Abduction: Abduction is an anatomical term used to describe a general action of a muscle on a bone or joint. Muscles of abduction act on the extremities. When a muscle abducts, it brings a bone and its related extremity, arm or leg, away from the saggital plane, or midline, of the body. For example, abduction is used when spreading apart the legs and knees. Muscles of abduction in the hands and feet pull the fingers and toes apart.
Abduction is the opposite action of adduction. Conditions that can affect normal abduction include musculoskeletal trauma, bone fracture, myalga, arthritis, muscle/tendon rupture, muscle/tendon tears, strains, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, and neuromuscular diseases.
