The foot is the most complicated joint of the body, made up of 26 bones altogether and about 30 joints, while managing to transfer the whole of the body’s weight to the ground. These bones, attached to almost a hundred muscles, ligaments and tendons, work in unison like a precisely-tuned machinery to bear the weight of the body and help us in movement. The numerous bones and joints of the foot keep the body’s movement stable even on undulating surfaces.
The foot can be divided into three parts namely the forefoot, midfoot and hindfoot. The forefoot is the frontal part of the feet which includes the toes and the 14 bones that make it up. There are also five other thicker bones which help in pushing the body forward. The midfoot is made up of five irregularly shaped bones, known as tarsals. Tarsals form the middle arch of the foot, playing an important role in bearing the body’s weight and providing stability. The hindfoot consists of two large bones called the talus and the calcaneus. The calcaneus is the larger between the two and forms the heel of the foot. The talus is fixed on top of the heel, forming the rotatable joint of the ankle. The muscles of the foot are attached to all these bones by the ligaments and tendons. The strongest and most important tendon in the foot is the Achilles Tendons, originating in the calf muscles and ending in the heels. These help in running, climbing and standing on our toes.
