The soft tissues of the foot and toes

Muscles and tendons

We all know what muscles are: they’re the meaty parts of the body that contract to move us. Tendons are very strong, tough, fibrous extensions of muscles that attach to bone. Some tendons are short, while others can be quite long. Tendons play a critical role in the structure of the foot. Two in particular - the plantar fascia and the calcaneal tendon - are very visible. The former is the structure that comprises the arch of your foot, while the latter is better known as the Achilles tendon ; it runs vertically from the heel, connecting to the calf. An injury to either of these will hinder your ability to walk or even cause total lameness.

Visible tendons don’t stop there. The long, thin ridges that run along the top of your foot and out to your toes are also tendons, called the extensor digitorum longus tendons (the one out to the big toe has a different name: hallucis instead of digitorum).

Think of tendons as the strings pulling the limbs of a puppet. Muscles flex and, in response, the tendons, like very strong ropes, pull the bones (which are anchored in joints).

Between muscles and tendons, an anatomy chart of the foot - minus its skin - is a maze of criss-crossing flesh patterns. As with the hands, a lot of evolution went into developing these extremities.

Veins and nerves

A surprisingly large amount of blood circulates through our feet. The dorsal venous arch, for example, is very visible running beneath the surface of our skin, in a reverse u-shape, over the top of the foot. But when you think about the amount of activity taking place in your feet, it makes sense. Good circulation is vitally important to your foot’s ongoing health.

Few parts of the body rely upon greater nerve sensitivity. The ability to walk is due, in si...
