The opposite movement of flexion is called extension.
To differentiate the two properly, let's define flexion first.
Flexion - it is the bending movement that decreases the angle on a certain joint. For example, if you try to lift your forearm so that your fingers meet your shoulder, that is flexion. Notice that you reduce the angle on the inner side of your elbow.
Now that you know flexion, let's go to extension. Extension is the stretching movement that gradually increases the angle on a certain joint, until it reaches its maximum limit of stretching. For example, you bring down your hand from your shoulders. You will notice that you increase the angle on the inner side of your elbow. This is called extension.
These two actions enable us to walk, run, kick, and a lot more. To know more about how flexion and extension works, you may read more about joints in the following links:
