The Tibia is also known as the "shin bone" and is
the inner and larger one of the lower-leg (the other bone of the lower-leg
being the fibula).
The tibia articulates with the femur (above), the ankle
and the fibula (at the ends - see diagram).
The location of the tibia 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.
