HEEL BONE BURSITIS (INFLAMMATION OF THE BURSA UNDER THE HEEL BONE)

WHAT IS A BURSA?

Between the heel bone and fat pad there is a small sack of fluid called a bursa. If this bursa becomes inflamed through over use then pain will result.
The solution is rest. Padding with a hole for the bursa to fit in can be made. If this injury goes on for a long time some Doctors might give a steroid injection.
