ANTERIOR COMPARTMENT
MUSCLE ORIGINATION INSERTION FUNCTION
Extensor Digitorum
Longus
lateral condyle of
tibia
phalanges of 2nd to
5th digits
extends toes
Extensor Hallucis Longus anterior middle
region of fibula
distal phalanx of 1st
great toe
extends big toe
Tibialis Anterior anterior shaft of
tibia
medial cuneiform
and base of 1st
metatarsals
dorsiflexes ankle
inverts foot
POSTERIOR COMPARTMENT
MUSCLE ORIGINATION INSERTION FUNCTION
Gastrocnemius lateral and medial
condyles of femur
(Gastrocnemius
consists of lateral
head and medial head
which come together
to form the calf)
heads attach to
common tendon,
which fuses with the
tendons of the
soleus to form
calcaneal tendon
(Achilles tendon),
which inserts at
calcaneus
gastrocnemius
plantar flexes ankle
flexes knee
Soleus upper part of fibula
arch connecting
fibula to tibia
its tendon
combines with that
of the
gastrocnemius as
the calcaneal
tendon (Achilles
tendon), which
inserts at calcaneus
plantar flexes ankle
Flexor Digitorum Longus posterior middle
region of tibia
phalanges of 2nd to
5th digits
flexes toes
Flexor Hallucis Longus posterior aspect of
fibula
distal phalanx of
big toe
flexes big toe
Tibialis Posterior posterior surface of
tibia and fibula
tuberosity of
navicular bone
plantar flexes ankle
inverts foot
Popliteus lateral condyle of
femur
proximal shaft of
tibia below medial
conydyle (posterior
side)
medially rotates
leg to “unlock” knee
and initiate flexion
LATERAL COMPARTMENT
Fibularis Brevis and
Fibularis Longus
fibula 5th and 1st
metatarsals
plantar flexes ankle
eversion of foot
