The ankle is truly complex and it sustains great pressures.There are two joints known as the subtalar joint and the true ankle joint in our ankle. The subtalar joint consists of the talus and calcaneus bones which control side to side motion of the foot while the true ankle joint has 3 bones, namely - the tibia, fibula and talus. These take care of the up and down movement. The ends of the joint bones are covered by the articular cartilage and the major ligaments of the ankle are called the anterior tibiofibular, lateral collateral and deltoid. Together, they provide lateral and medial stability.
