Brachioradialis muscle

In this article we will discuss about Brachioradialis muscle. So let’s get started.

Brachioradialis muscle

It originates from the upper 2/3rd of lateral supracondylar ridge of humerus and lateral intermuscular septum and gets inserted into the lateral aspect of distal end of radius proximal to the radial styloid process. It is innervated by radial nerve and artery supply is through the radial recurrent artery. It’s main function is flexion of elbow and pronation of forearm to 90°. Clinically a shooting pain in the forearm because of Brachioradialis pain can mimic tennis elbow but brachioradialis pain is limited to only this muscle whereas tennis elbow involves complete inflammation of extensor muscle and tendons of elbow.
