ANKLE DIAGNOSTICS AND TREATMENTS

The ankle is the joint that makes up-and-down movement of the foot possible. Below the ankle joint sits the subtalar joint, which supp[orts] side-to-side motion of the foot. Many ligaments (made of tough, moveable tissue) surround the true ankle and subtalar joints, binding the bones of the leg to each other, and at the same time to those of the foot.
