                    1. Synovial Joints
                      1. Fibrous (immoveable) Joints
                        1. Cartilaginous (slightly moveable) Joints
                        2. Structure of a Synovial Joint

                            1. A band of strong fibrous tissue
                              1. Connects bone to bone
                              2. Synovial Fluid
                                1. A slippery fluid - the consistency of egg-whites - that is contained within the joint cavity
                                  1. To reduce friction between the articular cartilage in the joint
                                  2. Articular Cartilage
                                    1. Glassy-smooth cartilage that is spongy and covers the ends of the bones in the joint
                                      1. To absorb shock and prevent friction between the ends of the bones in the joint
                                      2. Joint Capsule
                                        1. A tough fibrous tissue that has two layers, with the fibrous capsule lying outside the synovial membrane
                                          1. The fibrous capsule helps to strengthen the joint, while the synovial membrane lines the joint and secretes synovial fluid
                                          2. Tendon
                                            1. A band of strong fibrous tissue
