Bursal injury : This is a type of injury that affects a specialized sac of fluid called a bursa. We have many all over our body, in the ankle they can occur in front of or behind the achilles tendon. They can also form in response to pressure to serve as a buffer against irritation. When injured they can be painful and inflamed feeling much like a deep bruise.
