Descripción

Enarthrosis (ball-and-socket joints).—Enarthrosis is a joint in which the distal bone is capable of motion around an indefinite number of axes, which have one common center. It is formed by the reception of a globular head into a cup-like cavity, hence the name "ball-and-socket." Examples of this form of articulation are found in the hip and shoulder.
