The fibula is the long thin outer bone of the lower-leg
(the other bone of the lower-leg being the tibia).
The head of the fibula articulates with the tibia while the lower end
of the fibula articulates with one side of the talus.
The location of the fibula is
shown in the diagram opposite.
See the Revision page about Bones
of the Foot, Ankle, and Lower-Legs for further information
including a larger fully labelled diagram. This may be particularly interesting
study/revision material for students following courses in Reflexology
because such courses generally require a good basic knowledge of the
skeletal structures of the hands and feet.
