Did you know the average person walks about 100,000 miles in a lifetime? Just think of the wear and tear on your feet and ankles. When you injure your feet and ankles, you may experience:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Instability (your feet and ankles cannot support you)
  • Stiffness
  • Hear a popping or snapping sound
  • Numbness

The stability of the ankle joint is dependent upon the ability of the tibia, the large leg bone, and the fibula, the smaller bone on the outside of the ankle, to keep the ankle’s central bone, the talus, in place while the ankle moves backwards and forwards.
