Ankle problems


The ankle is made up of 3 main joints which along with muscles and ligaments, work together to allow movement and stability. The ankle is very important in everyday function, and enables us to meet the physical demands of daily activities, like walking and running.

There are 4 main bones which make up the ankle; these are the tibia, fibula, talus and calcaneus.

You have many muscles that pass around the ankle joint. The main muscles are Gastrocnemius, soleus, tibialis anterior, tibialis posterior and the peroneals. These muscles then attach to different bones in the leg and foot via structures called tendons.

There are numerous ligaments around the ankle which contribute to the stability of the joint. The ligaments of the ankle work together to prevent excessive movement.
