pronator teres and pronator quadratus  

pronator teres and pronator quadratus


ACTION
: forearm pronation
REFERRAL: anterior/medial wrist

COMMENTS: These two pronator muscles, the pronator teres and quadratus, both pronate the forearm. The pronator teres is more of a trouble maker, because it does the majority of the work . Whenever someone has wrist pain, check this muscle for tension and tenderness. Also evaluate for range of motion and pain on resistance.
