Broken and Fractured Ankles
The ankle is a complex joint formed where the bones of the tibia and fibula (bones of the lower leg) meet with the talus (one of the foot bones). Each broken ankle is different since it could be on any of these three bones, or on multiple. Because your ankles bear your entire body weight, broken ankles can be one of the most rehabilitating injuries that can happen to your foot. Broken bones are also often synonymous with ankle fractures.
