Corns

Overview:

Corns are a build up of thickened skin that are formed because of excessive pressure and repeated rubbing of the toes. The hard corn is the most common type and found on the tops and tips of toes and the sides of the feet. Soft corns are usually found between the toes. Pain is caused by repeated friction.

Causes:

  • Wearing improper fitting footwear (tight fitting shoes in toe area)

  • Deformed toes

Treatments:

Along with wearing wider and proper footwear:

  • Massaging Insoles redistribute the weight evenly across the foot, eliminating any friction or excessive pressure on the feet. The glycerin fluid cuts the friction forces and absorbs the shock. This alleviates the pain and allows the corns to heal.
