What is Foot Bursitis?

Description of the Disease

Bursitis of the foot is an inflammatory condition characterized by the involvement of synovial bursae in the foot area. Synovial bursae are cavities filled with synovial fluid that serve to reduce friction between tendons and bones. In the case of bursitis, these bursae become inflamed and fill with fluid, causing painful sensations and swelling.


  • Bursitis of the anterior part of the foot
  • Bursitis of the posterior part of the foot
  • Bursitis of the lateral part of the foot


Symptoms of foot bursitis include pain, swelling, redness, and warmth in the affected synovial bursa area. Limited movement and tenderness when touched may also be observed.


Bursitis of the foot can result from injury, overuse, infection, or mechanical pressure on the synovial bursae.


Diagnosis of foot bursitis involves a doctor's examination, palpation of the affected area, X-rays, and other instrumental methods of investigation.


Treatment of foot bursitis aims to reduce inflammation, pain, and swelling. This may include taking anti-inflammatory drugs, physiotherapy, painkillers, and, in some cases, surgical intervention.


To prevent foot bursitis, it is recommended to avoid overloads, wear comfortable and properly fitting shoes, and seek medical attention at the first signs of the disease.


In case of symptoms of foot bursitis, it is necessary to consult an orthopedic surgeon or traumatologist.
