“Pump Bumps” Haglund’s deformity is a bony enlargement of the back of the heel bone (calcaneus). This bony enlargement results in pain, specially when patients wear shoes.
The Achilles’ tendon attaches to the heel bone and it is often involved in the patients symptoms. The insertion point of Achilles’ tendon becomes inflamed due to irritation against shoe gear. Almost all patients also have a very tight Achilles’ tendon.
