Bony prominences of the body are protected with soft tissue and fluid-filled sacs called Bursae. These sacs act as cushions near the joints between the bones and tendon/muscle insertion. Inflammation of these fluid-filled sacs is called bursitis.
In the foot, these bursae are found at the ball of the foot near the joints that the foot forms with the toes (MPJs), the base of the 5th metatarsal and the back of the heel where the achilles tendon inserts.
For our patient’s convenience, we offer foot and ankle treatments for all kinds of conditions such as Bursitis in Adrian, MI, Bursitis in Ann Arbor, MI, and Bursitis in Jackson, MI. We have our own digital x-ray, MRI, Cat-scan, and ultrasound equipment at many of our podiatry clinics. Our on-site podiatric physical therapy clinics allow for constant communication between the physicians and physical therapists, ensuring the most effective therapy and successful recovery for our patients.
