retro-calcaneal bursitis?????

Hi. Is retro-calcaneal bursitis and achilles tendinits, caused by each other. I am so confused. Apparently i have both, and i've done some searching and they keep coming up together but i can't figure out why they are referred to as practically the same thing. Every site i go to says "achilles tendinits/retro-calcaneal bursitis" as if they are the exact same thing. What exactly is retro-calcaneal bursitis caused by? Also is pressing on the bursitis bad, my athletic therapist has been using manual techniques and pressing on it very hard, which is extremely painful. I never even knew i had pain in the bursa area untill she started pressing on it.
