Ankle (anatomy) - Definition


Definition

The ankle is a joint of the lower limbs. It helps to articulate the foot. The ankle consists of lower parts of the tibia and fibula, and the talus bone. The ankle is held by two major ligaments, on each side, and the bones are joined by a joint capsule. The ankle is often subject to sprains, due to an abnormal extension of ligaments because it is in high demand for walking and sports.
