If you have pain in a corn, even when you do not have shoes on, you have most likely developed bursitis which is inflammation of the joint under the corn. Bursitis is often treated with an injection of anti-inflammatory into the inflamed area. Another effective alternative is to give you feet a good long soak in a basin full of warm water with a cupful of apple cider vinegar. Then do some gentle scrubbing using a pumice stone to rid your feet of all that dead skin. By reducing pressure on the affected area, corns and calluses can be prevented to re-arise. Plantar Fasciitis, heel pain and heel spurs are best treated with simple, non-surgical methods. However, the longer the heel pain has been present, the longer it takes to fix. Heel pain is best treated by doing some simple stretching exercises, combined with wearing foot orthotics. This way the tension on the Plantar Fascia is being released, treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptom. 2) Arch Pain Treatment of Achilles Tendontis includes rest (or reduced activity), calf stretching and ice packs. Orthotics are recommended to support the arches, thereby reducing the stress on the achilles tendon. 4) Ball of Foot Pain (Metatarsalgia) Corns and calluses are NOT soft tissue problems and there is no "root" to be removed. No matter how much they are cut down or debrided, they will return. Painful corns and calluses are the result of abnormal position of the underlying bone. Often hammertoes become painful because a bursal sac will develop between the bone and corn or callus. The bursal sac can be treated with injections and anti-inflammatory medications. If this relieves the symptoms then surgery can be delayed. If these treatments fail, then structural correction of the hammertoe is recommended by your physician. For women's fashion and high heel shoes we recommend Footlogics Catwalk - a thin and flexible footbed that supports the arch, as well as the metatarsal bones. This way, bodyweight is distributed more evenly over the entire foot with less pressure and friction in the ball of the foot. For men's shoes there's Footlogics Comfort which also features a metatarsal support and at the same time controls over-pronation, a major contributing factor to Metartarsalgia. - Bunions (Hallux Valgus Abducto) Discover How to Eliminate Plantar Fasciitis and Foot Pain In As Little As 72 Hours and Cure It Completely Within 30 Days GUARANTEED! A bunion as a bony abnormality of the big toe joint. The joint becomes misaligned with the foot's skeletal structure so that the toe joint points outward. Signs that a bunion is forming include a bulging bump on the outside of the big toe, soreness and pain. The skin around the toe is thicker, and calluses can appear where the toe overlaps the second toe. There are several things to consider when caring for bunions. Surgery may not help how your foot looks, and your toe problem may also come back after surgery. This is more likely if you continue to wear the types of shoes that cause toe problems.
