Brief Answer:
Retrocalcaneal bursitis can be treated with tendocare

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Welcome to HCM,

I have studied your case ad I think you are having retrocalcaneal bursitis. I have following suggestions for you.

1.Hot water fomentation daily 30 minutes by keeping your feet in warm water bucket. After that stand on toes for three minutes, you can take support of table. This is calf stretching exercises, do it as many times as possible.

2.Brugel is not useful.

3.Tablet Tendocare should be taken one daily for three months. It is collagen peptide and good for tendinopathy.

4.Avoid wearing shoes as it rubs against back of heel. Wear slippers or open shoes.

5.Injection of steroid can be given but it should be given by orthopaedic doctor. As wrong injection
can damage Achilles tendon.

6. I am using PRPP also which is platelet rich plasma for local injection at heel spur.

I hope these steps will be helpful for you. Let me know if there is any other follow up questions.
thanks
