Achilles Bursitis: Disease Bioinformatics

Achilles bursitis is a condition caused by tissue damage and inflammation of the Achilles bursa witch is a small fluid filled sac located at the back of the heel causing pain in the heel region. A bursa is a very thin fluid filled sac found throughout the body. Bursae are filled with lubricating fluid and are designed to reduce friction between tissues. They are located in regions of the body where tissue layers may rub against each other or against bone. The muscle group at the back of the lower leg is the calf. The calf is made up of two muscles the gastrocnemius and soleus both of which insert into the heel bone via the Achilles tendon. Between the Achilles tendon and skin lies a bursa known as the Achilles bursa Achilles bursitis is often caused by excessive friction on the skin overlying the Achilles tendon, such as wearing poorly fitted shoes. Activities involving repetitive calf contractions, such as walking or running, can also contribute to the development. People with Achilles bursitis typically have pain in the back of their ankle or heel while doing activities such as walking going up and down stairs, running, jumping or hopping. Often pain may be worse with rest after these activities wearing either loose or excessively tight shoes that have contact with the Achilles bursa may also cause pain.
