Corns and Calluses
Even though corns and calluses are found on the skin, they are actually caused by bone pathology, and are not soft tissue problems. The common belief that a corn has a “root” is a misnomer. Corns and calluses are adaptive responses by our bodies to compensate for pressure that is caused by bones that are either malpositioned or enlarged.
Temporary relief for painful corns and calluses is achieved by the sterile debridement (trimming) of these lesions. The permanent solution involves surgery, where the offending bone is re-aligned into proper anatomical position, and the enlarged bony prominence is removed.
