This results in foot drop and numbness. Thigh The femur is surrounded by muscle. Anteriorly lies the quadriceps, which has four parts: vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius, vastus medialis and rectus femoris. This powerful muscle, innervated by the femoral nerve, extends the knee. Posteriorly lie the hamstrings, semitendinosus, semimembranosus, and biceps femoris. These are innervated by branches of the sciatic nerve. The interval between the lateral edge of quadriceps and the posterior compartment provides convenient surgical access to the femoral shaft.

As an individual gets older the fibres of the annulus fibrosus degenerate and weaken. Excessive loading of the disc may result in rupture of the annulus fibrosus and herniation of the nucleus pulposus. This may press on nerve roots or the ­spinal cord. Spinal ligaments Three main groups of ligaments connect the vertebrae to each other: •• The anterior longitudinal ligament runs as a continuous band along the anterior aspect of the vertebral bodies from skull to sacrum. It is wide and strong. •• The posterior longitudinal ligament is a band connecting the posterior aspect of the vertebral bodies.

There are three groups of muscles: •• Posteriorly the gastrocnemius and soleus act to flex the knee and plantarflex the ankle. There are also muscles that flex the toes and ankle. The tibial nerve and artery run with these muscles. •• Laterally the peroneus longus and peroneus brevis evert the ankle. •• Anterolaterally the tibialis anterior, extensor hallucis longus and extensor digitorum longus extend (aka dorsiflex) the ankle, big toe and lesser toes, respectively. Similar to the thigh, the muscles are encased with tough fascia and separated by septa making compartment syndrome a risk in trauma.
