Tendons
Very strong, non-elastic cords that join muscle to bone.
1 of 7
Bursae
A sac filled with liquid, floating inside the joing, to reduce friction between tendon and bone.
2 of 7
Cartilage
A tough but flexible tissue that acts as a buffer between the bones, preventing bones rubbing together and casuing friction.
3 of 7
Synovial fluid
A clear and slippery liqud that lubricates the joint and stops the bones rubbing together.
4 of 7
Ligaments
Bands of elastic fibre that attach bone to bone, keeping the joints stable by restricting movement.
5 of 7
Synovial membrane
The lining inside the joint capsule that secretes (releases) synovial fluid.
6 of 7
Joint capsule
Tissue that stops synovial fluid from escaping and encloses, supports and holds the bones together.
