Lower Extremity Consists of the bones of the hip, thigh, leg, ankle, and foot
Fibrous joints (synarthroses) Bones of joints fit together closely, thereby allowing little or no movement
Cartilaginous joints (amphiarthroses) Bones of joints are joined together by hyaline cartilage or fibrocartilage; allow very little motion
Hinge joints articulating ends of bones form a hinge-shaped unity that allows only flexion and extension
Range of motion (ROM) Assessment used to determine extent of joint injury
