skeletal system

I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need support to help me learn.



Book: Rizzo, donald C. “Fundamentals of anatomy & physiology 4th ed.

Chapter 7 and 8


In this discussion, you will identify and describe the joints associated with different activities or forms of exercise.


    • Identify the functions of the skeletal system.
    • Identify the bones of the axial and appendicular skeleton.
    • Define the three types of joints.
    • Identify examples of the two types of synarthrotic joints.
    • List examples of the two types of amphiarthrodial joints.
    • List examples of the six types of diarthroses or synovial joints.
    • Define the capsular nature of a synovial joint.
    • Define the possible movements at synovial joints.


Step 1: Respond to the following:

There are three types of joints: synarthrotic, amphiarthrodial, and synovial. Identify and describe different exercises or activities that involve using each of these joints. Try to use examples that include more than one type of joint.

  • Which bones and joints are primarily involved in each activity? Describe the type of joint(s) and their action(s).
  • What types of joint movements are performed in each activity?
  • Do you have any difficulty in performing the exercise or activity? How would you describe the problem, or lack thereof, in terms of joint health?
