Calluses

 

The human body is amazing in its ability to protect itself from repeated pressure and stress. It is this adaptive tendency that creates calluses on the feet. Calluses are think patches of dead skin that develop when the foot is subjected to excessive friction and pressure. This skin forms a protective layer over the foot attempting to make it less vulnerable to injury. However, the callus itself may eventually become a problem if not properly managed.

Calluses are often  found on those who walk barefoot outdoors, but most often the cause is compensation for improper foot alignment. Calluses often become exceedingly rough and dry and in some cases the callus may start to crack. While smaller calluses may be unsightly, it is the rough and cracked skin that may become painful and dangerous, especially in diabetics or individuals with poor circulation.

Calluses can be easily managed with a daily routine of exfoliation and moisturizing. Of course prevention is always the most effective form of treatment. If you are experiencing calluses, take care to protect your feet and adjust your posture so your weight is distributed evenly across the entire foot. Contact us today to learn more about calluses and what you can do to manage them.
