Haglund's Deformity, or the "pump bump", is a bony enlargement on the back of the heel that is most commonly diagnosed in young women who wear pumps or heels. The "pump bump" is called this because of the pressure from the rigid backs of the heels aggravates the enlargement when walking  This type of deformity that most often leads to painful bursitis, which is an inflammation of the bursa (a fluid-filled sac between the tendon and bone). In Haglund's deformity, the soft tissue near the Achilles tendon becomes irritated when the bony enlargement rubs against shoes.

Dr. Matthew Neuhaus explains the various causes and treatment options for the bump on the back of your heel for Haglund's Deformity. Dr Neuhaus and Dr Knox of Neuhaus Foot & Ankle have two offices outside the Nashville, TN area in Smyrna, TN and Brentwood, TN.
