The ankle is made up of 3 main bones; the lower end of the tibia, or shinbone, and the fibula, or outer bone of the ankle, and the talus that lies between the tibia and the fibula. Holding these structures together are the ankle ligaments that connect one bone to another. Holding the shinbone to the talus bone on the inside of the ankle is a very strong tissue called the deltoid ligament. On the outside of the ankle are 2 smaller ligaments holding the fibula to the talus bone, and 1 ligament from the talus to the calcaneus. Also not to be forgotten are the muscles that surround the ankle that help propel it and allow athletes to run and jump.

And more than 40% of that figure, get injured while playing basketball. [click to continue…]
