Difference between Foot and Tibia

Foot vs. Tibia

The foot (plural feet) is an anatomical structure found in many vertebrates. The tibia (plural tibiae or tibias), also known as the shinbone or shankbone, is the larger, stronger, and anterior (frontal) of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia), and it connects the knee with the ankle bones.

Similarities between Foot and Tibia

Foot and Tibia have 21 things in common (in Unionpedia): Ankle, Aponeurosis, Bone, Bone fracture, Extensor digitorum longus muscle, Extensor hallucis longus muscle, Femur, Fibula, Flexor hallucis longus muscle, Joint, Knee, Leg, Malleolus, Popliteus muscle, Soleus muscle, Squatting position, Talus bone, Tarsus (skeleton), Tibia, Tibialis anterior muscle, Tibialis posterior muscle.

Ankle

The ankle, or the talocrural region, is the region where the foot and the leg meet.

Aponeurosis

An aponeurosis (plural: aponeuroses) is a type or a variant of the deep fascia, in the form of a sheet of pearly-white fibrous tissue that attaches sheet-like muscles needing a wide area of attachment.

Bone

A bone is a rigid organ that constitutes part of the vertebrate skeleton.

Bone fracture

A bone fracture (sometimes abbreviated FRX or Fx, Fx, or #) is a medical condition in which there is a partial or complete break in the continuity of the bone.

Extensor digitorum longus muscle

The extensor digitorum longus is a pennate muscle, situated at the lateral part of the front of the leg.

Extensor hallucis longus muscle

The Extensor hallucis longus is a thin muscle, situated between the Tibialis anterior and the Extensor digitorum longus, that functions to extend the big toe and dorsiflex the foot, and assists with foot eversion and inversion.

Femur

The femur (pl. femurs or femora) or thigh bone, is the most proximal (closest to the hip joint) bone of the leg in tetrapod vertebrates capable of walking or jumping, such as most land mammals, birds, many reptiles including lizards, and amphibians such as frogs.

Fibula

The fibula or calf bone is a leg bone located on the lateral side of the tibia, with which it is connected above and below.

Flexor hallucis longus muscle

The flexor hallucis longus muscle (FHL) is one of the three deep muscles of the posterior compartment of the leg that attaches to the plantar surface of the distal phalanx of the great toe.

Joint

A joint or articulation (or articular surface) is the connection made between bones in the body which link the skeletal system into a functional whole.

Knee

The knee joins the thigh with the leg and consists of two joints: one between the femur and tibia (tibiofemoral joint), and one between the femur and patella (patellofemoral joint).

Leg

A leg is a weight bearing and locomotive anatomical structure, usually having a columnar shape.

Malleolus

A malleolus is the bony prominence on each side of the human ankle.

Popliteus muscle

The popliteus muscle in the leg is used for unlocking the knees when walking, by laterally rotating the femur on the tibia during the closed chain portion of the gait cycle (one with the foot in contact with the ground).

Soleus muscle

In humans and some other mammals, the soleus is a powerful muscle in the back part of the lower leg (the calf).

Squatting position

Squatting is a posture where the weight of the body is on the feet (as with standing) but the knees and hips are bent.

Talus bone

The talus (Latin for ankle), talus bone, astragalus, or ankle bone is one of the group of foot bones known as the tarsus.

Tarsus (skeleton)

The tarsus is a cluster of seven articulating bones in each foot situated between the lower end of tibia and fibula of the lower leg and the metatarsus.

Tibia

The tibia (plural tibiae or tibias), also known as the shinbone or shankbone, is the larger, stronger, and anterior (frontal) of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia), and it connects the knee with the ankle bones.

Tibialis anterior muscle

The tibialis anterior is a muscle in humans that originates in the upper two-thirds of the lateral (outside) surface of the tibia and inserts into the medial cuneiform and first metatarsal bones of the foot.

Tibialis posterior muscle

The tibialis posterior is the most central of all the leg muscles, and is located in the deep posterior compartment of the leg.
