Re: Haglund's Deformity

If you will do a search on Google or your favorite search engine for Haglunds deformity, there will be a good deal of information.

It is generally regarded as a bony enlargement of the posterior superior aspect of the calcaneus. This rubs against the Achilles tendon and into a shoe causing problems.

Sometimes it is referred to as a pump bump.

Treatment can include wearing shoes without a back, padding and surgery.

Hope this helps.
