Articulation: (anatomy) the point of connection between two bones or elements of a skeleton (especially if the articulation allows motion)
Source: WordNet 2.1
Articulation: The term articulation is another word for a joint. An articulation is where two or more bones meet. Articulations are a part of the skeletal system and play a big role in giving the body flexibility and the ability to move. Many articulations are held together by ligaments, which also help to provide stability for the body. Cartilage and fibrous tissue separate the ends of bone tissues from touching directly and provide lubrication for movement in some types of articulations. There are three types of articulations: movable joints, fixed joints and slightly movable joints. More movable joints have less stability and strength than less movable joints.
Conditions that can afflict articulations include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, dislocations, trauma, infection, dysplagia and inflammation.
