Range of Motion is the measurement of movement around a specific joint or body part; there are three primary types of exercises specific to range of motion. Passive range of motion, Active-assistive range of motion and Active range of motion. Flexibility is the range of motion around a joint, and can refer to ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, and joints. Other tools used to measure joint angle at extension and flexion are an inclinometer, which assists in measuring the spinal angle, or even a tape measure for various joints.
