Corns can be very painful. I have helped many people to successfully get rid of their corns, and made it possible for them to walk after the treatment in a proper way. Quite a few people have come to me with appalling corns. They were not able to walk and often their corns caused other foot problems! The corns are not only on the bottom part of the foot or on the toes, but also under the nails or on the top of the toe. When a callous becomes too thick it often grows inside a cone form. This is the reason that a deep corn can only be removed with surgery! It is a fable that peeling or nylon-packing can remove a corn….
At the moment it is possible to remove a (deep) corn with advanced technology which makes it possible for the client to walk again, with no pain, after the treatment.
Corns are usually caused by too narrow (too small) or shoes that pinch or squeeze, or shoes with thin soles which makes resistance too strong.
When walking on stiletto (high-heeled) shoes the weight of the body rests nearly completely on the foot, this can also result in corns!
Other reasons for corns:
- stands-contrary of the foot
- The skin ages (thinner skin, change in the joints, diabetes)
- Insufficient care of the foot
A vascular or a neurovascular corn will be treated by your Chiropodist with a salicylic packing.
The use of the gauze: “Bio-gauze” after corn treatment gives excellent results and the treated area soon recovers.
In addition, very small seed corns may be painful but they may be remedied easily.
A professional insole may solve the problems of corns. And also, a regular visit to your Chiropodist.
