Help yourself to learn more about the structures of your foot using these printable diagrams of the foot that we have in the following anatomy diagram below. The detailed anatomy of the foot are illustrated clear pictures. Follow these diagrams to study more about the topic and we’ll start by giving you the muscle diagram below.
There are so many parts in our foot that you need to know. Shown in the foot diagrams, the foot is divided into 3 parts: the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot. The hindfoot is composed of 2 of the 7 tarsal bones, the talus, and the calcaneus; the midfoot contains the rest of the tarsal bones; and the forefoot contains the metatarsals and the phalanges. The forefoot contains the five toes (phalanges) and the five longer bones (metatarsals). The midfoot is a pyramid-like collection of bones that form the arches of the feet. These include the three cuneiform bones, the cuboid bone, and the navicular bone. The hindfoot forms the heel and ankle. Look at the other diagrams of the foot below.
The achilles tendon connects the heel to the calf muscle and is essential for running, jumping, and standing on the toes. The foot is an incredibly complex mechanism. This introduction to the anatomy of the foot will highlight the structures that relate to conditions and surgical procedures of the foot.
