Exercise For Sartorius Html

As its name implies, the biceps femoris (bi'seps fem'or-is) has two heads, one attached to the ischium and the other attached to the femur. This muscle passes along the back of the thigh on the lateral side and connects to the proximal ends of the fibula and tibia. The biceps femoris is one of the hamstring muscles, and its tendon (hamstring)

can be felt as a lateral ridge behind the knee. This muscle flexes and rotates the leg laterally and extends the thigh (figs. 9.36 and 9.37).

The semitendinosus (sem"e-ten'di-no-sus) is another hamstring muscle. It is a long, bandlike muscle on the back of the thigh toward the medial side, connecting the ischium to the proximal end of the tibia. The semi-tendinosus is so named because it becomes tendinous in the middle of the thigh, continuing to its insertion as a long, cordlike tendon. It flexes and rotates the leg medially and extends the thigh (fig. 9.37).

The semimembranosus (sem"e-mem'brah-no-sus) is the third hamstring muscle and is the most medially located muscle in the back of the thigh. It connects the is-chium to the tibia and flexes and rotates the leg medially and extends the thigh (fig. 9.37).
