Ankle

Anatomy

The ankle consists of three joints between the tibia at the front of the shin, the fibular, which runs parallel to the tibia and the talus, the highest bone in the foot.

Motion in the ankle allows the rest of the lower limb / body to move over the foot as it progresses from heel to toe during normal walking and running, thus facilitating ‘straight-line’ mechanics of the entire lower limb. Motion in the subtalar joint of the ankle also provides us with shock absorption at heel strike and allows the foot to adjust to uneven ground.
