Adductor Brevis Muscle

The adductor brevis muscle arises from the pubic body and finds insertion at the posterior of the femur, in its upper third. The adductor brevis primarily adducts but also helps in lateral rotation of the hip. Generally, adductor muscles move a limb toward the central line of the body or a digit toward the axis of a limb. It comes from the Latin word, adductus, meaning one that draws to.
