Abstract

This article describes the anatomical and biomechanical principles necessary for the development of an ankle injury prevention program. The structures of the talocrural joint and the subtalar joint are discussed in detail. The biomechanics of these two joints are discussed and their relationship elucidated. The ligamentous structures of the ankle are discussed in detail. Evaluation of the ankle is discussed in conjunction with mechanisms of athletic injuries. Pertinent principles necessary for the development of an injury prevention program for the ankle are presented.
