Foot anatomy

The foot and ankle contain:

  • 26 bones (one-quarter of the bones in the human body)
  • 33 joints
  • more than 100 muscles, tendons (fibrous tissues that connect muscles to bones), and ligaments (fibrous tissues that connect bones to other bones)
  • a network of blood vessels, nerves, skin, and soft tissue
