Caption: Thigh muscles. Artwork of the muscles of the anterior inner thigh. These are three muscles collectively termed the adductor muscles. Adduction is motion that brings a limb in towards the body. At top is the adductor brevis muscle, which attaches the underside of the pelvis to the back of the femur (thigh bone). Below and in front of the adductor brevis is the adductor longus, with the same attachments and action as the adductor brevis, except it is longer and broader. Below the adductor longus is the adductor magnus, attaching the pelvis to the lower end of the femur. It adducts, flexes and also extends the thigh.
