If you are suffering from Haglund?s deformity you will most likely have noticed a bony enlargement at the back of the heel. This condition is caused by a combination of genetic and external factors and can lead to discomfort and even pain in the back of the heel. The inflammation is caused when the soft tissue around the Achilles tendon becomes irritated. This irritation is often resulting of pressure caused by the back of pump-style shoes. Other signs include pain in the back of the heel, redness or inflamed tissue at the site of the swelling. Treatment options include anti-inflammatory medication, icing, stretching, heel lifts, pads, shoe modification or surgery
