Oil of the Joints

Description

oil of the joints

Synovial fluid is a thick, stringy fluid found in the cavities of synovial joints With its egg-like consistency, synovial fluid reduces friction between the cartilage and other tissues in joints to lubricate and cushion them during movement.

Function

Lubricates the joint facilitating easy movement. The inner membrane of synovial joints is called the synovial membrane and secretes synovial fluid into the joint cavity. This fluid seeps into the micro cavities filling all the empty spaces. During movement, the synovial fluid held in the cartilage is squeezed out mechanically to maintain a layer of fluid on the cartilage surface.
