Calluses are usually found on the bottom of the foot or on the heel since they take most of the pressure produced during walking or running. Because calluses are dense, there may be additional stress created on the skin.
Bunions typically start forming on the joint of the big toe and then become large due to repetitive pressure that is placed on the big toes from wearing poorly fitting shoes or other causes of friction.
Laser treatment can clear the infected nail and do so without the discomfort associated with other procedures. It works by using light rays that are directed at the nail to penetrate it and thereafter destroy any fungus.
Custom orthotics are where the real relief comes from. They provide support for the arch, help to spread your weight consistently along the foot, and reduce the amount of pressure that’s applied to your feet on a daily basis.
Characterized by an unnatural bend in the toe joint, hammertoes can cause many inconveniences with shoe fitting and normal mobility. Over time, the toes can become rigid and have permanently flexed toes.
Gout often affects the big toe joint and can plague other parts of the foot. Obesity and diet can increase your risk of gout because the body makes more uric acid, often as a result of foods with high sugar and purine content, including alcoholic drinks.
Toenail fungus flourishes under toenails due to the overwhelming dampness and humidity that develops in shoes and socks. The fungus that causes this condition can have a foul odor, cause toenails to turn yellow, and become brittle in the process.
Toe fractures can occur from a severe traumatic force that may cause the toe to bend in such a manner where it breaks. The resulting pain can be severe depending on the nature of the fracture. Managing this condition with due care will allow for less pain and a speedy recovery.
