Haglund’s Deformity (also known as pump bump or retrocalcaneal bursitis) is a painful enlargement on the back of the heel bone that becomes irritated by shoes. It normally appears as a red, painful, and swollen area in the back of the heel bone. Women tend to develop the condition more than men because of irritation from rigid heel counters in shoes that rub up and down on the back of the heel bone.

Changing shoes, soaking feet, and anti-inflammatory medications often mitigate the symptoms of this problem. Note: Please consult your physician before taking any medications.

TESTIMONIAL

Dr. Smith has been treating me for the last three years and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with any type of foot problem. He works and talks fast but he will always take the time to answer any questions and be sure you understand your condition and your treatment. The staff is competent, knowledgable and friendly.
