Adductor Magnus Muscle – Function & Origins – Human Anatomy | Kenhub


Hello again, everyone. It’s Matt from Kenhub.
And in this tutorial, we will discuss the origin, insertion, innervation, and function
of the adductor magnus. The adductors of the hip are part of the inner
hip musculature and range from the lower pelvic bone to the femur and knee region. The hip
adductors shape the surface anatomy of the medial thigh. This focus of this tutorial will be the adductor
magnus. The adductor magnus muscle is one of the biggest
muscles of the human body. It originates at the inferior pubic ramus, the ischial ramus,
and the ischial tuberosity… And inserts both at the linea aspera and the
adductor tubercle of the medial epicondyle. The innervation is mainly supplied by the
obturator nerve which arises from the lumbar plexus and reaches the adductors through the
obturator canal. The superficial part of the adductor magnus
is supplied by the tibial nerve. As the name suggests, the main function of
the hip adductors is the adduction of the hip joint. The adductor magnus additionally
supports outward rotation, inward rotation, flexion, and extension. Overall, the hip adductors play an important
role in balancing the pelvis during standing and walking. This video is more fun than reading a textbook,
