Question Answer
Coronal plane Divides the body into front and back. Movements along this plane are called adduction and abduction. Adduction moves the extremity towards the midline and abduction moves the extremity away from the midline
Sagittal plane Divides the body into right and left. Movements along this plane are called flexion and extension. Flexion usually moves extremity forward (except at the knee, where it moves it backward). Extension moves the extremity backward.
Transverse plane Divides the body into upper and lower halves. Movement along this plane is called rotation. Rotation is further classified as internal (toward the midline) and external (away from the midline). Internal and external rotation are also referred to as medial and lateral rotation, respectively.
