Ankle Joint Dysfunction

The ankle joint is composed of several bones and three joints, joining the bones of the lower leg to the foot.


  • Talotibial Joint: The talotibial joint connects the tibia with the talus bone of the foot. Talotibial dysfunction is the term used to describe a number of injuries that affect the function of the talotibial joint.  These include traumatic, biomechanical, hormonal, inflammatory or degenerative joint disease.  These injuries may cause hypomobility (less movement) or hypermobility (more movement).  This altered function can cause further problems with the surrounding joints, muscles and ligaments resulting in pain in and around the ankle and a reduced range of motion.

  • Navicular and Cuboid articulations: The navicular and cuboid are bones in the mid region of the foot.

  • Cuneiform articulations: The cuneiform bones are three bones between the navicular-cuboid bones and the metatarsals.
