The ankle brings stability and balance when walking or standing, and must endure continuous movement and positions. The ankle joint is made up of ligaments and three bones that provide support — the tibia (shin bone), fibula (skinnier bone next to shin bone), and the talus (bone in foot that sits above the heel). The ankle joint allows the foot to move up and down while the subtalar joint, which sits below the ankle joint, allows the foot to move left and right. If you are suffering from a foot or ankle injury, you know how limiting it can be on a daily basis. Elite athletes from across the world trust our foot and ankle doctors to help them treat their injury and get back to peak performance.
