Wearing shoes is an important part of keeping your feet healthy. However, sometimes the type of shoes you wear can create problems. This is important to remember as you buy shoes for your foot type.

Haglund’s deformity is one of those conditions that can cause issues. The deformity is a bony enlargement on the back of your heel. It creates pain for you when the bursa, which is the fluid-filled sac between your tendon and bone, becomes inflamed. Inflammation happens because the bony bump rubs repeatedly against the heel of your shoe. The area it affects is the soft tissue near the Achilles tendon.

Many times this condition happens in women. You may recognize the name “pump bump” which is specific to women wearing pump style shoes. When women wear high heels, the bony bump can become irritated after it rubs against the rigid backs of high heels.

However, wearing heels is not the only way to get Haglund’s deformity. Sometimes your foot structure will play a role in its formation. If you have Haglund’s deformity you can experience it on one or both of your feet. You will notice a bump on the back of your heel, pain, swelling and redness. You can help reduce these symptoms by wearing correct footwear.

Dr. Marco Vargas, of Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists, has experience in treating Haglund’s deformity and can offer many treatment options. Some options may include medication, orthotics, heel pads or physical therapy.
If you are struggling from pain with Haglund’s deformity, call our office to schedule an appointment. Dr. Vargas and his team of podiatrists in the Greater Houston area can provide the best treatment for your foot condition.
