  1. what are ligaments made of?
    dense connective tissue that attaches bone to bone
  2. A single movement in which nearly flat bone surfaces move back and forth from side to side with respect to one another
    gliding
  3. Decrease in angle between articulating bones, usually in sagittal plane
    flexion
  4. movement of trunk in frontal plane; bending  the trunk (vertebral column) to the side
    Lateral flexion
  5. Increases in angle between articulating bones, usually in sagittal plane
    extension
  6. extension beyond anatomical position
    hyperextension
  7. Movement of bone away from midline (usually in frontal plane)
    abduction
  8. movement of body part toward midline (usually in frontal plane)
    adduction
  9. Circular movements (combines flexion, abduction, extension, and adduction)
    Circumduction
  10. Movement of part around its long axis
    rotation
  11. inward rotation
    medial (internal) rotation
  12. outward rotation
    lateral (external) rotation
  13. rotation of forearm and palm of hand anteriorly or upward
    supination
  14. rotation of forearm and palm of hand posteriorly or downward
    pronation
  15. movement of body part upward; superior movement of body part
    elevation
  16. movement of body part downward; inferior movement of body part
    depression
  17. movement of ankle joint so dorsum (superior) of foot become closer to anterior surface of leg (as standing on heels); bending foot in direction of dorsum
    dorsiflexion
  18. Movement of ankle joint so the plantar surface of foot becomes closer to the posterior surface of leg (as standing on toes); bending foot in direction of planter surface (sole)
    plantar flexion
  19. medial movement of sole of foot at ankle joint
    inversion
  20. lateral movement of sole of foot at ankle joint
    eversion
  21. anterior movement in the transverse plane
    protraction
  22. posterior movement in the transverse plane
    retraction
  23. special movements of mandible when grinding food; movement of mandible laterally/medially
    excursion; lateral and medial excursion
  24. movement of the thumb to touch another finger of the same hand
    opposition
  25. return of the thumb to anatomical position
    reposition
