What are the four main types of movement?

Ranges of Motion:1) Flexion: bending a joint to decrease the angle between two bones or two body parts.2) Extension: straitening and extending of the joint to increase the angle between two bones or body parts.3) Abduction: Moving the body part away from the body.4) Adduction: moving the body part toward the mid-line of the body.5) Rotation: Moving the body part around its axis.6) Internal rotation: Moving of shoulder or hip would point the toes or the flexed forearm inwards towards the mid-line.7) External rotation: Moving would turn the toes or the flexed forearm outwards away from the mid-line.8) Supination: Turning the palm of the hand upward.9) Pronation: Turning the palm of the hand outward.10) Eversion: Turning the body part outward.11) Inversion: turning the body part inward.12) Planter flexion: Bending of the foot that causes the toe to point downward, as if pressing an automobile pedal.14) Dorsiflexion: Bending of the foot that causes the toe to point upward.15) Circumduction:The circular (or, more precisely, conical) movement of a body part, such as a ball-and-socket joint or the eye. It consists of a combination of flexion, extension, adduction, and abduction. "Windmilling" the arms or rotating the hand from the wrist are examples of circumductive movement.16) Opposition: A motion involving a grasping motion of the thumb and fingers.17) Reposition: To release an object by spreading the fingers and thumb.
