Fibularis Longus - Actions

Actions

The Peronæi longus and brevis extend the foot upon the leg, in conjunction with the Tibialis posterior, antagonizing the Tibialis anterior and Peronæus tertius, which are dorsi-flexors of the foot.

The Peronæus longus also everts the sole of the foot, and from the oblique direction of the tendon across the sole of the foot is an important agent in the maintenance of the transverse arch.

Taking their fixed points below, the Peronæi serve to steady the leg upon the foot.

This is especially the case in standing upon one leg, when the tendency of the superincumbent weight is to throw the leg medialward; the Peronæus longus overcomes this tendency by drawing on the lateral side of the leg.

Famous quotes containing the word actions:

    When our actions do not,
    Our fears do make us traitors.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There is a Book
    By seraphs writ with beams of heavenly light,
    On which the eyes of God not rarely look,

    A chronicle of actions just and bright—
    There all thy deeds, my faithful Mary, shine;
    And since thou own’st that praise, I spare thee mine.
    William Cowper (1731–1800)

    We cannot assume the injustice of any actions which only create offense, and especially as regards religion and morals. He who utters or does anything to wound the conscience and moral sense of others, may indeed act immorally; but, so long as he is not guilty of being importunate, he violates no right.
    Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)
