Ball-and-Socket. by nick bishop
A ball and socket joint. The easiest way to tell is it moves 360 degrees. If a bone moves 90 Degrees it is a hinge 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 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.
Shoulder and Hip Joints are both ball and socket joints.. :) :D x The Shoulder joint is also called the glenohumeral joint ... and is the most freely movable joint in the hu…man body.
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).
ball and socket joint
The muscles of the shoulder joint attach at the humerus, whereas the shoulder girdle joint muscles attach at the scapula.
