Front Back
The movement of a part of the body away from the median line of the body
Abduction
The movement of a part of the body toward the median line of the body
Adduction
Abnormal immobility and consolidation of a joint
Ankylosis
(When in standard anatomic position) the movement or position of the wrist away from the median line toward the axis of the radius
Radial Deviation
(When in standard anatomic position) the movement or position of the wrist away from the median line toward the axis of the ulna
Ulnar Deviation
Farthest away from the center or from the trunk. Opposite of proximal.
Distal
A turning outward
Eversion
The movement which brings the members of a limb into or toward a straight condition. The opposite of flexion.
Extension
Denoting a position or movement toward the back
Dorsiflexion
A bending of the wrist in the direction of the back of the hand decreasing the angle between the back of the hand and the forearm
Wrist Dorsiflexion
A bending of the ankle bringing the foot upward
Foot Dorsflexion
A movement or position away from the middle and toward the side of the body in the same plane
Lateral Flexion
Denoting a position or movement toward the palm. A bending of te wrist n th direction of the palm decreasing the angle between the palm and the forearm
Palmar Flexion
Movement or position in the direction of the sole o the foot. A bending of the ankle moving the foot downward.
Plantar Flexion
An instrument to measure the range of motion of joints in degrees
Goniometer
A turning inward
Inversion
Any of the bones of the fingers or toes
Phalanx (phalanges)
The bone of the fingers or toes most remote from the metacarpals or metatarsus
Distal Phalanx
The bone of the fingers or toes inermediate between distal and proximal phalanges
Middle Phalanx
The bone of the fingers or toes articulating with a metacarpal or metatarsal bone
Proximal Phalanx
The act of rotating the wrist to a position with the palm down
Pronation
Nearest--closest to any point of reference. In the musculoskeletal system means nearest the point of attachment. Opposite of distal.
Proximal
The movement of a body around its axis.
Rotation
Movement of a body around its axis with the directon of movement being toward the medial line of the body
Internal Rotatation
Movement of a body around its axis with the directon of movement being toward away from the medial line of the body
External Rotation
The act of rotating the wrist to a position with the palm up
Supination
Abduction
The movement of a part of the body away from the median line of the body
