Synovial fluid

Published on Locomotor system.

Joint bones are kept in place by ligaments and tendons that only allow normal movement. Muscles also help determine joint stability. The joint is enclosed in a fibrous capsule filled with a thin membrane that constantly produces a small amount of fluid; this fluid, called synovial fluid, acts as a nutrient and as a lubricant to the cartilage.

Therefore, synovial fluid is the lubricant of joints. When someone feels major undervaluation in the identity of his gesture, that is, when he feels his gesture is clumsy and this fact makes him feel bad, joints get a cold and the synovial fluid flows out. Just like in the nose. A torsion becomes more severe when this fluid flows out.
