Synovial joints: movement
Classifications of movements at Synovial joints
Simple movements, where flat bone surfaces move back and forth and from side to side with respect to one another. eg intercarpal and intertarsal joints.
There is increase and decrease in angle between articulating bones during movement. Types: i. flexion: there is decrease in angles. ii. extension: there is increase in angles. iii. lateral flexion: when intervertebral joints are involved and the movement is along the frontal plane. iv. hyperextension: continuation of extension beyond the anatomical position. v. abduction: movement of a bone away from midline. vi. aduction: movement of a bone towards midline. vi. circumbduction: movement of the distal end of body part in a circle.
A bone moves in a circle in it's own longitudinal axis.
Superior movement of a part of the body.
Inferior movement of a part of the body.
Movement of a part of the body anteriorly in the transverse plane.
Movement of the protracted part of the body back to the normal anatomical position.
