Retrocalcaneal (Heel) Bursitis

What is it?

A bursa is a fluid filled sack that acts as a cushion between tendons, bones, joints and muscles. The Retrocalcaneal Bursa is located on the back of the heel and acts as a lubrication layer between the Achilles Tendon and the bony heel.

Achilles Tendon Lengthening Surgery

Achilles tendon lengthening (ATL) is a surgical procedure that aims to stretch the Achilles tendon to allow a person to walk flat-footed without a bend in the knee, or to bring relief to chronic pain. This procedure elongates a contracted Achilles tendon by making small cuts on the tendons at the back of the ankle. As the wounds heal, the tendons elongate.

What to know about Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome?

Tarsal tunnel syndrome occurs when the posterior tibial nerve, which runs along the inside of the ankle and foot, becomes compressed and damaged, causing inflammation.

The condition, also known as TTS, is usually caused by continual overuse of the foot and ankle, such as occurs with strenuous or prolonged walking, running, standing, or exercising.
