What is flexibility?
HealthCorps answeredFlexibility is the ability to move, bend and stretch in a full range of motion. Flexibility increases athletic performance and reduces the risk of muscular strain and injury. Stretching is an example of flexibility exercise.
What are the symptoms of flaccid paralysis?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
The symptoms of flaccid paralysis will depend heavily on the underlying condition that causes it. The primary symptom is sudden onset of weak muscles and occasionally paralysis in children under the age of fifteen. Weakness often occurs in the arms, but most often the legs. One side of the body can be affected more than the other, or both may be affected similarly. The muscles in the respiratory system can also be affected, which sometimes causes breathing problems.
What is range of motion?
Healthwise answeredRange of motion is the degree of movement a joint has when it is extended, flexed and rotated through all of its possible movements. A joint becomes stressed or overextended if it is moved past its natural range. A person may increase a joint's range of motion through regular, gentle stretching exercises as directed by a health professional. Often these exercises are recommended after an injury or surgery to help prevent joint stiffness.
