Suggest that anyone replying check their use of kinesiology terms - search first on the internet and include a few links.

There is a common tendency to look at the body part, for example, the knee, that moves or rotates and to call that motion 'knee rotation'. In kinesiology terminology the joint is identified and the motion associated with that joint. If you sit on a table with the leg hanging over the edge and rotate the foot that is 'knee rotation'.

I have noticed that a small percent of the numerous Google illustrations are wrong or misleading. Best to get an anatomical definition.
