Adduction is a medical term that refers to the movement of a body part towards the midline of the body. In other words, if you were to adduct your leg, you would move it from the outside of your hip towards the center of your body.
There are many muscles in the human body that allow us to perform various types of movements, and these muscles are grouped into different categories depending on their function. One such category is the adductor muscle group, which is responsible for mediating adduction movements at different joints throughout the body. The adductor muscles work to bring the foot towards the midline of the body.
