Flashcards in basic movements Deck (21):
1

a change in relationship between segments

movement

2

displacement of body or segment: translation or rotation

motion

3

movement in sagittal plane, from anatomical position

flexion

4

movement in sagittal plane, back to anatomical position

extension

5

movement in frontal plane, away from anatomical position

abduction

6

movement in frontal plane, back to anatomical position

adduction

7

reference point turns out, away from midline

external rotation

8

reference point turns in, towards midline

internal rotation

9

abduction in horizontal plane

horizontal abduction

10

adduction in horizontal plane

horizontal adduction

11

foot movement, reference line is turned in towards midline

inversion

12

foot movement, reference line is turned out away from midline

eversion

13

foot movement, triplanar movement which combines the movements of inversion, horizontal adduction, and plantar flexion (open chain)

supination

14

forearm movement, turning the palm down

pronation

15

forearm movement, turning the palm up

supination

16

wrist adduction

ulnar deviation

17

wrist abduction

radial deviation

18

foot movement towards dorsal surface

dorsi flexion

19

foot movement towards plantar surface

plantar flexion

20

movement from midline in frontal plane (occurs in neck and trunk)

lateral flexion

21

not a pure movement; combination of the basic four: flexion, extension, abduction and adduction

circumduction
