What is the anatomy of the ankle?

Anatomical terminology. The ankle, or the talocrural region, is the region where the foot and the leg meet. The ankle includes three joints: the ankle joint proper or talocrural joint, the subtalar joint, and the inferior tibiofibular joint. The movements produced at this joint are dorsiflexion and plantarflexion of the foot.

What bone sticks out on the inside of your ankle?

The Ankle Joint. Inside of the medial malleolus: This is located at the lower end of the tibia, and it moves against the inner side of the upper surface of the talus. This is the bone that sticks out on the inside of your ankle. You can easily see and feel it.

Why is the ankle important to the body?

Its health and ability to function are crucial to everyday activities and comfort. The ankle is an important joint, connecting the lower leg bones to the foot bones. It is divided into the lower ankle and upper ankle. The lower ankle allows your foot to tilt to the side and turn outwards and inwards.

What are the movements produced at the ankle?

[edit on Wikidata] The ankle, or the talocrural region, is the region where the foot and the leg meet.

What is the anatomy of the ankle joint?

The ankle anatomy is a complex hinged synovial joint that is formed by three bones: the tibia, the fibula and the talus bone. These bones are connected by a very strong ligaments that maintain the joint stability. Ankle joint if formed by:

How many bones are in the ankle?

The ankle is the joint between the foot and leg, composed of three separate bones. The inner bone is the tibia, or shinbone, which supports most of a person’s weight when standing.

Where do the bones of the foot and ankle meet?

The bones of the foot and ankle begin with the ankle joint itself. The ankle joint, talocrural joint, is formed where the distal end of the leg meets the foot. The ankle joint is formed where the talus (the uppermost bone in the foot) and the tibia (shin) meet.

How does ankle mobility affect your knee performance?

Research has shown that a lack of ankle mobility can increase rotational torque at the knee. This falls right in line with the joint-by-joint school of thought with respect to training; if you lock up a joint that should be mobile, the body will look elsewhere to create that range-of-motion.

What is “uncompensated” ankle mobility?

In a more “uncompensated” scenario, an athlete with poor ankle mobility may push through the toe instead of the heel – creating a quad-dominant propulsion in a scenario that should have signification contribution from the posterior chain musculature.

What does it mean when you have a “pinch” in your ankle?

When there is a “pinching” in the anterior/lateral ankle joint that usually signals that the talocrural (ankle joint) is lacking the posteriorly directed glide associated with ankle dorsiflexion.
