Goosefoot Bursitis

Inflammation of the pes anserine bursa between the tibia and the hamstrings’ three tendons which splay out in front of the tibia, fancifully likened to the foot of a goose
Risk factors Overuse, friction and stress on the bursa, especially in runners; attributed to poor training techniques—i.e., no stretching, excessive hill running and sudden increases in mileage, tight hamstrings, obesity, out-turning of the knee or lower leg, and osteoarthritis in knee.Imaging is needed to exclude a fracture
Management Rest, stop activity or substitute a different one until bursitis clears, ice, NSAIDs, aspirin, ibuprofen, local anaesthetics; steroid injections in the bursa
