What Is Ankle Stabilization and Support?

The ankle joint distributes weight within the foot to allow for mobility. Three bones make up the joint (tibia, fibula, and talus) and are responsible for allowing the foot to move up and down. The two categories of ligaments in the ankle (lateral and medial collateral) work with the three bones to stabilize and support the ankle joint where the muscles and tendons help create movement, such as walking, running, and jumping.

Sprains and fractures are the common ankle problems that Wisconsin Bone and Joint physicians treat. A sprain is an injury to the ligaments, whereas a fracture is a break in the bone. These conditions are commonly caused by sports-related injuries, but occupation, age, and lifestyle could be causes as well.

Wisconsin Bone and Joint provides nonsurgical and surgical treatment options for injuries and conditions of the ankle. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons believe in exhausting nonoperative options before considering surgery.
