Haglund's Deformity is Common Problem for Hockey Players


 


According to Robert Weiss, DPM, "One of the most common problems we are now seeing with hockey players in competition and ice skating is Haglund’s deformity, which is referred to as a 'retrocalcaneal spur.' This is different than a heel spur on the bottom of the heel, but both conditions must be ruled out by x-ray evaluation. This condition may also be found in the general public, most commonly with the high arch foot."

"Most important are preventative measures, starting with exercise for stretching and strengthening to gain better flexibility. The use of Aquaphor ointment on the heel under the sock to lubricate from friction is helpful. This injury can be very painful in acute stages and can become chronic, creating problems for years. It is important to rest the area and seek medical attention," says Dr. Weiss.
