Origin: Anterior surface of the body of pubis, just lateral to the pubic symphysis The muscles in the medial compartment of the thigh are collectively known as the hip adductors. There are five muscles in this group; gracilis, obturator externus, adductor brevis, adductor longus and adductor magnus. All the medial thigh muscles are innervated by the obturator nerve, which arises from the lumbar plexus
What this muscle does, it adducts and flexes the thigh at the hip joint. That's the pectineus muscle. And then we've got a group of muscles called the adductor muscles. You've got the adductor longus, the adductor brevis and the adductor magnus ll. Muscles of Medial Compartment of Thigh. 4) Adductor magnus. a. Actions: anteriorly it adducts, laterally rotates and flexes thigh (at hip), posteriorly it aids hamstrings in extension. b. Innervation: Obturator nerve and Sciatic nerve. c. Origin: from ischial and pubic rami and ischial tuberosity. d The muscles of the medial part of the thigh include muscles that bring the thigh toward the midline and rotate it: Adductor longus: This muscle originates on the pubis and inserts onto the middle of the linea aspera of the femur. It's innervated by the obturator nerve and adducts the thigh The adductor part of this muscle flexes the thigh and the hamstring part helps extend the thigh. Gracilis adducts the thigh, flexes the leg and helps rotate it inward. Obturator externus rotates the thigh outward and steadies the hip joint. Pectineus muscle is a very small muscle that helps ad in flexion in the leg and helps in adduction Hip adductors . The hip adductors are a group of five muscles located in the medial compartment of the thigh.These muscles are the adductor longus, adductor brevis, adductor magnus, gracilis, and pectineus.. Due to their position, the hip adductors shape the surface anatomy of the medial thigh. More specifically, these muscles extend from the anteroinferior external surface of the bony pelvis.

This cord-like muscle runs the length of your inner thigh from your pelvis to the inside of your knee. The adductors work virtually any time your legs are active, whether for standing, squatting, lunging, and most other leg moves. You can work them directly with inner-thigh leg raises and Swiss Ball squeezes

Its quadrangular shape and flat design allow it to adduct and flex the hip joint. Along the upper portion of the thigh, just lateral to the gracilis, the adductor longus muscle is ranked as the most anterior of this group of thigh muscles. Positioned deep to the adductor longus. The muscles that act on the lower limb fall into three groups: those that move the thigh, those that move the lower leg, and those that move the ankle, foot, and toes.

This muscle is innervated by the obturator nerve and it acts to adduct the thigh and it also flexes the leg at the knee joint. Next, we've got the pectineus muscle, which is this muscle here. This muscle is a rectangular muscle and it's innervated by the femoral nerve Two of the muscles in this complex (the vastus lateralis and rectus femoris) are visible in the above image. The medial surface of the thigh, posterior to the sartorius and quadriceps group is covered by the gracilis, which adducts the thigh and flexes the leg. Its insertion is just inferior to the medial condyle of the tibia
It helps the other muscles flex the thigh and also adducts the thigh to bring it toward the midline of the body. Quadriceps. The quadriceps femoris is the large muscle that forms the front of your thigh. It has four sections. The rectus femoris, vastus lateralis and vastus medialis are attached to the hip bone.
