Muscle insertion refers to the point on a muscle where it attaches to a bone, a tendon, or another structure that it moves. This attachment site is typically the more movable part when the muscle contracts. Muscle insertion plays a vital role in generating movement; when a muscle contracts, it pulls on its insertion point, causing the joint to move.
