What kind of joints are there?
well, There are many joints in our body.; Ball and Socket joint, hinge joint, pivot joint, and saddle point and immoveable joint.

The knee joint is a type of hinge joint. It consists of three compartments that allow the knee to bend and function.
Ball-and-socket joint: Consists of a bone with a globular or slightly egg-shaped head that articulates with the cup-shaped cavity of another bone. Such a joint allows a… wider range of motion than does any other kind, permitting movements in all planes, as well as rotational movement around a central axis. The hip and shoulder contain joints of this type. Condyloid joint: The ovoid condyle of one bone fits into the elliptical cavity of another bone, as in the joints between the metacarpals (bones of the palm) and phalanges (bones of the fingers and toes). This type of joint permits a variety of movements in different planes; rotational movement, however, is not possible. Gliding joints: The articulating surfaces are nearly flat or slightly curved. These joints allow sliding or back-and-forth motion and twisting movements. Most of the joints within the wrist and ankle, as well as those between the articular processes of adjacent vertebrae, belong to this group. The sacroiliac joints and the joints formed by ribs 2 though 7 connecting with the sternum are also gliding joints. Hinge joint: The convex surface of one bone fits into the concave surface of another, as in the elbow and the joints of the phalanges. Such a joint resembles the hinge of a door in that it permits movement in one plane only. Pivot Joint: The cylindrical surface of one bone rotates within a ring formed of bone and fibrous tissue of a ligament. Movement at such a joint is limited to rotation around a central axis. The joint between the proximal ends of the radius and the ulna, where the head of the radius rotates in a ring formed by the radial notch of the ulna and a ligament (annular ligament), is of this type. Similarly, a pivot joint functions in the neck as the heard turns from side to side. In this case, the ring formed by a ligament (transverse ligament) and the anterior arch of the atlas rotates around the dens of the axis. Saddle joint: Forms between bones whose articulating surfaces have both concave and convex regions. The surface of one bone fits the complementary surface of the other. This physical relationship permits a variety of movements, mainly in two planes, as in the case of the joint between the carpal (trapezium) and the metacarpal of the thumb.
pivot joint.........that's freely movable joint
The joint in the pelvis is called the ball and socket.
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.
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).
There are three main types, synarthrotic, amphiarthrotic, and diarthrotic also known as synovial or freely moving joints. Of these there are six types (2 types of monoaxial, 2… types of biaxial, and 2 types of multiaxial). These include the ball and socket, saddle, hinge, pivot, glide, and ellipsoidal. All the joint types in the body fall into these categories.
It is a plane (gliding) joint Yes tarsal is a joint found in the pes or feet that we call. Gliding Gliding
A pivot joint is found at the elbow. The forearm is between the elbow and the wrist and so has two main joints. One at the elbow and one at the wrist. The other at the wrist i…s a gliding joint.
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
The backbone is a gliding joint. :) :( :| :o ;)
Answer It is a combination of two types of joints: a ginglymus (hinge joint) and an arthrodial (gliding) joint.
