Foot and Ankle The foot is a complex structure at the end of the leg that is made of more than 26 bones and 33 joints.

It provides balance, assists in mobility, and performs other essential functions for humans. The foot is the lowest point of the human leg. The foot’s shape, along with the body’s natural. With a good grasp of foot anatomy it readily becomes apparent which surgical approaches can be used to access various areas of the foot and ankle.

There are a variety of anatomical structures that make up the anatomy of the foot and ankle (Figure 1) including. Anatomy Of The Foot And Ankle This complex anatomy consists of: 26 bones 33 joints Muscles Tendons Ligaments Blood vessels, nerves, and soft tissue In order to understand conditions that affect the foot and ankle, it is important to understand the normal anatomy of the foot and Size: KB.

Ankle & Lower Leg anatomy. Tibia: The medial, larger bone of the lower leg. The proximal portion of the tibia is tibial plateau which acts as a cusp for the knee, the distal portion tapers into the medial malleoli and the concave surface which articulates with the talus at the ankle joint.

Fibula: The smaller lateral bone of the lower leg. Joints of the foot. Besides the ankle joint which connects the foot with the leg, the bones of the foot articulate among themselves through many synovial joints.

There are four groups of foot joints: intertarsal, tarsometatarsal, metatarsophalangeal, and interphalangeal. The intertarsal joints are between the tarsal bones.

These joints are the subtalar (talocalcaneal), talocalcaneonavicular, calcaneocuboid, cuneonavicular, cuboideonavicular, and intercuneiform joints. The ankle joint or tibiotalar joint is formed where the top of the talus (the uppermost bone in the foot) and the tibia (shin bone) and fibula meet.

The ankle joint is both a synovial joint and a hinge joint. Hinge joints typically allow for only one direction of motion much like a door-hinge.

Sprained ankle: Damage to one of the ligaments in the ankle, usually from an accidental twist or turn of the foot. Rehabilitation can prevent pain and swelling from becoming a long-term problem. The Hindfoot: the hindfoot comprises of the ankle joint found at the bottom of the leg and is where the end of the tibia and fibula meet the ankle bone known as the talus.

It also includes the heel bone, known as the calcaneus. The Midfoot: The five bones of the midfoot are what make up our foot arches. They are arranged in a pyramid shape to be the shock absorbers of the feet.

The ankle consists of three bones attached by muscles, tendons, and ligaments that connect the foot to the leg. In the lower leg are two bones called the tibia (shin bone) and the fibula.

These bones articulate (connect) to the Talus or ankle bone at the tibiotalar joint (ankle joint) allowing the foot to move up and down. Tibia (shin bone) Fibula; Talus.

A thorough knowledge of the ankle anatomy is absolutely necessary for diagnosis and adequate treatment of ankle injury. The ankle is among the most prevalent joints injured in sports, the ankle.

Your ankle bone and the ends of your two lower leg bones make up the ankle joint. Your ligaments, which connect bones to one another, stabilize and support it.

Your muscles and tendons move it. The most common ankle problems are sprains and fractures. A sprain is an injury to the ligaments. It may take a few weeks to many months to heal completely. The bones of the knee and the leg include the femur, which is the large thigh bone; the tibia and fibula, which are the leg bones between the knee and ankle; and the patella, which is sometimes called the kneecap.

The ankle or talocrural joint is formed from the tibia and fibula of the lower leg and talus of the foot. Functionally, it acts as a hinge, allowing dorsiflexion (pulling the foot upwards towards the lower leg) and plantarflexion (pulling the foot downwards away from the lower leg).

Lower extremity, including hip, thigh, leg, ankle, and foot: Definition (NCI_CDISC) The limb that is composed of the hip, thigh, leg and foot. (NCI) Definition (NCI_CDISC) The posterior limb of an animal.

The foot and ankle consists of 26 bones, 33 joints, and many muscles, tendons and ligaments. Bones of the Ankle. The ankle joint connects the leg with the foot, and is composed of three bones: tibia, fibula and talus. Sometimes called pes planus, or flat feet, this is a deformity in which the arc of the underside of the foot straightens out, often so completely that the entire sole of the foot comes in contact with the floor.

The result can be a pain in the midfoot area, swelling of the ankle and arch of the foot, and even hip, knee, or lower back pain. Understanding the anatomy of the ankle ligaments is important for correct diagnosis and treatment.

Ankle ligament injury is the most frequent cause of acute ankle pain. Chronic ankle pain often finds its cause in laxity of one of the ankle ligaments.

Structure and Function. The foot nerves originate from the sciatic nerve, made up of the L4 to S3 nerve roots. The sciatic nerve, which provides motor innervation to the muscles of the posterior thigh and sensory innervation to the lateral side of the lower leg and lateral side and sole of the foot, ends just above the posterior knee in the popliteal fossa and bifurcates into the common Author: Alex Tang, Bruno Bordoni.

The talus is the second largest tarsal and is key in transmitting weight-bearing forces from the lower leg to the foot. The body of the talus articulates in the talocrural joint. The superior surface of the body is referred to as the talar dome. The talar neck lies anterior to the body.

The talar head articulates with the navicular anteriorly and the calcaneus inferiorly. ‎A new approach to learning anatomy: Use your favorite ebook device and learn the most relevant anatomical structures of the Ankle and foot on the go.

The ankle is the portion of the body where the foot and leg join together. Although the ankle is frequently referred to as one joint, it is, in fact, three different joints.

The three joints that make up the ankle include the inferior tibiofibular joint, the subtalar joint, and the talocrural joint/proper ankle : Daniel Nelson.The true ankle joint is composed of three bones, seen above from a front, or anterior, view: the tibia which forms the inside, or medial, portion of the ankle; the fibula which forms the lateral, or outside portion of the ankle; and the talus underneath.

The true ankle joint is responsible for the up-and-down motion of the foot.Foot Definition. The foot is a part of vertebrate anatomy which serves the purpose of supporting the animal’s weight and allowing for locomotion on land.

In humans, the foot is one of the most complex structures in the body. It is made up of over moving parts – bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments designed to allow the foot to balance the body’s weight on just two legs and support.
