There are numerous bones and joints located in the foot, and if you want to study each part precisely, you would need a diagram of the foot to understand the anatomy better. This article includes foot diagrams showing the bones of the foot and the joins. Provided as well below is a brief explanation about each part of the foot anatomy. Each of the diagrams is in printable size and ready to download.
As you can see in the diagram of the foot above, the foot is a part of vertebrate anatomy which serves the purpose of supporting the weight. The human’s foot is one of the most complex structures in the body. It is made up of over 100 moving parts which include bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Other movements, such as tilting and rotation take place in and around the joints in the foot itself.
The foot can be divided into three sections: the forefoot, midfoot, and hindfoot. The forefoot is the very front part of the foot, including the toes, or phalanges. It also provides attachment to several tendons. Midfoot is made up of five irregularly-shaped bones called the tarsals. The hindfoot includes the talus and the calcaneus.
With the many bones work together, knowing which part is which is important to prevent any injury to the foot. These diagrams show you an in-depth and satisfying understanding of the foot anatomy. Click on any of these diagrams for a better view!
