This is a table of skeletal muscles of the human anatomy. List of skeletal muscles of the human body_sentence_0

There are around 640 skeletal muscles within the typical human body. List of skeletal muscles of the human body_sentence_1

Almost every muscle constitutes one part of a pair of identical bilateral muscles, found on both sides, resulting in approximately 320 pairs of muscles, as presented in this article. List of skeletal muscles of the human body_sentence_2

Nevertheless, the exact number is difficult to define because different sources group muscles differently, e.g. regarding what is defined as different parts of a single muscle or as several muscles. List of skeletal muscles of the human body_sentence_3

The muscles of the human body can be categorized into a number of groups which include muscles relating to the head and neck, muscles of the torso or trunk, muscles of the upper limbs, and muscles of the lower limbs. List of skeletal muscles of the human body_sentence_4

The action refers to the action of each muscle from the standard anatomical position. List of skeletal muscles of the human body_sentence_5

In other positions, other actions may be performed. List of skeletal muscles of the human body_sentence_6

The muscles cross the metatarsophalangeal joint of toes III-V so the insertions correspond with the origin and there is no crossing between toes.List of skeletal muscles of the human body_cell_47_1_2 Plantar Artery, and Dorsal Metatarsal ArteryList of skeletal muscles of the human body_cell_47_1_3 lateral plantar nerveList of skeletal muscles of the human body_cell_47_1_4 Since the intersseous muscles cross on the metatarsophalangeal joint, then they act on that specific joint and cause adduction of toes III, IV, and V. Adduction itself is not of extreme importance to the toes, but these muscles work together with the dorsal interosseous muscles in flexion of the foot. They also work together to strengthen the metatarsal arch.List of skeletal muscles of the human body_cell_47_1_5 Dorsal interossei of the footList of skeletal muscles of the human body_cell_47_1_6
