Experience In-depth and Detailed Care
Do you have redness around an inflamed tissue in your foot? Do you have pain in the Achilles tendon area? As a bony enlargement, Haglund's deformity found on the back of the heel leads most often to a painful condition called bursitis. Known popularly as the 'pump bump', Haglund's deformity is caused by the bony enlargement rubbing against the shoe resulting in the soft tissue becoming inflamed near the Achilles tendon. The hard back of the pump shoes worn by women or high heels results in this deformity and causes discomfort to the wearer. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California are experts and render care with in-depth and detailed follow up, precise diagnosis to see that their patients lead normal lifestyles with comfort and relief from any problems related to the foot.

With Haglund's deformity affecting either one or both the feet, the signs and symptoms display pain at the point where the Achilles tendon is attached to the heel. Patients with this problem will experience a swelling at the back of the heel, redness in the affected area, and a bump that can be noticed at the back of the heel. In some of the patients, this condition can be inherited or even high arches and a tight Achilles tendon can lead to Haglund's deformity.
