Synovial Joints And Special Movements Quiz - Quiz

Are you ready to take this "Synovial joints and special movements quiz? " If yes, play the quiz, then! In a Synovial joint, the ends of bones are encased in smooth cartilage. Together, they are protected by a joint capsule lined with a synovial membrane that also produces synovial fluid. The capsule, as well as fluid, protects the cartilage, muscles, and connective tissues. Let's see how much you know about synovial joints and special movements.
