Foot & Ankle
The ankle consists of two joints: the subtalar joint, and the true ankle joint.
The true ankle joint is composed of 3 bones, the tibia which forms the inside or medial side of the ankle; the fibula which forms the lateral, or outside of the ankle; and the talus below.

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation to the thick band of tissue at the bottom of the foot, known as the plantar fascia. Plantar fasciitis often results from overuse and is especially common in athletes due to repetitive strains to the tissue. Over time, the fascia becomes inflamed due to repeat tearing and stretching. Other risk factors for Plantar Fasciitis include having a high arch in the foot, obesity and tight calf muscles.
