Inferior Calcaneal Bursitis
(See also Overview of Foot and Ankle Disorders.)
Bursitis can develop at the inferior calcaneus, near the insertion of the plantar fascia.
Symptoms and signs of inferior calcaneal bursitis include throbbing heel pain, particularly when the shoes are removed; mild warmth; and swelling. The pain is most pronounced when the heel first contacts the ground during walking or running activity.
