eversion

A turning outwards.

eversion

with reference to the foot, tilting of the sole outwards. eversion injury damage to the medial structures of the ankle joint, by outward turning of the foot; the relative strength of the medial (deltoid) ligament may result in a fragment of bone being pulled off (avulsion fracture) rather than tearing of the ligament, and also accounts for it being less common than inversion injury.

eversion

planar movement of a body segment, so that the distal part turns away from the midline
  • foot eversion frontal-plane movement of the foot at subtalar and midtarsal joints, by hindfoot rotation (along its longitudinal axis), so that the sole of the foot is directed away from the midline of the body

  • hip eversion transverse-plane movement of lower limb at hip joint by leg rotation about its longitudinal axis, so that the patella is directed away from the midline of the body

eversion

a turning inside out; a turning outward, e.g. of the uterus, the third eyelid. See under each anatomical location.
