Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes anatomy of the adductor brevis muscle.

The adductor brevis muscle is one of the six adductor muscles of the hip. Here is a diagram showing the arrangement of the six adductor muscles of the hip. Here is a diagram which shows the attachment of the adductor muscles from the pelvis. The adductor brevis muscle originates from the inferior pubic ramus, inferior to the origin of the adductor longus muscle. It is inserted into the pectineal line and the superior part of the medial lip of the linea aspera. Here is a diagram which shows the insertion of the adductor muscles into the femur. The adductor brevis muscle is innervated by the obturator nerve. Outsider the obturator foramen in the proximal part of the thigh, the obturator nerve divides into anterior and posterior divisions. In front of the adductor brevis muscle lies the anterior division of the obturator nerve. Posterior to the adductor brevis muscle lies the posterior division of the obturator nerve. The adductor brevis muscle lies in between the two divisions of the obturator nerve. The adductor brevis muscle adducts and flexes the hip, and helps to laterally rotate the thigh.
