Ankle Pain

Ankle Anatomy

The ankle is a hinge joint in which the medial malleolus (tibia) and the lateral malleolus (fibula) form a mortise into which sits the talus. 

The talus forms a hinge allowing the foot to dorsi and plantar flex between the heel strike and push off phases of walking.  

Dr. Robert Tomlinson M.D. provides expertise in the evaluation and treatment of ankle disorders in Fayetteville, Rogers, Bentonville, and the greater northwest Arkansas area. Call or email us for an appointment or question today!
