Flexor hallucis brevis- Flexes great toe at metatarsophalangeal joint - Plantar surface of cuboid and lateral cuneiform- Lateral and medial sides of base of proximal phalanx of the great toe- Lateral plantar nerve from tibial nerve: S1 ,S2- 1st plantar metatarsal artery
Adductor hallucis- Adducts great toe
- Assists in arch support
- Transverse head: ligaments metatarsophalangeal joints of toes 2-5
- Oblique head: bases of metatarsals 2-4
- Lateral side of base of proximal phalanx of great toe- Lateral plantar nerve from tibial nerve: S2,S3- 1st plantar metatarsal artery
Flexor digiti minimi brevis- Flexes little toe at metatarsophalangeal joint- Base of 5th metatarsal - Lateral base of proximal phalanx of little toe- Lateral plantar nerve from tibial nerve: S2,S3- Lateral plantar artery
