Is this a male or female pelvis?

1234Do Now:How do a male and female pelvis compare?

List 3 joints and describe their movements.Articulations: site where 2+ bones meet (joint) providing mobility and stability

Classification of Articulations Structure (material binding bones)Fibrous (binding connective tissue)Cartilaginous (binding connective tissue)Synovial (joint capsule)

Function (amount of movement)Synarthrosis (Immovable) -axialAmphiarthrosis (slightly movable)-axialDiarthrosis (freely movable)-appendicular

Synathrosis (no movement)Sutures (seams) - fibrousBones of the skullGomphosisPeridontal ligament bonds tooth w/in alveolar margin

CartilaginousSynchondrosis hyaline cartilage unites bonesEx. Connection between 1st rib and manubrium of sternum, epiphyseal plates

Amphiarthroses (Slightly Movable)SyndesmosisFibrous joint connected by ligamentEx. Distal articulation between tibia and fibula, interosseous membrane connecting radius and ulna

SymphysisBones joined by disk of fibrocartilageEx. Vertebrae, between pubic bonesDiarthrosis (Synovial Movement)Bound by joint capsule and contains synovial fluid

Extension - increases angle between articulating elements

Adduction moving towards midline

Abduction moving away from midline

Circumduction loop motion

Rotational MovementsRotational

Special MovementsInversion- turns sole of foot inward (opp-eversion)

Dorsiflexion- ankle flexion (plantar flexion pointed toe)

Opposition grasping (thumb/fingers toward hand)

Protraction - move anterior across horizontal plane (opp retraction)

Elevation move superior (opp depression)

The Knee: Largest and most complex joint

Which of the following does NOT influence the stability of the joint?
