Pes Anseurinus:

The Goose’s Foot

There are certain structures that I get drawn to every time I’m in the dissecting room, often because there is something about them that is mysterious or beautiful or which don’t really get discussed.  One of these is the grouping of three muscles known as Pes Anseurinus which means Goose Foot.  These three structures attach to the medial side of the tibia, but attach is completely the wrong word to use here. They blend in an incredibly intricate and dense pattern and then spread this density a long way down the leg.

The literature simply doesn’t explain to any satisfactory degree what or why these three muscles behave in this way or what impact they have on the body.  In this session I’ll be shedding some light on the structures themselves and discussing what role they might play in function or stability of the lower limb, as well as how they might contribute a greater role in whole body movement.  Lots of dissection images and videos and me getting excited!

My Pilates students have loved my renewed enthusiasm for dealing with their issues through functional movement.
