The adductor longus muscle is a muscle in the upper thigh that connects the pelvis to the femur and adducts the hip (pulls the hip inward toward the center of the body) and rotates it medially (rotates the knee cap inward).

Contents

Origin

The adductor longus muscle originates from the pubic bone of the pelvis, at a spot inferior and medial to the pubic tubercle.

Insertion

The adductor longus muscle inserts on the femur, at the lower two thirds of the medial linea aspera.

Innervation

The adductor longus is innervated by the anterior division of the obturator nerve (L2 and L3).
