Ankle and foot joints and ...

Other Terms: Ligaments of the foot and ankle


A series of three principal joints allow for most of the movement that occurs in the region of the ankle. These are complex joints with strong ligaments between the articulating bones. From proximal to distal these joints are the ankle or talocrural joint, subtalar or talocalcaneal joint, and the transverse tarsal joint. The last two joints mentioned are intertarsal joints within the foot proper, while the first joint is the joint between the leg skeleton and foot skeleton. Like the hand, the foot also has joints associated with the digits.
