Bursitis retrocalcánea

La bursitis retrocalcánea es una inflamación de la bursa ubicada detrás del hueso del talón. La bursa es un saco lleno de líquido que actúa como un cojín y lubricante entre los tendones y músculos que se deslizan sobre el hueso. El uso excesivo o repetitivo del tobillo al caminar, correr o saltar en exceso, puede causar que esta bolsa se irrite e inflame. Los síntomas de bursitis pueden ser dolor en el talón, especialmente al caminar, correr o al tocar el área del tobillo.Bursitis retrocalcánea
