Causes of Corns

Monday, 03 December 2018 00:00

Many people who experience corns on the feet may be familiar with the pain and discomfort that is often associated with them. Corns may typically develop from wearing shoes that are too tight, which may create excess pressure on the toes. Additionally, corns may develop on the soles of the feet, and this may be a result of walking or standing for extended periods of time. Certain measures can be implemented to potentially prevent corns from developing, including wearing shoes that have adequate cushioning and making sure there is enough room in the shoes for the toes to move. It’s important to properly trim the toenails and this can be a significant factor in keeping the toes properly aligned. If you believe you have developed a corn, please speak with a podiatrist to discuss the best treatment options for you.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of McKinney Podiatric Associates, PA. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
