Internal Rotation

Summary Information: Internal Rotation

Internal Rotation: Internal rotation is an anatomical term used to describe a general action of a muscle on a bone or joint. When a muscle rotates internally, it rotates the associated bone(s) and body part(s) toward the midline of the body. For example, internal rotation of the hip results in the pointing of the feet toward each other.

Internal rotation is the opposite action of external rotation. Conditions that can affect normal internal rotation include musculoskeletal trauma, bone fracture, myalga, muscle/tendon rupture, muscle/tendon tears, strains, arthritis, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, and neuromuscular diseases.
