plantar bursitis: often overlooked

A bursa is a fluid-filled sack which functions as a buffer between ligament and bone. Without a bursa, rubbing friction against the bone's surface would break down the ligament, causing injury.


If too much pressure and friction occurs on the bursa it becomes irritated and swells; the pressure from inflammation results in pain.

NOTE: If the plantar fascia ligament is swollen at the heel it can place added pressure on the bursa - this may cause plantar bursitis.

The difference between fasciitis and bursitis pain is bursitis has a mild, added burning sensation...

The worst thing for bursitis: Cortisone injection - usually after the condition has been around a long time because the causes were never addressed.

The FootMedic Kit shows how to address cause(s), and get resolution. The common approach is icing to mitigate inflammation. Relief is only temporary and the condition is aggravated by icing.
