The phalange nearest the body of the hand or foot is call the "proximal" phalange; the one at the end of each digit is the "distal" phalange; and, of course, when there are three, the middle one is called the "middle" phalange. Ligaments of The Foot The instep is made up of five, elongated metatarsal bones that join the tarsus (the seven ankle bones). The distant heads of these bones form the ball of the foot. The tarsals and metatarsals are arranged and bound by ligaments to form the arches of the foot. A "tarsometataral ligament" joins the tarsus to the metatarsal bone.
