What is flexion extension abduction and adduction?
Abduction is the movement away from the midline of the body. Adduction is the movement toward the middle line of the body. Extension is the straightening of limbs (increase in angle) at a joint. Flexion is bending the limbs (reduction of angle) at a joint. Rotation is a circular movement around a fixed point.
What type of joint allows for flexion extension abduction adduction and rotation?
Ball-and-socket joints are multiaxial joints that allow for flexion and extension, abduction and adduction, circumduction, and medial and lateral rotation.
What is adduction movement?
Adduction: Movement of a limb toward the midline of the body. The opposite of adduction is abduction.
What is rotation and Circumduction?
Circumduction – this is where the limb moves in a circle. This occurs at the shoulder joint during an overarm tennis serve or cricket bowl. Rotation – this is where the limb turns round its long axis, like using a screw driver.
What kind of joint is being used to demonstrate abduction and adduction?

What are fibrous joints?
Fibrous joints are where adjacent bones are strongly united by fibrous connective tissue. The gap filled by connective tissue may be narrow or wide. The three types of fibrous joints are sutures, gomphoses, and syndesmoses. A suture is the narrow fibrous joint that unites most bones of the skull.
