Flexor Group

The adductor group is medial and swings the thigh toward the body. The muscles in this group arise from the rami of the pubis and ischium and insert on the posteromedial aspect of the femur. The abductor group is lateral, extending from the iliac crest to the head of the femur, and moves the thigh away from the body. This group includes the gluteus medius and minimus. These muscles help stabilize the pelvis during the stance phase of gait.
