Ask a question


Adductors are the muscles whose main role is to allow adduction, which is the movement that draws the member to which the muscle is attached closer to the rest of the body. Adductor muscles can be found in different locations of the human body: in the arm, hand, fingers, the inner thigh, and the foot. Certain adductor muscles can also have other functions; especially those in the thigh which also allow for part of the bending and the rotation of the leg.
