Flexion is the motion of the body that creates a sharper angle of a joint. For example, bringing the hand toward the shoulder is flexion of the elbow, moving the feet toward the buttocks is flexion of the knee, and bringing the knee toward the chest is flexion of the hips.

The motion opposing flexion is extension.
