  1. rotation (right or left)
    right or left rotation in the transverse plane, usually used to describe neck and trunk movement.
  2. elevation
    movement of the scapula superiorly in the frontal plane.
  3. depression
    movement of the scapula inferiorly in the frontal plane.
  4. retraction
    movement of the scapula toward the spine in the transverse plane.
  5. protraction
    movement of the scapula away from the spine in the transverse plane.
  6. upward rotation
    superior and lateral movement of the inferior angle of the scapula in the frontal plane.
  7. downward rotation
    inferior and medial movement of the inferior angle of the scapula in the frontal plane.
  8. circumduction
    a compound circular movement involving flexion, extension, abduction, adduction circumscribing a cone shape.
  9. radial deviation
    abduction of the wrist in the frontal plane
  10. ulnar deviation
    adduction of the wrist in the frontal plane.
  11. flexion
    movement resulting in a decrease of the joint angle, usually moving anteriorly in the sagittal plane.
  12. extention
    movement resulting in the increase of the joint angle, usually moving posteriorly in the sagittal plane.
  13. abduction
    movement away from the midline of the body, usually in the frontal plane.
  14. adduction
    movement toward the midline of the body, usually in the frontal plane.
  15. horizontal adduction
    movement toward the midline of the body in the transverse plane, usually used to describe horizontal humerus movement when the shoulder is flexed at 90 degrees.
  16. horizontal abduction
    movement away from the midline of the body in the transverse plane, usually used to describe horizontal humerus movement when the shoulder is flexed at 90 degrees.
  17. internal (medial) rotation
    rotation in transverse plane toward midline of body.
  18. external (lateral) rotation
    rotation in the transverse plane away from midline of body.
  19. lateral flexion (left or right)
    movement away from the midline of the body in the frontal plane, usually used to describe neck and trunk movement.
  20. opposition
    diagonal movement of thumb across the palmar surface to make contact with the fifth digit.
  21. eversion
    abducting the ankle.
  22. inversion
    adducting the ankle
  23. dorsiflexion
    flexing the ankle so that the foot moves anteriorly in the sagittal plane.
  24. plantarflexion
    extending the ankle so that the foot moves posteriorly in the sagittal plane.
  25. pronation (foot/ankle)
    combined movements of abduction and eversion resulting in the lowering of the medial margin of  the foot.
  26. supination (foot/ankle)
    combined movements of adduction and invesion resulting in raising of the medial margin of the foot.
