Conditions / Treatments
The foot and ankle are complex structures that work together to support the body and allow us to walk, run, and jump. The foot is made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The ankle is a hinge joint that connects the foot to the leg. It is made up of three bones: the talus, the calcaneus, and the tibia.
The foot and ankle work together to absorb shock, provide stability, and allow for a wide range of motion. The foot is also important for balance and proprioception, which is the awareness of the position of the body in space. There are many different foot and ankle conditions, some of the most common include: ankle sprains, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, bunions, flat feet, and hammertoes.
