Group XV. Function: Adduction of hip (1, 2, 3, 4); flexion of hip (1, 2); flexion of knee (4). Mesial thigh group: (1) Adductor longus; (2) adductor brevis; (3) adductor magnus; (4) gracilis.

Adduction Of Hip

Hip adduction happens when the femur moves back to the midline. Numerous muscles add to these developments. The gluteus maximus is the primary hip extensor, however the sub-par bit of the adductor magnus additionally assumes a part. The adductor bunch is answerable for hip adduction.

Flexion Of Hip

 Contraction of the iliacus and psoas significant produces flexion of the hip joint. At the point when the appendage is allowed to move, flexion presents the thigh. At the point when the appendage is fixed, for what it's worth here, flexion of the two hips brings the body upstanding

Flexion Of Knee 

A flexion distortion of the knee is the failure to completely fix or broaden the knee, otherwise called flexion contracture. Typical dynamic scope of movement of the knee is 0° expansion and 140° flexion. By and large, flexion deformations happen reciprocally. The disfigurement is either transitory or perpetual.

Adductor Longus

In the human body, the adductor longus is a skeletal muscle situated in the thigh. One of the adductor muscles of the hip, its fundamental capacity is to adduct the thigh and it is innervated by the obturator nerve. It frames the average mass of the femoral triangle.

Adductor Brevis

The adductor brevis is a muscle in the thigh arranged promptly profound to the pectineus and adductor longus. It has a place with the adductor muscle gathering. The fundamental capacity of the adductor brevis is to pull the thigh medially.

Adductor Magnus

The adductor magnus is a huge three-sided muscle, arranged on the average side of the thigh. The adductor magnus is an incredible adductor of the thigh, made particularly dynamic when the legs are moved from a wide spread situation to one in which the legs equal one another.


The gracilis is the shallowest and average of the muscles at the average compartment of thigh. It is situated close to the adductor musculature. and crosses at both the hip and knee joints. Because of its connection to the proximal tibia, the gracilis can give more capacity than its adjoining muscles.
