There are 20 muscles in the foot. They hold together the 26 foot bones providing form and structure to the foot. The main muscles of the foot are the anterior tibial, posterior tibial, peroneal tibial, extensors, and flexors. The anterior tibial allows the foot to flex upward. The posterior tibial supports the arch of the foot. The peroneal tibial controls the outward movement of the foot. The extensor muscles allow the toes and feet to extend upward. The flexor muscles allow your toes and feet to flex downward. There are also many smaller muscles in the toes that help them to curl and move. Interested in learning more about the foot muscles?
