Retrocalcaneal bursitis

Posted on May 9, 2010


Yeap… That is what I have been suffering from for the past few years. I had thought it was due to heavy heel striking but it isn’t. I’ve been consistently landing on my mid-foot now.

From what I’ve been reading on the internet, it is the shoes!!! The back of my left heel bone (calcaneus) is slightly bigger than my right. And due to the tightness caused by my running shoes, my left heel is always swelling and red.

Hopefully longer and more purposeful warm-ups will alleviate the problem.
