Successful Treatment of Haglund’s Heel Deformity
A male patient, age 68, came for treatment in July 2009. He had been diagnosed with Haglund’s
heel deformity (bone enlargement on the back of the heel, often called “pump bump”). The back
of his left heel had been identified with substantial protrusion. He suffered from severe pain (8
out of 10). The patient had trouble walking and was recommended for surgery.
A combined treatment program composed of acupuncture, dietary restrictions as well as herbal
remedies was prescribed for two weeks (patient came for two visits during the first week and
then continued the treatment at home).
Upon completing the program his pain level had been significantly decreased (down to 2 out of
10). The surgery was not necessary anymore. His pain had become far more manageable.
