Retrocalcaneal Bursitis

Retrocalcaneal bursitis is a chronic condition that causes pain and irritation in the heel and ankle area of the foot. The retrocalcaneal bursa, a small cushion sac between the heel bone and the Achilles tendon is inflamed due to overuse or repetitive movement. Treatment includes rest, anti-inflammatory medication, stretching, massage, and strengthening exercises. A physician may also recommend changing footwear, special inserts, injections, and casting.
