Corns & callus

Corns & callus

If you have corns or callus on your foot you should seek professional advice.

Corns & callus are simply areas where the skin becomes thickened due to too much pressure. That pressure may be related to wearing the wrong type of footwear (too tight for example), forming over bony prominences (over the tops of hammertoes or bunions) or standing & walking in such a way as to place too much pressure on an area. The corn or callus can be painlessly removed but you need to determine the underlying cause to properly treat a callus or corn.

Our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic are trained to assess, diagnose & treat corns & callus. Treatment commonly used can include painless removal of the corn/callus, footwear advice, muscle/tissue stretching & strengthening, use of acupuncture, dry needling, low level & cold laser therapy, activity modification & orthotics. Please call us if you would like to speak with us about your pain.
