In humans, the gastrocnemius muscle ( / ˌ ɡ æ s t r ɒ k ˈ n iː m i ə s / or / ˌ ɡ æ s t r ə k ˈ n iː m i ə s / ; plural gastrocnemii ; Latin , from Greek γαστήρ "stomach" and κνήμη ( knḗmē ) "leg"; meaning "stomach of leg" (referring to the bulging shape of the calf) is a very powerful superficial bipennate muscle that is in the back part of the lower leg. It runs from its two heads just above the knee to the heel , a two joint muscle.
Images : Here you can see the calf muscles, first the superficial muscles. The two headed calf muscle (4) is removed in the 3rd picture. You can find the legend at the end of this page: Legend .
Among the leg muscles produce anterior, lateral and posterior muscle groups. To the front of the group are primarily extensors of the foot, to the lateral - flexor pronator of the foot and to the back - and flexors of the foot arch supports.
The lateral compartment of the lower leg is made up of the peroneus brevis and peroneus longus muscles, either of which can be the cause of a compartment syndrome. Compartments syndromes are either acute or chronic. An acute compartment syndrome is one that comes on suddenly and a chronic compartment syndrome has usually come on gradually over time.
