flexor digitorum profundus, flexor digitorum superficialis  

flexor digitorum profundus, flexor digitorum superficialis


ACTION
: finger flexors
REFERRAL: anterior fingers

COMMENTS: The two muscles that flex the fingers are the flexor digitorum superficialis and profundus. Both muscles are deep to the wrist flexors, with the superficialis laying on top of the profundus. The tendons of these muscles go through the carpal tunnel, and therefore can be a main cause of carpal tunnel syndrome when they become inflammed and swell.
