Fibrous joints: bones are united by tissues (eventually may calcify) Sutures are a good example
Cartilaginous joints: bone ends are connected by cartilage
Synovial joints: articulating bone ends are separated by a joint cavity
Homeostatic Imbalances
Osteoporosis: bone becomes porous and brittle
Osteoarthritis: articular cartilage wears away exposing a roughened bone surface
