A pump bump or a Haglunds deformity. What is causing the large bony lump on the backs of my heels

Docpods Support - Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Women often complain about a large bony growth on the backs of their heels that is caused from wearing high heeled shoes. This bony outgrowth is caused when the foot is not supported correctly, often from wearing inappropriate footwear and then the heel is allowed to roll in.

If you look closely at where the bony lump is formed, it is often on the outside of the Achilles tendon where it attaches onto the heel. This location is very important because when your foot is not supported correctly, your foot is allowed to roll in which causes an excessive traction in the calf and where the Achilles tendon attaches into the heel. This extra pressure causes a bony growth or a reinforcing of the bone in the area where it attaches into the heel, and over time, this will become quite a large lump on the heel.
