    00:01 So to conclude our lecture on the joints, recall that the joints are connections between two bones, cartilage and bone, or teeth and bone.

    00:12 The structural classification of our joints include fibrous joints, cartilaginous joints, and synovial joints.

    00:21 Functionally, we classify joints by amphiarthroses, synarthroses, and diarthroses.

    00:31 The synovial joints are diarthroses that can be divided into different types of joints.

    00:38 We have hinge joints, pivot joints, plain joints, condyloid joints, saddle joints, and ball-in-socket joints.

    00:48 There are different types of synovial joint movements including gliding, angular movement, rotation, and some special movements.

    00:59 Finally, homeostatic imbalances of the joints can include arthritis, sprains and strains, and some microbial diseases such as Lyme disease.

    01:12 This concludes our lecture on the joints.

    01:16 Thank you for listening.
