Ankle

ankle-injuryThe human ankle consists of many small, detailed bones (tarsal bones), joints, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. The ankle is the joint that connects the foot to the tibia and fibula bones of the lower leg. Our ankles work in unison to help support our body weight, allow us to stand, walk or run, and move and flex in a variety of motions. The more active we are—the more we jump, bend, twist, and pivot—the more susceptible we are to obtaining an ankle injury.

Our ankle specialist at Orthopedics New England is dedicated to a multi-disciplinary approach to treating ankle injuries and conditions, including sprains, fractures, and torn Achilles tendons. Our specialized podiatrist provides the best possible individualized treatment plans, utilizing advanced nonsurgical and/or surgical methods, that will help get you back on your feet.
