What is infracalcaneal bursitis?

Infracalcaneal bursitis is inflammation of the bursal sac under the heel bone (calcaneus); it is often a sharp pain directly under the heel. It typically occurs because the bursa is stressed or strained or is bearing increased pressure. Treatment may involve increasing cushion or physical therapy.
