You slip on your favorite heels. They suddenly feel tight or uncomfortable. You reach to the back of your pumps and notice a new bump on your heel. And you wonder…

What is that bump on the back of my heel? Why is it there and how can I get rid of it?

Well, in our Houston podiatry practice, we often see women with bumps on the backs of their heels. In fact, it happens a lot. That's why we talk about them as ‘pump bumps.’ But men can also develop this condition. Which is medically referred to as a Haglund’s deformity.

Luckily, we can treat this condition in our podiatry office. But early intervention is important. Because that's how we prevent your Haglund’s deformity from growing larger. So give us a call for an immediate appointment. And keep reading to learn more about this common foot condition.
