Protraction: Protraction is an anatomical term that is used to describe a specialized action of a muscle on a bone or joint. When a muscle protracts, it moves the arms in the anterior or forward direction at the shoulders, such as occurs when reaching far forward for an object. Thrusting forward of the jaw or pelvis is also called protraction.
Protraction is the opposite action of retraction. Conditions that can affect normal protraction include musculoskeletal trauma, bone fracture, myalga, muscle/tendon rupture, muscle/tendon tears, strains, arthritis, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, and neuromuscular diseases.
