Why do I have Ankle problems?

The ankle joint is the meeting of the bones of the leg and the foot and is responsible for the up and down motion of the foot.

In popular usage, the ankle is often considered to be the ankle joint plus the surrounding anatomic region, including the lower end of the leg and the start of the flat part of the foot. Pain in the ankle can result from inflammation or injury to any of the structures in this region, including the bones, joint space, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, or muscles.
