foot muscles

Foot Muscles:

The muscles acting on the foot can be classified into extrinsic muscles, those originating on the anterior or posterior aspect of the lower leg, and intrinsic muscles, originating on the dorsal or plantar aspects of the foot.

All muscles originating on the lower leg except the popliteus muscle are attached to the bones of the foot. The tibia and fibula and the interosseous membrane separate these muscles into anterior and posterior groups.

There are three groups of muscles in the sole of foot, those of the first and last digits, and a central group, generally categorized as Muscles of the big toe,Muscles of the little toe and Central muscles of foot.
