The bigger joints


Vertebral column. The vertebrae are connected with each-other by 3 kind of connections of bones: syndesmoses, synchondroses and synovial joints. 1. Syndesmoses (ligaments): - lig. longitudinale anterius - runs by anterior surface of the corpus vertebrae from atlas to os sacrum - lig. longitudinale posterius - runs by posterior surface of the corpus vertebraes - lig. supraspinale - runs by the tips of the proc. spinosuses from the 7. cervical vertebra to os sacrum - lig. nuchae - widened part of the lig. supraspinale, extends from the 7. cervical vertebra up to os occipitale - ligg. interspinalia - between proc. spinosuses - ligg. intertransversaria - between proc. transversuses - ligg. flava - between arcus vertebraes

2. Sybchondroses: Discus intervertebralis - between the corpus vertebraes (in some books it is named symphysis intervertebralis!) 2 parts: - nucleus pulposus - central part from soft cartilage - anulus fibrosus - outer part from fibrous cartilage Functions of discus intervertebralis: 1. connection of bones 2. making possible movements between the bones 3. making possible growth of bones 4. to work as a shock- absorbers

3. Artt. intervertebrales ( also: artt. zygapophysiales). Articulating surfaces: facies articularis superiores of the lower vertebra + facies articularis inferiores of the upper vertebra Type:.plana (left and right combined!) Axes and movements: limited movements around all axes: - cervical part - ante- and retroflexio, lateroflexio, rotatio - thoracal part - lateroflexio and limited rotatio - lumbar part - ante- and retroflexio, limited lateroflexio
