What Is the Function of the Joint Capsule?

Answer

The joint capsule plays a very important role in the functioning of synovial joints. It acts as a seal to the joint space, provides strength by controlling movements and provides active strength through its dendrites. The joint capsule is a dense fibrous connective tissue that is attached to the bones through specialised attachment zones and forming a sleeve around the joint.
