What kind of joint is a scapulothoracic joint?
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 articulation. 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.

Places in the body where bones come together. A joint is where your bones are connected. The joint is there to help you be able to move.
well, There are many joints in our body.; Ball and Socket joint, hinge joint, pivot joint, and saddle point and immoveable joint.
The part of the body that allows animals and humans to bend andmove. it is bones in your body that help you or anyone or thing elsemove. . REAL ANSWER: . A joint is the l…ocation at which two or morebones make contact. They are constructed to allow movement andprovide mechanical support, and are classified structurally andfunctionally. The word is also a slang term for a marijuana cigarette.
Muscles which produce scapular adduction (retraction) Rhomboid Major / Rhomboid Minor / Trapezius / Latissimus Dorsi
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 m…eans it provides movement in many planes of movement (multiaxial usually refers to three, which can then also be stated as triaxial).
It is a pivotal hinge joint.
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
Our Knee Join is a hinge joint.
. The four different types of joints that allow movement are the ball and socket, hinge pivot, and glide joints. Attached to the joints are ligaments, tendons, and cartilage t…o assist in the movement of your body.
