abduction, anteversion, retroversion
Explanation:
See ref below (glossary of physiotherpay terms)

See ref below (one of many referring to anteversion and retroversion)

The following extract illustrates usage:

"The legs are rotated internally and externally, noting the movement of the dot on each patella to judge the range of motion. Excessive rotation can usually be traced to /anteversion or retroversion/ of the femoral neck. Anteversion results in excessive toe-in, while retroversion has the opposite effect. In young children, excessive external rotation and restricted internal rotation may be the result of a slipped capital upper femoral epiphysis that has moved inferiorly and posteriorly." "Abduction: To test hip abduction passively, place the supine patient in the neutral position and stand at the patient's side. The examiner places his stabilizing forearm across the patient's pelvis. The examiner's active hand grasps one leg of the patient and slowly abducts the limb as far as possible (normally about 45°). At the end of abduction, the pelvis under the stabilizing arm begins to move."
