Common Foot Problems

Corns and Callus (Hard Skin)

The development of corns and hard skin (callus) on your feet is often a sign that your foot mechanics are not functining as well as they should be.When areas of high pressure develop on the soles of your feet it causes friction, shear and pressure to the skin ad underlying soft tissues which result in the protective development of thickened skin. As the skin becomes thicker it presses on the nerves in your skin which is why corns and callus can become painful. Cooper and Lourie Family Podiatry offer a variety of services to reduce the discomfort from hard skin and corns and slow their recurrance. These services include:

  • Corn and hard skin removal
  • Orthoses to restore optimal foot function
