Corns and Callus
Corns and callus are conditions described by thickening or hardening of the skin. Most times, corns and callus are caused by an increased amount of pressure to a specific area of the foot. This can be the result of poor fitting footwear, abnormal foot function, bony prominences, among many other things. Both corns and callus can cause pain.
A Registered Chiropodist has the technical skill to remove and reduce these lesions. Often, offloading the area through padding or other methods will be incorporated into the management plan.
