Presentation Transcript
slide2
Flexion- Bending part of a joint as that the angle between them decreases
  • Extension- Straightening parts ofa joint so that the angle between them increases
slide4
Dorsiflexion- Bending the foot upward
  • Plantar Flexion- Bending the foot downward
slide6
Hyperextension- excess extension of the parts at a joint, beyond the anatomical position.
    • Ex: Bending the head back beyond the upright position.
slide7
Abduction- Moving a part AWAY from the midline.
  • Adduction- moving a part toward the midline.
slide9
Rotation- moving a part around an axis.

Ex: twisting the head from side to side

Circumduction- moving a part so that its end follows a circular path

Ex: Moving the finger in a circular motion without moving the hand.

slide11
Pronation- turning the hand so that the palm is downward or facing posteriorly.
  • Supination- Turning the hand so that the palm is upward or facing anteriorly.
slide13
Eversion- Turning the foot so that the sole faces laterally.
  • Inversion- Turning the foot so that the sole faces medially.
slide15
Retraction- Moving a part backward
  • Protraction- Moving a part forward.
slide17
Elevation- raising a part
    • Ex: shrugging the shoulders
  • Depression- Lowering a part
    • Ex: Drooping the shoulders
