Card Set Information
a movement of relatively flat bone surfaces back and forth and side to side over one another; little change in the angle between bones.
increase or decrease in the angle between articulating bones, usually in the sagittal plane.
decrease in the angle between articulating bones ex noding yes
increase in the angle between articulating bones ex returning head to anatomical position after noding
extension beyond the anatomical (head backwards)
movement of a bone away from the midline, usually in the frontal plane, arm goes straight out to the side
movement of a bone toward the midline, usually in the frontal plane , arm returns to side
flexion, abduction, extension, adduction in succession, in which the distal end of a body part moves in a circle
movement of a bone around its longitudinal axis; in the limbs, it may be medial (toward the midline) or lateral (away from the midline) ex shacking head no
occurs at specific joints
superior movement of a body part (shoulders move up)
inferior movement of a body part (shoulders move down)
anterior movement of a body part in the transverse plane (jaw goes forward)
posterior movement of a body part in the transverse, jaw moves back into place
medial movement of the sole of the foot, raise the inner part of your foot up
lateral movement of the sole of the foot, move baby toe and outside of foot up.
bending the foot in the direction of the dorsum, lift toes up and stand on your heel.
special: plantar flexion
bending the foot in the direction of the planter surface, stand on your toes
movement of the forearm that turns the palm anteriorly, move palm to anatomical position
movement of the forearm that turns the palm posteriorly, turn palm away from the anatomical position
movement of the thumb across the palm to touch the fingertips on the same hand
