Combined, the human foot and ankle contains more than 26 bones and 40 joints, and the average person takes 10,000 steps per day. The ankle is a highly intricate structure that works in unison with the foot to help support our body weight, allow us to stand, walk or run, and move and flex in a variety of ways. When the ankle is injured, it often requires highly specialized treatment to restore maximum function and movement.
