A handful of free and 101 Diagramss of the foot are available in high definition and quality! The human foot combines mechanical complexity and structural strength. Each foot is made up of 28 bones, 30 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments, all of which work together to provide support, balance and mobility. That’s really so many. Look further into the anatomy of the foot using these diagrams. First one is below.
You see in the diagram above, that’s a lot of things in your foot. You can notice that with so many things are there, the feet are flexible structures of bones, joints, muscles, and soft tissues that let us stand upright and perform activities like walking, running, and jumping. The foot itself can be 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 diagrams above show the detailed anatomy of the bones and joints of the foot. Joints in the feet are formed wherever two or more of these bones meet. The surfaces of the bones where they meet to form joints are covered with a layer of cartilage, which allows them to glide smoothly against one another as they move. The joints are enclosed by a fibrous capsule that is lined with a thin membrane called the synovium, which secretes a fluid to lubricate the joints.
In the foot, ligaments hold the tendons in place and stabilize the joints. It is what provides stability and enable the foot to move up and down. For a complete look and study on the foot anatomy, save all these diagrams of the foot and find the other anatomical diagrams in this site.
