Ask a question

Definition

The anterior tibial muscle is one of the muscles that form the leg's muscle mass. It is located on the front aspect of the leg, stretched between the foot and the tibia. The role of the anterior tibial muscle is related to that of the plantar muscle, triceps surae muscle, tibialis posterior, and peroneus longus muscle. The anterior tibial muscle enables the rotation of the foot towards the inside and the elevation of the leg in flexion. The deep peroneal nerve and a part of the peroneal nerve supply innervation to the anterior tibial muscle.
