o- lateral condyle and proximal shaft of tibia and interosseous membrane i- first metatarsal and cuneiform (tarsal) a- dorsiflexion and inversion
o- head and superior shaft of fibula and lateral condyle of tibia i- base of first metatarsal and cuneiform a- eversion and is a weak plantar flexor
o- superior posterior non-articular surfaces of lateral and medial condyles of femur i-calcaneus via the calcaneal (achilles) tendon a- flexion of leg and plantar flexion of foot
o- head and proximal shaft of fibula and medial border of tibia i- calcaneus via the achilles tendon a- plantar flexion of foot
gastrocnemius and soleus
cutting away the fascia to relieve pressure
-ruptured achilles tendon -has to be left plantar flexed for months
Can occur when pressure builds up inside its fascial compartment because of bleeding or inflammation. The pressure will then compress blood vessels and the entire muscle will die for a lack of oxygen and a lack of energy.
-originate and insert within the foot -support the arches and move the toes to aid locomotion -no muscles in digits
-supports plantar surface of the foot -extends between the planges of the toes and the calcaneus
