The Back to School Splash Bash is this Saturday August 2nd beginning at 11:00 AM in the Town Square. This will be a fun-filled day complete with water slides and dancing. Don’t let your footwear ruin your fun. Choosing the right shoes for a foot problem such as Haglund’s deformity is crucial to enjoying yourself and staying pain-free.

Woman with High Heels

Haglund’s deformity is when a bony prominence occurs on the back of the heel bone. Many women who wear high heels suffer from this condition because of the nature of their shoes. As a result this condition also goes by the name “pump bump”. If you have such a bump on your heel accompanied by pain, you might have Haglund’s deformity. Treatment can include using heel pads to relieve some of the pressure, immobilizing the foot with a boot to help it heal, wearing a custom-made orthotic, and taking any medication we recommend to help with inflammation.

The best treatment, and preventative measure, is to change your footwear. The shoes you wear have a tremendous impact on the health of your feet. A pair that has padding in the heel area is good for avoiding this foot deformity. It’s also good to have good arch support, because of the control it offers. Keeping your feet in place is crucial to avoiding pump bump, so picking a shoe with an adjustable strap or shoelaces is also recommended. You want to make sure to avoid shoes that have very rigid heels, to keep your heels from rubbing up against them, because that is what leads to pump bumps.

If you have questions about treating your foot deformity or choosing a better pair of shoes, call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at (281) 313-0090 to schedule an appointment at Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists in Sugar Land, TX.
