Ankle Anatomy

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.
