Transverse Abdominis Muscle

Transverse indicates across. Abdominis comes from the Latin word abdere which implies to stow away. From this then you get a concept that the abdominals, as a whole, feature to “store away” materials (the digestive system body organs).

Where does the transverse abdominis muscular tissue attach?

The Transverse Abdominis is not actually considered to have a regular origin or insertion because the muscular tissue fibers run horizontally.


It affixes at one end (considered the “origin” by some) at the inguinal tendon, the iliac crest, the thoracolumbar aponeurosis and also the internal surface area of the costal cartilages 7-12.


It connects at the other end (taken into consideration the “insertion” by some) on the stomach aponeurosis as well as the linea alba.

What actions does the transverse abdominis muscular tissue do?

The function of the transverse abdominis is to press the stomach components. It’s the natural girdle all of us wear. As holds true with all of the abdominal muscular tissues, stablizing is a key function.
