would exhibit this type of movement are the shoulder joint and the hip …joint.
Yes, a Multiaxial joint is a "ball and socket"
well, There are many joints in our body.; Ball and Socket joint, hinge joint, pivot joint, and saddle point and immoveable joint.
The three planes are coronal, sagittal, and transverse (you probably knew this already) so a multiaxial joint can move in all three. So to answer the question, it would be thr…ee.
The scapulothoracic joint is not a true joint in the sense in that it has no capsule or ligamentous attachments. It is more precisely identified as the scapulothoracic a…rticulation. It is formed between the anterior scapula and the posterior thoracic rib cage(ribs 2-7). The scapula's attachment to the axial skeleton in a healthy shoulder is purely musculotendinous in nature, formed by the trapezius and serratus muscles. Its gliding movement patterns consist of elevation/depression, retraction/protraction, and superior/inferior rotation. However, fibrous adhesions can sometimes occur following a shoulder injury, particularly if the joint has been immobilized for a long period of time. This severely impairs the movement of the shoulder, particularly with abduction past 90 degrees.
Joints make us move and walk.
Your spine is a gliding joint. It helps you to twist and dance and bend over. EXPERIMENT: try dancing or doing a movement that will prove to you that your spine is a gliding… joint!!
Ball and socket joint, much like the shoulder
It is a Hinge....=] a phalanges nothing will happen its only ball and socket or hinge or pivot or just bakwaas. Hinge
Shoulder and hip joints
Our Knee Join is a hinge joint.
two or more
The hip and shoulder.
