Symphysis joints

Symphysis , in these joints, the union between the bones is given by a sheet of fibrocartilaginous tissue, which allows it slight mobility at times, this is separated by sheets of hyaline tissue. Unlike synchondrosis , the symphyses are permanent. Examples are the pubic symphysis (union of both hip bones in the ventral part) and the intervertebral joints.

These joints are permanent. In cases where several symphyses work together they provide shock force absorption, flexibility and force.

The symphyses are located in the midline of the body.


They are made up of complementary structures and have wide movements in different directions. In general, diarthrosis joins the long bones together ( humerus with radius , femur with tibia ) and connects the upper and lower extremities with the axial skeleton.
