Medical Considerations for Haglund’s Deformity
Haglund's deformity is not usually a serious condition; however, it can produce substantial pain. When less invasive treatments are not successful, surgery may be an option. Always check with your doctor or foot health professional to determine the best treatment options, and always talk to your doctor if you have soreness, pain, redness, swelling or other indications of foot problems that persist for more than a few days.
