Haglund's Deformity or the "Pump Bump"
Dr. Matthew Neuhaus of Neuhaus Foot and Ankle discusses the causes and treatment options for Haglund's deformity. Haglund's Deformity is basically a bump that develops on the back of the heel, also known as the "pump bump". The deformity is nicknamed the "pump bump" because it occurs most frequently in women who wear pumps often. There are many treatments available to lessen the pain caused by the bump, but the only way to get rid of the actual deformity is surgery.
If you're suffering from the "pump bump", see a podiatrist so you can have a proper evaluation. Neuhaus Foot and Ankle has four locations in Middle Tennessee: Smyrna, Brentwood, Lebanon, and Hermitage. Contact our office for more information.
