Leg, limitation of extension of:

Extension

Something contrary to flexion is extension, which alludes to the fixing of a joint. All in all, leg extension attempts to abbreviate a joint point while extension attempts to increments it. Typically, an ordinary extension of a joint is restricted to 180 degrees or less. At the end of the day, that joint can essentially be opened until it is straight.

Hyperextension

Further on the far edge of the range from flexion is hyperextension or limited extension of leg. Similarly, as it sounds, hyperextension is an extraordinary form of an extension. You regularly hear that a competitor has endured a hyperextension. This is the thing that such a conclusion is alluding to.

Hypertension is characterized as an extreme joint development in which the point framed by the bones of a specific joint is opened, or fixed, past its typical, sound, scope of movement. So, while extension of a joint alludes to extending it or fixing it inside its ordinary cutoff points, hyperextension alludes to extending it exorbitantly past its typical cutoff points, as controlled by the scope of movement. Bowing of the joint in such a way regularly brings about injury issues, for example, tendon or ligament tears, or cartilage damage.
