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.

ThoracoLumbar Fascia- {Erector Spinae group} {Iliopsoas} {Quadratus Lumborum}

See also {Erector Spinae group} {Iliopsoas} {Quadratus Lumborum}

The thoracolumbar fascia is a deed, thick, membrane which covers the deep muscles of the back in the Thoracic and Lumbar regions. In the Thoracic region it is a thin fibrous lamina which serves to hold together the Extensor muscles of the vertebral column and to separate them from the muscles connecting the vertebral column to the upper extremity. There are two muscles that

Gracilis Pain

The Gracilis muscle’s fibers run vertically downward, passing behind to the medial condyle of the femur, curving around the medial condyle of the tibia, and inserts into the upper part of the medial surface of the tibia, below the condyle (Confusing but see pic below). Because of its attachment the Gracilis muscle is considered a Ad-doctor.

 


Sartorius Pain

The sartorius muscle attaches above from the anterior inferior iliac spine, running obliquely across the upper and anterior part of the thigh. It extends down to the medial side of the knee joint passing behind the medial condyle of the femur to end. It is considered the longest muscle in the body and most bodybuilder refer to it as the “Rope” and is highly desired to show during leg poses in competition.
