ANATOMY OF THE FOOT & ANKLE

AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE STRUCTURE OF THE FOOT & ANKLE

The foot and ankle are comprised of numerous bones and soft tissue structures that allow for normal functions such as walking, running and jumping. While the connection of bones form a flexible joint, the soft tissues, including muscles, tendons and ligaments, work together to produce motion and stability, and maintain balance for the body.
