Ankle Conditions & Treatment
The ankle is a hinge-type, freely moving joint that consists of a capsule containing fluid which both nourishes and lubricates the joint making motion possible between the foot and the leg.
The ankle joint consists of the connection of the talus and the lower ends of the two leg bones (tibia and fibula). Multiple ligaments provide stability to the ankle joint.
The chief motions of the ankle are flexion and extension. Like synovial joints (those joints in which fluid is present) the ankle is subject to many diseases and injuries.
