Movable Joints: Movable joints are the joints in the body that create the ability for bones to move freely and for the body to complete a wide variety of movements, such as throwing, nodding the head, running, writing and chewing. Movable joints are a part of the skeletal system and are held together by ligaments, which stabilize the joints. Muscles that pass across movable joints also help to stabilize them. Hyaline (articular) cartilage coats and separates the ends of bones that form moveable joints. Movable joints also contain a joint capsule, synovial cavity, and synovial fluid.
There are six types of movable joints: saddle joint, pivot joint, ball and socket joint, condyloid joint, plane joint and hinge joint. Conditions that can afflict movable joints include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, dislocations, trauma, infection, dysplagia and inflammation.
