The Abductory Twist

An abductory twist is a motion that is seen as a ‘medial whip’ or ‘ sudden abduction’ of the heel as it just starts to come off the ground during gait.


There are several reasons offered for this. Some are distal and occur in the foot and some are proximal and occur in the hip. There is probably no consensus on this with podiatrosts more likely to think its coming from the foot and physical therapists more likely to think its coming from the hip.
