Cumulative Trauma Disorders: A Manual for Musculoskeletal Diseases of the Upper Limbs, p. 12, Taylor & Francis. 11 Structure of a synovial sheath. An area of the sheath has been cutaway to expose its double-walled structure. Synovial fluid lines the inside of the sheath’s inner and outer walls and reduces friction as the tendon moves within its tunnel. Note: normally the tendon fits snugly in its tunnel, but is shown having a loose fit in this figure for illustration purposes.

The inner wall of the sheath is attached to the tendon, and the outer wall is attached to a fibrous sheath moored to a bone or ligament. The inside surfaces of the sheath’s inner and outer walls are lined with synovial fluid, which acts as a lubricant as the tendon traverses inside the tunnel formed by the fibrous sheath. Nervous System The primary purposes of the peripheral nervous system (PNS), which serves voluntary skeletal muscles of the extremities, head, neck, and torso, are first, to receive sensory information from outlying parts of the body and relay this information to the central nervous system (CNS), which consists of the brain and spinal cord.
