Foot and ankle anatomy

The foot and ankle is a complex joint involved in movement and providing stability and balance to the body. The foot and ankle consists of 26 bones, 33 joints, and many muscles, tendons and ligaments. Our feet and ankle bones are held in place and supported by various soft tissues such as cartilage, ligaments, muscles, tendons and bursae.

The ankle and foot have a complex anatomy which functions together to help us run and walk.  Any condition or injury that disrupts the way these tissues work greatly impacts the normal functioning of the foot and ankle.
