Understanding Heel Pain: Exploring Haglund's Deformity

Heel pain strikes yet again, and this time, it might be due to Haglund's deformity – also known as "pump bump." Picture this: a bony bump forms on the back of your heel, causing discomfort and irritation, especially when wearing shoes that rub against the area. Not exactly a walk in the park, huh?

But don't despair! Our podiatry team is here to help you navigate through the bumps – quite literally. We'll start by conducting a comprehensive evaluation to confirm the diagnosis and assess any contributing factors. From there, we'll work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs and lifestyle.

Treatment for Haglund's deformity may include:

  • Conservative measures such as padding or cushioning to alleviate pressure on the affected area

  • Footwear modifications to accommodate the bony bump

  • Orthotic devices to address underlying foot mechanics issues. In some cases, more advanced treatments such as corticosteroid injections or surgical intervention may be considered to provide lasting relief from symptoms.

So chin up – relief is on the way! Our podiatry team is dedicated to providing the compassionate care and effective treatment options you need to overcome Haglund's deformity and get back to strutting your stuff in style.
