The adductor muscles are often known as the groin area. The adductors are made up of the adducter magnus, adducter longus, brevis, pectineous and gracilis.
LOCATION OF THE ADDUCTOR MUSCLES
The adductor muscles start at the pelvis and continue along the thigh bone (femur) in the inner groin and along the inner thigh.
FUNCTION OF THE ADDUCTOR MUSCLES
The five adductor muscles work together to pull the thighs together. Other adductor muscles do different jobs, besides giving stability and power to the hip joint, they contribute to posture and standing poses and to flex the hip when needed for example pulling the thigh toward the body.
