Places where two (or more) bones  are joined together are known as Joints.

  • Since the bones are hard, rigid structures, they cannot bend . Therefore, in order to bring about body movements, joints are present.
  • In the freely movable joints (like elbow, knee, shoulder and hip joints), the ends of bones forming the joint are held in place by strong connective tissue called ‘ligaments’.

Example - Elbow, Neck, Shoulder, Knee, Hip
