Foot calluses and corns are hard or thick areas of the skin that can be unsightly as well as uncomfortable and sometimes painful. Often, they are not serious, but you don't have to live with calluses or corns. You can get them treated and removed with the help of your Culver City Foot Doctor. Associated Foot Care Clinic, Inc. provides foot callus and corn diagnosis and treatment services for patients in the West Los Angeles area.
End Discomfort and Pain with Professional Foot Callus Treatment
The feet are often sites of lumps of hard skin called corns, and patches of rough, thick skin known as calluses. Patches of compact and dead skin are caused by friction or pressure and can grow over time. These are not often serious but they can cause discomfort or even pain due to their hardness. However, for those with diabetes, heart diseases or other circulatory issues, corns and calluses should be treated by medical professionals.
Dr. J. Leonard Knudson's podiatric services includes diagnosing foot conditions, assessing their health and the potential of any complications, and correcting these calluses by trimming them or even through surgery.
Generally, these procedures are painless as the skin is already dead. If these corns or calluses recur, additional treatments may be needed. Those with diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions will require regular checkups for their feet as well.
Diagnosis is crucial in order to detect potential complications or unnoticed conditions and determine the appropriate course of action. In his Culver City practice, Dr. Knudson will conduct a thorough examination of patients' feet and take their complete medical history. With this, appropriate care can be given, not only to treat the callus but to provide long-term care for patients' feet.
