Tibialis Anterior Muscle

The tibialis anterior muscle is a dorsal flexor of the foot. It is an elongated, spindle-shaped muscle located on the front of the lower leg. It arises from the surface of the tibia to pass on the inside over the far end of the tibia, and attaches to bones of the ankle and foot. Contraction of the tibialis anterior causes dorsiflexion and inversion of the foot.
