What Is the Function of the Tibia?

Answer

The tibia is also known as the shin bone. It is the larger of the two bones in the lower leg. It bears much of the body's weight and is essential for movement. In men, the tibia runs relatively vertical. In women, the tibia runs more slanted to help accommodate the wider hips of a female. The tibia is the second largest bone in the human skeleton.
