The results showed that the adductor magnus, the semimembranosus, and the long and short heads of the biceps femoris were the most frequently involved muscles across the three phenotypes, while the gracilis and sartorius were less involved.
Additionally, there was severe edema involving the left hip adductor muscles (quadratus femoris, obturator externus, and obturator internus), high-grade partial thickness tearing of the adductor magnus muscle at its femoral attachment, and highgrade partial thickness tearing of the obturator internus muscle at its iliac attachment.
One study, by using body surface bony landmarks and a longitudinal reference line, has described the superior-inferior relationship between the "Extramuscular Motor Points" (equavelant to "Nerve Entry Points") of the gracilis, adductor longus, adductor brevis, and adductor magnus muscle.
An MRI with contrast enhancement of the right thigh was obtained, including T1- and T2-weighted as well as fat suppression images, which revealed the presence of a 9.0 X 6.0 X 5.0 cm lesion in the right adductor magnus muscle, with sparse areas of necrosis and irregular contrast enhancement (Figure 1).
The adductor magnus muscle is innervated by both the posterior branch of the obturator nerve and the sciatic nerve [27].
The adductor muscle group consists of six different muscles: pectineus, gracilis, obturator externus, adductor brevis, adductor longus, and adductor magnus. Despite being a single-joint muscle, the adductor longus is the most commonly injured adductor muscle.
At this level we find the adductor magnus and below it the tibial nerve and popliteal artery and vein.
The five muscles are Adductor Magnus, Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius, Rectus Femoris and Iliacus.
These included the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus maximus, posterior adductor magnus, and erector spinae bilaterally, which were all activated by the implanted stimulator.
Muscles Target: quadriceps Synergists gluteus maximus, adductor magnus soleus; Dynamic Stabilizers: hamstrings, gastrocnemius; Stabilizers: erector spinae, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus Type: Front squat Dumbbells Instructions Stand with dumbbells grasped to sides.
Distally, the artery lies deep in the major gluteal muscle and follows a course along the adductor magnus muscle.
(2,3,7,8) There are articles examining adductor tears (9) and calcific tendinitis of the adductor magnus. (10) However, the case report literature is sparse in examining groin pain in athletes with a proven diagnosis of adductor tendinopathy through radiological evidence.
A Liverpool spokesman said: "A scan has confirmed a tear in the adductor magnus muscle in his right leg, and he is expected to be out between seven to 10 days."
MRI and T2-weighted images showed a hyperintense signal in the bilateral adductor muscle groups of the hip (especially in the adductor magnus) with swelling (Figure 1a).
The adductor group (adductor magnus, adductor longus, adductor brevis, pectineus, and gracilis) is located on the medial thigh and is responsible for adducting and medially rotating the thigh.
