Herein, what is the classification of this type of joint?
A joint is defined as a connection between two bones in the skeletal system. Joints can be classified by the type of the tissue present (fibrous, cartilaginous or synovial), or by the degree of movement permitted (synarthrosis, amphiarthrosis or diarthrosis).
Similarly, what are the three structural classification of joints? Joints can be classified based on structure and function. Structural classification of joints categorizes them based on the type of tissue involved in formation. There are three structural classifications of joints: fibrous, cartilaginous, and synovial.
Then, what is the structural classification of intervertebral joint?
Each disc allows for limited movement between the vertebrae and thus functionally forms an amphiarthrosis type of joint. Intervertebral discs are made of fibrocartilage and thereby structurally form a symphysis type of cartilaginous joint.
