Symptoms of Heel Bursitis
Typically your symptoms include inflammation, tenderness, swelling and pain, this pain tends to be worse during activity or when wearing tight or ill-fitting shoes. Pain from bursitis will generally be localised to the back or underside of the heel.
Causes of Heel Bursitis
Bursitis is the result of overuse, stress or damage to the lubricating sac known as the bursa. The bursa, lying between the Achilles tendon and the bone, functions as a protective cushion but through overuse or damage, it becomes traumatized and inflamed.
