Ball and socket joint
In this joint, the movements of bones are allowed only in one direction i.e. forwards and backwards
Hinge joints
In this joint, the rounded end of one bone fits into cavity (hollow space) of the other bone directions.
Pivot join
In this joint, the bones are held so tightly together that they cannot move at all
Fixed join
In this joint, it allows rotation only. In this joint cylindrical bone rotates in a ring
