Anterior Tibialis Pain

The Anterior Tibialis is where shin splints come from. The Anterior Tibialis job is to lift the front of the foot to clear the ground when running. This action can over work the muscle causing it to inflame. The inflammation compounded by a dropping Talus bone (flat footed), will pull down on the distal end of the Anterior Tibialis tendon pulling the muscle from the Tibia bone causing pain and inflammation. It is important to make sure you have proper arch support in your shoes with professional, doctor grade, shoe orthotics. This will help support the Talus bone and take the stress off the Tibialis muscle.

Peroneus Longus Brevis and Tertius Pain

 

Basically, the Peronius Longus muscle starts above from the head and upper two-thirds of the lateral surface of the fibula. It continues down running behind the lateral malleolus and attaches below on the lateral side of the base of the first metatarsal bone. It is part of three muscles known as the Peroneus group, Peroneus Longus Brevis and Tertius, The Peronius Longus plantar flexes and inverts the foot also supporting the arch.

The Extensor Hallucis Brevis arises from the calcaneus and attaches on the 1st proximal phalanx or the big toe where it help extend the big toe.

The Extensor Hallucis Longus starts at the anterior surface of the Fibula and also attaches below on the 1st Proximal Phalanx or big toe and helps extend it, but also causes dorsiflexion of the foot and ankle.
