Re: retro-calcaneal bursitis?????

Retro= in back of
Calcaneal= heel bone
bursitis= inflammation of the either naturally occurring bursa or adventitious one

The shape of the back of the heel, the shoes and activity you do and tightness of the achillies tendon all play a role. The treatment of both achillies tendonits and a retrocaklcaneal bursitis can overlap. Sometimes in severe cases, surgery is indicated.

I am not sure pressing on this is a great idea, but I haven't examined you. Was this diagnosed with a MRI or sonogram?

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
