Range of Motion
Well, almost every joint of the human body allows movement, except skull joint. In addition, there are so many other joints that allow a range of motion such as ankles and knees. You may not know what is a range of motion, range of motion means how far you can move your joint in each direction without any complication. For instance, here, we can take an example of the neck. No doubt, you can move your neck in any direction where you want to, but if you try to move your neck too far, then it will lead you to problems such as swelling, pain, and discomfort as well. Moreover, a range of motion is measured differently because every joint has a different range of motion in the human body.
This flexion is explained as bending and molding of a joint. This is completely opposite of hyperflexion, in the flexion condition the angle that is present between the two or more bones is decreased. This condition usually occurs when muscles contract and bones meet each other or nearby joints.
