Retrocalcaneal Bursitis

Retrocalcaneal bursitis is a condition where the fluid sac between your Achilles tendon and your heal bone, known as the calcaneus, becomes compressed and inflamed between the 2 surfaces. A bursa is a lubricating sac of fluid that prevents friction between two surfaces, but if there is too much pressure on it then it will become inflamed.

The inflammation becomes present to try to remodel the bursa to withstand this extra pressure, however, this can create even more pressure which leads to pain, discomfort and potential limitations in movement.

The key to successful treatment is to decrease this pressure by reducing tension through the tissues and giving the bursa the time it needs to remodel itself. The Heal My Injury Treatment Plan is designed to decrease the inflammation and relieve tension over the bursa.
