In this case, flexion would represent an increase in the joint angle (Fig. 1-9D). In other references, flexion begins at 180 degrees (full extension) and moves toward 0 degrees; thus, it is a decrease in the joint angle. Conversely, extension is the straightening movement of one bone away from another, causing an increase of the joint angle. This motion usually returns the body part to the anatomical position after it has been flexed (Fig. 1-9B, E). The joint surfaces tend to move away from each other.

3-2) has either hyaline cartilage or fibrocartilage between the two bones. The vertebral joints are examples of joints in which disks of fibrocartilage are directly connecting the bones. The first sternocostal joint is an example of the direct connection made by hyaline cartilage. Cartilaginous joints are also called amphiarthrodial joints, because they allow a small amount of motion, such as bending or twisting, and some compression. At the same time, these joints provide a great deal of stability.
