What muscle extends the toes?

Answer

The muscles that extend the toes are the flexor hallucis longus, which flexes and extends the big toe, and the flexor digitorum longus, which flexes and extends the “lateral” four toes. The muscle known as the “flexor hallucis longus” is found on the posterior surface near the fibula and shaft.

According to For Dummies, the muscle is inserted in the base part of an area known as the distal phalanx in each big toe. The muscle known as the flexor digitorum longus is located on the tibia, and these tendons are inserted into the base part of an area known as the distal phalanges of each foot of the four toes.
