Ligamentous articulation is a term that defines the connection between two bones facilitated by ligaments, robust fibrous connective tissues. The ligaments function as stabilizers, providing a restricted range of motion while preventing excessive movement that may result in injury. This form of joint structure is commonly found in areas such as the spine, where stability and flexibility are both required.

Composed primarily of dense regular connective tissue, ligaments possess unique properties including high tensile strength and elasticity. These properties enable them to withstand the stress exerted during bodily movements. Unlike other types of joints, ligamentous articulations rely on the integrity and strength of these tissues for function rather than synovial fluid or cartilage.

Apart from their role in mobility and stability, ligamentous articulations also play a significant role in proprioception – the body’s ability to perceive its position in space. Damage to these structures can greatly impact balance and coordination, demonstrating their importance beyond mere structural support.
