The human body is amazing in its ability to protect itself from repeated pressure and stress. It is this adaptive tendency that creates calluses on the feet. Calluses are think patches of skin that develop when the foot is subjected to excessive friction and pressure. This skin forms a protective layer over the foot to make it less vulnerable to injury. However, the callus itself may eventually become a problem if not properly managed.

Often calluses are found on those who may spend a lot of time walking barefoot outdoors. Calluses can also form to compensate for improper foot alignment. They can become exceedingly rough and dry and in some cases the callus may start to crack. While smaller calluses may be unsightly, it is the rough and cracked skin that may become painful.

Calluses may often be easily managed with a daily routine of exfoliation and moisturizing. There are many products available to make your foot care easier, such as foot soaks, pumice stones and files. The photos to the right contain links with examples of Pedicure and Spa products used in daily Callus and Corn care.  Skin care creams & lotions are also important for the continued health and care of your feet.  

 For those with severe or recurring problems, daily care or the occasional pedicure may not be enough.  Prevention is always the most effective form of treatment, so if you are experiencing excess or problem calluses, take a moment to consult a Podiatrist for a biomechanical exam and foot wear evaluation. Inserts or Custom Orthotics may be indicated to adjust your posture so your weight is distributed evenly across the entire foot. Contact us today to learn more about calluses and what you can do to manage them.
