EHB: Extensor Hallucis Brevis

Did you know that the EHB (extensor hallucis brevis) the topic of today’s video tutorial, originates off of the forepart of the medial aspect of calcaneus & lateral talocalcaneal ligament. It is just above the bulk origin of the EDB (extensor digitorum brevis). It is frequently torn/strained in ankle inversion sprains and frequently goes undiagnosed. It can be torn/avulsed from the bone if the inversion sprain is focused below the lateral ankle joint. This occurs mostly when the foot is more plantarflexed before the inversion event. A foot cannot afford to have an impaired big toe ! Don’t miss this one !
