Palmar Interosseous Muscles Origin

Metacarpal bones II, IV, and V Insertion

Base of the corresponding proximal phalanges

• Radiating into the tendons of the dorsal aponeurosis of fingers 2, 4, and 5

• Ulnar sesamoid bone of the thumb

Action

• Flexion of the proximal joints of the fingers with extension of the intermediate and distal joints

Innervation

Ulnar nerve (T1)

Trigger Point Location

Between the metacarpal bones (see Fig. 19.68)

Referred Pain

• Index finger (with a maximum on the radial side) and back of the hand (trigger point of the dorsal interosseous muscles of the index finger, a very common trigger point)

• Radial side of the fingers
