Foot and Ankle
Both your ankle and foot are vastly complex structures that are crucial for weight-bearing and balance. Since they are connected, injuries to either region often affect the other.
The ankle bone, called the talus, is located directly above the heel bone, known as the calcaneus. These bones are joined together with a subtalar joint that enables the foot to rotate.
Similarly, the soft tissues in the two structures are also joined together. In the heel, the achilles tendon connects to the calf muscle, which is essential for running, jumping, and standing on your toes.
