What is Extension and Flexion? Movement of Limbs(At Shoulder and Hip Joints), Hand (At Wrist Joint), and Digits (At Metecarpophalangeal and interpharlangeal joints) Leg at knee joint and forearm at elbow joint ... vertebral column at intervertebral joints ... Foot at ankle joint
What is Extension of the Arm and Leg... Rotate the Arm Dorsally (back ward) at the shoulder joint and hi joint
What is Flexion of the Arm and Leg.... Rotate the Arm Ventrally (foward) at the shoulder joint and hip joint
What is Extension of Hand .... Extension of the hand up at the wrist joint
