Corns and calluses are two of the most common forms of foot pain diagnosed by podiatrists in Australia, and can have a severe impact on a person’s quality of life. A round shaped callus of dead skin that can occur almost anywhere on the foot, corns typically form when there is too much pressure or friction on the skin.
They can also be caused by deformities in the feet with toes rubbing against each other, shoes that are too small, too big or too shallow, and also our biomechanics, the way our joints and muscles work together when we walk.
At Pride Podiatry, we can provide immediate relief from painful corns and callus with expert care. Where possible, we will also work with you to determine the cause of the corn and prevent it’s recurrence via a tailored management plan.
We’re often taught that corns are unavoidable and are a natural product of aging, but the reality is that is not the case! At Pride Podiatry we can not only help by removing corns and repairing your feet, but we can also prevent corns from reforming.
