Flexor Digitorum Brevis Muscle

The flexor digitorum brevis muscle is a relatively large short muscle of the foot, running on its plantar side from the medial aspect of the calcaneous' tuberosity to each of the lesser toes. Generally, a flexor muscle is one that decreases the angle between two bones, as in raising the leg toward the stomach when kicking a football.
