What is the bump on my heel?
If the abnormal bump is on the very back center of your heel, you likely have a heel spur. This calcium buildup is commonly associated with a tight Achilles tendon and develops when the tight tendon tugs on the heel bone it is anchored to. It is important to know that a help spur can also develop on the very bottom of the help and is frequently associated with another heel pain malady known as plantar fasciitis.
For an accurate diagnosis, and a customized treatment plan, be sure to come in and see one of our doctors here at Foot & Ankle Associates of Florida. While you may have either a heel spur or pump bump, we need to see you in person for an accurate diagnosis. No matter what we find, you can trust that we will strive to provide the relief you are seeking.
