Easy Foot Callus Treatment For All Day Comfort

Easy Foot Callus Treatment Tips You Can DO To Achieve All Day Comfort?

Unknown-3

This Foot Callus Treatment advice will help you define what type of corn you may have on your toes.

I would say that 85% of my patients call me initially because they need  corn removal is a big part of my business and keeps me busy.   Corns on toe pictures show how corns have common spots that they appear on the toes and are either hard or soft callouses.

I know from first hand experience how painful a corn can be and without the correct support and protection these hard callus on foot formations can have you crippled up in pain by the end of the day.

The Definition of a corn is : Thickened Skin caused by
friction and pressure.

Small circle in appearance hard skin i remember when i got a small corn on my little toe because i wore a new pair of boots which were a little tight and as i walked my foot rubbed into the boot and within 2 hours my toe was killing me i took the shoe off and the toe was red and inflamed and i could see a pin head corn. Me being me i carry micropore with me so i wrapped the toe up the best i could to get me through my night out.

The 4 Most Common Callus On Foot Pictures

1: On the tips of the little toes

I believe the worst types of shoes which cause corns
High Heels
Ankle Boots
Steel Capped Boots
Flip Flops

But at the end of the day any shoe new or old can form a corn if the shoe is too tight or too loose if friction and pressure occur so will a corn.

Symptoms of corns

Soft corns appear in between the toes and are very tricky to get rid of and can be painful.  These soft corns form when the toes are being cramped together by a pair of shoes and they are being squashed on top of each other. High heeled shoes or pixie toed shoes are normally the culprits for these corns especially if you wear these shoes for long periods of time.

Corns that form on the tip of the toes i personally believe are the worst types of corns. When your toes begin to claw over or arthritis begins the toes natural position changes so as you walk your toe tips are gripping the sole of the shoe and pressure and friction causes the tips which are not weight baring to form corns on the distal (tip ) of the phalanges bone.

If you suffer from a bunion (hallux valgus)  it is very common the get a corn on the bunion joint on the side and underneath the base of the metatarsal bone.  Normally a bunion causes the 2nd toe to form a “Hammer toe” which is due to the big toe pushing towards the lesser toes and the second toe become bent and clawed.  Hard corns form on the top of the second knuckle joint because the toe is raised in footwear and it rubs with each step. Very painful and usually impossible to cure totally.

5 Podiatry Tips for all day comfort

  • Be sensible wear comfortable shoes
  • Compeed plasters
  • Corn Wraps
  • Petroleum jelly (Vasaline)
  • Chiropody wool

 Sensible Shoes For Callus on Foot Problems

I know  who wants to be sensible, but if you squeeze your feet into a tight pair or mis shaped shoes for your feet corns will definitely occur. Pixie or pointed shoes will cause corns on the little toe and between toes to form.  High heels shoes will force the toes into the box area of the shoe and can form corns on the knuckles or tips of the toes.

Compeed plasters

corn of foot removal compeed

I love compeed plasters and they have a range for toes and corns and also blisters on heels.  Compeed plasters are a strong gel Hydrocolloidal plaster.
The range for bunions in my opinion aren’t as successful as they do not sit in the right place and fall off easily where the normal plaster style ones will stick in place and hang on for days if not weeks!. They are super soft and adhesive and for many patients a perfect product to prevent friction and pressure and stop callous and corns forming on their toes.

Hydrocolloidal plaster contains croscarmellose sodium (an internally cross-linked sodium carboxymethylcellulose,[27] water-soluble polymer), as well as gelatin[27]and tackifier resins.[28] Top level of plaster is made of elastomer (that ensures that the plaster stays on skin even while moving) and polyurethane film.[29]

When applied to the blister, it starts to absorb body liquids turning into a soft mass that cushions the blister. It seals the blister forming so-called “second skin”. The plaster doesn’t heal the wound. It prevents the blister from developing and helps new skin to grow underneath the plaster.

Cushioned zone created by the plaster relieves pain and protects the wound from rubbing. The plaster repels water, and stops dirt and germs from entering the wound, thus preventing infection.

At first the plaster absorbs all the moisture from the blister but over time it becomes more permeable so the wound dries out.[27] Unlike ordinary dressingshydrocolloidal plaster stays on the wound for several days and it stays on even in the shower.

How to use Compeed corn removal plasters

When i use compeed plasters on my patients for corns i get the patient to leave one plaster on for 3-5 days and then remove the plaster and reapply another if necessary.  When you pull the plaster of the adhesive plaster pulls out the corn and its corn leaving the skin smooth.

 A 6 pack costs £4/$7 very reasonable i believe.

Corn Wraps / Corn Sleeves

corn on foot removalPodiatry toe protectors which slide over toes to prevent friction and pressure.  The wraps are made of silicone medical gel and are covered by a mesh fabric which acts as a barrier between the shoes and the toes.

Corn wraps come in two sizes large and medium , the large would be for the big toe only.

The silicone gel part of the support sits on the skin and over the corn,  like compeed plasters these will precent friction and burning and prevent corns forming.  A great choice for hammer toes and soft corns in-between your toes.  These wraps often fall off the little toe and are harder to keep on but with socks or tights they are held well in place and a great tool to prevent corns on toes.

£2/$5 for a pack of two.

 

Vaseline  / Petroleum Jelly

Corns and callous on heels can be treated using vaseline , this deep greasy Unknownointment penetrates the hard rough skin and softens and naturally exfoliates corns and callous.  Try applying to your feet at night and wear a pair of cotton socks the heat generated fastens the process of softening and will leave the feet smooth and well hydrated.

Chiropody / Animal / Lambs Wool

A very old fashioned Chiropody method to solve corns and callous of the toes is chiropody wool. lambs wool is 100% wool so not good if you have a lanolin Unknown-1irritation.  It comes in a 25g roll and lasts ages. You cut a piece of the animal wool and wrap it around the toe and its corn or place in the shoes box area to protect the tips of the toes.  Animal wool prevents friction because it is coarse.  And although quite fluffy to begin with the wool will mould to your toes position and matt and can be reused.  Dancers have been using lambs wool for decades especially in ballet shoes as the tips of the toes have a lot of pressure applied to them and blisters and corns can form.
I use it on patients with bunions and hammer toes and it separates the two toes from rubbing together and stops and pain pressure and corns.
This is still one of my preferred corn on the foot removal techniques i use if my patients do not have a lanolin irritation or have trouble bending down to their feet.

Pack of Animal wool starts at £3.99/ $7 for 100g

I hope i have shared some valuable advice and information so you can prevent and cure corns and blisters on your feet.  Being sensible is really the major take away here. If you do get a corn make sure you change your foot wear whilst you are healing the corn and use a treatment that suits you.  You have several choices corn wrap, animal wool or using vaseline over night. Once the corn has gone the pain will go too.

Why you must buy Barefoot Science Insoles

buy barefoot science insoles

Why you must buy Barefoot Science Insoles….. Invest in your health.

Do you suffer from pain?   Each step is a struggle?

In this blog i will share with you the success i have been seeing with my patients wearing Barefoot Science Insoles and how this insole will change your life.

With over 20years professional experience working with athletes and sports persons Barefoot-Science is now available to everyone !  If you can walk! and have pain , these insoles are for you.

Unlike traditional orthotic insoles the science behind this design is all about strengthening the foots joints and muscles over time so the foot is repaired and injury free 100%.

These are not a quick insole they are specifically designed to cure long term pains at the injury site and build up the foots muscles to prevent any further pain or injury.

Regain a life without pain…. Take action and strengthen your core foot muscles and prevent further injuries.

How Traditional Orthotics work

Traditional orthotic insoles and over the counter supports do not solve  long term foot health problems.

They can be great for a quick fix to foot or knee pain but were designed to support and cushion the foot only.

They do not correct or repair the problem permanently and can actually cause further damage and prevent the foot from healing naturally.

The foot and ankle has 26 bones 33 joints and over 100 tendon and ligaments joining and  together to create one amazing structure .
The foot allows enables movement and strength to the rest of the body.

The idea behind Barefoot Science Insoles is simple…  Strengthen and Repair.

Strengthen the muscles, joints, ligaments, tissues/ Repair the root problem =  Strong healthy balance foot….. and no insole is required. 

Just some of the conditions i why my patients buy Barefoot Science Insoles for include:

Flat Feet/Over pronation
Heel pain/ Plantar Fasciits/Heel Spurs
Achilles tendon/ Shin splints
Bunions/ Hammer toes
Ankle pain/Inflammation/Swelling
Knee/Hip/Back Pain
Arthritis/Diabetic neuropathy pain.

Imagine having a personal physiotherapist at £80 an hour working on your feet making sure the foots biomechanics are running at 100% precision with each step you take.

The majority of pain to the foot and ankle and knees are caused by the footwear we choose to wear, which prevents natural flexible movement.

For example a steel capped boot for a security guard! Over time the lack of flexibility that these rigid shoe causes will allow muscle waste and weak ligaments which will make your foot weak and open to damage and injuries.

And not only your foot becomes weak but your legs your back and spinal cord.!

80% of people will complain of foot/knee/back pain in their work place because of the shoes they have to wear for work.  Inflexible / stiff/  Uncomfortable footwear which is worn for 10+ hours a day.

People like nurse, hairdressers,office workers, security guards,postal workers, bar tenders, teachers, shop assistants.

Your feet are being restricted and prevented from their natural position. Feet need motion to work thats what they are designed to do and over time your body will fail you if you prevent the natural movement and you will suffer from foot pain and chronic back pain.

8 out of 10 americans suffer from gait problems that cause back/knee/leg and foot pain.
How do Barefoot Science insoles work?

I know i keep going on about strengthening but that is how Barefoot Science insole work.  Its a foot strengthening system for the arches.

  • Barefoot Science insoles align your foots muscles/ligaments/joints to their natural position.
  • Makes them strong and restores them back to their natural position.
  • Allows for correct movement, just like walking Barefoot through sand they create a natural movement.

When you buy Barefoot Science insoles they come with a multi-level-strengthening system.

Normally 1-5 levels (7 for their therapeutic range) , These tabs are place in the arch area of the orthotic over time you change them.

As your foot gains strength you increase the level.
Generally its takes 7-10 days between changing levels but your foot will tell you when its ready ,

it does this by the way your foot feels in the insole you no longer are aware of the tab so this is the indicator that you need to go up a  step.buy barefoot science insoles

And its not just your feet that will benefit , your feet are your foundation and having a strong foundation will keep your body strong including your knees/hips/back/shoulders/neck meaning less time off work, at the physiotherapist and most importantly pain free.

Test your feet! : Quick balance check on your foot muscle strengths:
  1. Stand upright with and slowly raise one leg off the ground whilst looking ahead.
  2. Slowly close your eyes for a few seconds.
  3. Take a deep breath and relax your body and open your eyes.
  4. If balancing on one foot with your eyes closed was tricky then this may prove your foot does suffer from muscle weakness or have an injury.

If you are unable to stand on one foot for less than 20 seconds without wobbling and falling theres a good chance you may have muscle weakness or an injury.   Keep improving at the exercise its great for your brain cells.

The aim is to manage 60 seconds or more then you will have fantastic balance!, and also most likely injury free.
Barefoot Science insoles improve and strengthen your core proprioception, making your balance and movement a natural motion.

So as you can see I’m a fan! and this is why i tell my patients to buy barefoot science insoles for their pain and i so far i have not been proven wrong with my recommendations.

The Cost of Barefoot Science Insoles vary from $69- $104  (£65- £90 ) depending on the range you choose and the severity of your injury or pain.  The most popular insole is the 6 step Active and Multi purpose Orthotic which both come in 3/4 and full length insoles.

What Is The Best Ointment For Knee Pain Relief

What Is The Best Ointment For Knee Pain Relief?

Well I Believe its Biofreeze because it worked for my ACL Injury.

pain relief cream for knees

I want to share with you how using this i believe the best ointment for knee pain relief  got me though one of my craziest weeks at work .

It totally changed my pain levels from a high 10 to a 4 in 48 hours and by the end of the week i was pretty much pain free.

Although this ointment was my life saviour ,

I did also help myself by applying a heat pad from Argos and physiotherapy exercises to strengthen and repair my knee joint.

Every thing was going great i was due out to my parents and i had my morning ritual exercise dvd to do and take then a quick walk with the dogs , a normal sunday morning  except today i decided to try a new fitness dvd  Jillian Michaels not that I’m blaming Jillian but a new exercise was obvisiouly to much for my 40 year old knee.

I felt a slight twinge and a pop as i was exercising a little burning but not an instant pain or jolt.  It wasn’t until i was about 10 minutes into walking the dogs i started to experience a sharper agonising pain and by the time i got back my knee was screaming!.  I felt sick and dizzy from the pain but had a 2 hour drive to do so i took some ibroprofen and hoped for the best.
Lucky for me it was my left knee and i drive an automatic car i made it down to my parents but which much sweating and pain!.

When i got home i took a tramadol tablet (i do not recommend these) it made me feel very spaced out and done nothing for the pain.

The only relief i got was from cold compressions of flannels and a packet of frozen peas, i tried deep heat cream but i personally found it made the inflammation worse and the gave me pulsing pain.

My knee injury was due to over stretching my knee ligaments to a position  my knee was not used too. ACL Injury.

Anterior Curciate Ligament

When exercising i raised my knee to my waist and moved it inwards to my centre of my body, I felt a pop and this was the ligament partially tearing…. ouch.

My physio told me that this rupture of the ligament was common when over extending or twisting the knee the wrong way.

Apparently only 20% of knee injuries are caused by direct contact and 80% are due to awkward twisting movements.

Symptoms of ACL Knee Injuries
  1. A cracking or popping sound in the knee at the time of injury
  2. Immediate Pain , when you try and put weight on the knee or try and bend it.
  3. Knee Swells up immediately but if you have a small tear the swelling may occur a few days later.
  4. Your knee may buckle with weight.
  5. Difficulty straightening the knee.

She worked on my ankle and knee and left me with several exercises to strengthen the knee joint which i still do today 3 years on.

At first the exercises were hard to do but every day i noticed the pain was easing and my knee wasn’t burning like hell ,

i personally believe exercises and stretches solve a lot of peoples foot and leg problems. You just have to do the work to see the results.

Best knee stretches for acl

Lift your knee slowly upwards to your chest and hold for 5 seconds and repeat 5 times.

Lie on your side and gently reach for your ankle and foot and pull your leg towards your back

Stand straight up and hold your foot and bend it gently towards your bottom. Hold for a few seconds and repeat 3 times.

 

best ointment for knee pain

My favourite stretch this one really works do this stretch on both knees.

when your knee is bent slowly rock forward.

This releases pressure to the joint.

Repeat 3 times each knee.

 

The cold compressions i felt had made a huge difference to the pain and swelling but i still felt burning,

my knee felt weak as i walked and the swelling became worse as the day went on.

My physiotherapist recommended i tried BIOFREEZE Gel 4 times a day .

Biofreeze is a topical analgesic a natural pain reliever thats uses menthol as a cooling agent.

The gel penetrates through the skin and relieves the joint or muscle ,by sending receptor messages to the brains pain receptor system.

This treatment is know as Cyrotherapy or Cold Therapy.

You may have seen Andy Murray taking an ice bath after each tennis game this is because it gives him instant relief to his joints and muscles.

  • Cooling pain relief cream for knees
  • Easy and more comfortable to apply to the knee joint

  • Lasts for a few hours rather then minutes
  • Non prescription treatment

The daily treatment plan i used to heal my ACL Knee Injury

Each day i done the following three things with our fail,
and this is how i solved my knee pain in 7 days .

But i continue to strengthen and stretch my knee during my warm up and warm down exercises at the gym.

I would encourage you to do to keep your knee strong and prevent repeat injuries.

I still get the odd niggle and i never want that pain again so i repeat my treatment plan,

using the best ointment for knee pain my beloved biofreeze!

and the pain soon goes away.

Daily Routine

1: I Stretched out and exercised my knees every day  spending 10-15 minutes in the morning this will set your body off to a good strong start.

2: I Applied the BIOFREEZE  GEL all over the knee and down to the calfs 3 times a day. It soaks in really fast 2-3 minutes .

I also applied BIOFREEZE SPRAY during the day when i got a niggle just for a boost to relieve pain.

3: Day 5 i started to use a heat pad (Dreamland Intelliheat) i brought from Argos 40x 35cm,

it has 5 temperature settings and heats up instantly. I sat with the pad under my knee and allowed the joint to relax in the evening.

I also went to bed a few time leaving the pad under my knee and the heat pad has a timer on it a switches off after 3 hours.

Its much safer then using a hot water bottle and not as fierce with the heat.

Its an amazing pain reliever .

I use this heat pad a lot.

I suffer from multiple aches including neck and stomach pain ,

and i find the heat pad an amazing cure for pain relief !.

I personally believe is the best investment I’ve bought for my body !

These actions really helped me and I’m sure will improve your knee pain too.

You are wise to invest in a consultation with a  sports physiotherapist to diagnose your injury.

To make sure you do the right stretches and exercises just in case you irritate the joint by over stretching.

My Physio charges £43 for 30 minutes and its money well spent.

I  go every 4-6 weeks as i my job involves a lot of bending and lifting .

And its part of my work schedule now and with regular check ups, stretching and using anti inflame gels i would seize up!

5 Natural remedies for Bunionette pain

Bunionette pain is a sharp or burning pain in the 5th / little toe.

Tailor`s Toe or a Bunionette is a painful bump on the side of the bone on the 5th metatarsal toe joint,

just like a Bunion on the big toe a Bunionette aka tailors toe can be very painful and corns and callous formation is a common causing inflammation and swelling making footwear very difficult.

As the toe rubs in the footwear the joint becomes red , blisters and corns appear and the toe becomes very painful to touch.

bunionette pain
Pain is the inital symptom of a bunionette on and around the 5th toe.

A blister or corn may appear making foot wear uncomfortable.

To cure a tailor`s toe pain if you have a corn is to have the callous removed and wear a bunionette pad this will stop the inflamation around the joint and ease the pressure and friction.
Podiatrists recommend unique designed bunionette pads or guards these supports the joint and protects the toe in footwear by preventing pain and friction associated with tailor`s toe pain.

Natural remedies for Bunionette Pain

1:   Soaking your feet 
Something simple and free. this relaxes the bones, tissue and muscles a Chiropody favourite remedy but very effective treatment which i would recommend you do after a long day at work or after exercising.

For additional bunionette relief add some table salt or epsom salts into the warm bowl of water .

Salt is a natural healer and if the bunionette has a blister or corn on it the salt will help prevent infections and increase healing .

Epsom salts is a natural remedies that relieves aching muscles and is used by athletes after training, it contains magnesium which is know for its healing powers.

2:  Ice treatments

Sports therapy ice sprays and gels will give good bunionette relief and are easily available from chemists and supermarkets.

Bio freeze is a main brand but any will do.   The cooling elements of the freeze relaxes the tissue around the joint and freezes or numbs the area you apply the gel or spray to.

Its a quick fix and with 10-15 minutes you the area will feel very cold and the pain will subside.   Using ice cubes or frozen goods is the same idea but these only give 5- 10minutes of relief  so not ideal.

3:  Bunionette pads or guards

bunionette padsBunionette pads like bunion supports are podiatry designed gel guards that slip over the toe and sits comfortably over the bunionette joint preventing friction in foot wear.

These are the best treatments for bunionettes i believe because they give immediate relief and prevent blisters and corns and are slim enough to fit over the toe and not cause additional restriction or pressure in your shoes.

4:  Chiropody Felt

Moleskin or fleecy web felt is ideal and is available at chemists . Apply stripes of felt along the side of the 5th toe and across to anchor like a cross.  This will cushion the achy joint and precent friction.  Bit tricky to apply to the foot.

5:  Wear comfortable footwear

Tight or narrow footwear will effect your bunionette pain, your feet will be squashed and pressure and friction will occur and additional pain from the tightness will most likely cause a blister or a corn on the little toe.

So being sensible and allowing room for your bunionette is important when choose shoes especially for work.

Bunionette pain over time can have damaging effect on the bone joints of the toe, our little toe has three bones and these can become traumatised bruised and infected in serious cases of bunionette pain.

The best cure for stopping bunionette pain is :

1: Don’t wear tight shoes
2: Wear a bunionette pad or guard

Helping your bodies immune system and preventing inflammation the to the joints is a great preventative too taking vitamin B5 and Vitamin c and Zinc are all anti-inflammatory boosters and will keep your bones and muscles healthy and strong.  Read our blog post on the best 3 vitamins for good foot health here:

Best vitamins and minerals to help heel pain

Learn about the Best Vitamins and minerals to help heel pain to solve your plantar fasciitis injury.  We recommended to patients who are long time sufferers or when physio and orthotic insoles are not curing the heel pain.  I believe in addition to heel relief pads that patients increase these 3 vitamins into their body through natural sources of food and vitamin supplements.

Self help and natural solutions for plantar fasciitis in my opinion is the best way cure.

The best 3 vitamins and minerals to help heel pain are:

1#  Magnesium
2# Vitamin  B5
3# Proteolytic Enzymes

How to increase these vitamins and minerals naturally into your immune system

Magnesium

images-2
This essential mineral helps bone formation by utilising calcium. Half of the bodies magnesium is stored in our bones.

 

Epsom Salts are a magnesium sulphate and have incredible  beneficial    properties that relieve pain and inflammation.

Used by athletes after training to relax and relief aching muscles and foot pain.  Take a bowl of warm water and add 2-3 table spoons of epsom salts and soak your feet for 10 minutes.  you can also use Magnesium Oil similar to salts which are more flakes which you can rub directly onto your skin or soak your feet in a bowl.

Eating magnesium rich foods like leafy greens including spinach , swiss chard, pumpkin   seeds, lentils, white beans.black eyed peas, brown rice,avocado,figs, and bananas.

Or take a daily magnesium supplement.

Signs your magnesium levels could be are low include:

Low energy
Weak bones
Muscle tension, cramps, spasms
Headaches
Fatigue
Low energy
Anxiety

Additional magnesium deficiency may include constipation, vertigo,stiff and achy muscles.

You magnesium levels may be low due to these factors:
Stress
Diet (Coffee, Sugar, Alcohol)
Medications

You need magnesium in your body because it is responsible for multiple body processes and its the 4th most abundant mineral that our body needs to operate over 300 essential bodily functions. It is well know to prevent constipation but magnesium is essential for our hearts,muscles, kidneys as well as balancing out additional nutrients including calcium and potassium.  Ensuring our magnesium levels are correct will prevent diabetes , osteoporosis and keep our blood pressure level.

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
Unknown

Vitamin B5  prevents nerve damage and reduces muscle impairment pain and stress.  A low B5 count can mean muscle and nerve disfunction. Taking vitamin B5 will accelerate the bodies healing process.

You can naturally increase your B5 intake by eating foods such as avocados, beef liver, duck, broccoli, sunflower seeds, eggs , salmon and lentils.

You would struggle to get the boost from eating all these foods so try taking a B Vitamin complex supplement.

Signs of Vitamin B5 Deficiency may include:

Fatigue
Depression
Burning feet
Muscle cramps
Anxiety
Vomiting

People who may have higher Risk factors of a B5 Deficiency may include women who are on the oral birth control pills.  people with severe malnutrition , Alcoholics.

Benefits of Vitamin B5
  • Improves cardiovascular health
  • Lowers Cholesterol
  • Maintains a healthy nerve function
  • Metabolises our food into energy
  • Helps our mental health
  • Reduces our stress
  • Assists healing
  • Helps rheumatoid arthritis
  • Boosts our immune system
  • Improves our skin including preventing or curing acne

 

 

Proteolytic Enzymes

These enzymes support our immune system and acts as a anti- inflammation agent and helps reduces inflamed sports injuries and traumas to the body.  They are used to treat auto immune diseases such as lupus , rheumatoid arthritis and by increases your proteolytic enzymes intake you can see how it assists the healing of the fascia tissue and your general muscle and joint pain heel.

The best form of proteolytic enzymes  for heeling your plantar fasciitis and heel pain is Bromelain this is found in the stem of Pineapples! Unknown-4
but there is an easier way then coring out the stem of a pineapple.
Bromelain supplements are available 1000gdu is recommended to produce enough anti-inflammatory enzymes to reduce heel pain and swelling.
