IL PODIATRIST DISCUSSES HEEL BURSITIS

ILLINOIS PODIATRIST, DR. MARLENE REID STATES, "IF YOU HAVE BURSITIS, IT OFTEN FEELS LIKE A BUMP, USUALLY ON THE BACK OF THE HEEL.  THIS CONDITION OCCURS WHEN YOU HAVE A GENETICALLY ENLARGED HEEL BONE.  IT'S OFTEN CALLED 'PUMP BUMP' BECAUSE THE BONE CAN BECOME IRRITATED FROM WEARING A SHOE LIKE A PUMP WITH A STIFF BACK.  WHEN THE UNFORGIVING SHOE RUBS AGAINST THE BONE, YOU CAN INFLAME THE BURSA, THE PROTECTIVE SAC OF FLUID IN THE TISSUE.  IF THE PROBLEM CAUSES CHRONIC PAIN, IN EXTREME CASES THE BURSA MAY HAVE TO BE REMOVED."

WE TREAT MANY CASES OF HEEL BURSITIS AT OUR FOOT CLINIC.  WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD GREAT SUCCESS WITH CONSERVATIVE CARE AND NO PATIENT OF OURS HAS HAD TO HAVE SURGERY FOR THIS CONDITION.
