Corns and callus are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when the skin tries to protect itself against friction or pressure. When this dry and thick skin builds up, specifically on the heels, it can crack and split causing pain. Corns tend to develop over bony prominences and can be very painful.

Tinea Pedis or ‘Athlete’s Foot’, is a common, contagious fungal skin infection that typically begins between the toes causing an itchy, scaly rash. Onychomycosis is a common nail fungus that begins with white or yellow-brown spots under the tip of a nail. As it deepens, the nail continues to discolour, thicken, and crumble. Both are caused by the same organisms and, as such, one can cause the other.

Morton’s Neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of the foot. It’s caused when the tissue has thickened around one of the nerves leading to the toe. It can cause sharp, burning pain in the ball of the foot and similar symptoms to the affected toe/s. Tight/narrow footwear is the most common cause of a Morton’s Neuroma.

plantar fasciitis and heel spurs icon

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain and occurs when the thick band of tissue (called the plantar fascia) that runs across the bottom of each foot and connects the heel bone to the toes becomes inflamed. Plantar Fasciitis is often associated with heel spurs which is when a spike of bone develops from the front of the heel bone.

Achilles Tendinopathy is a common overuse injury that occurs from repetitive use of the Achilles tendon (tendon that attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone). A common sports injury, Achilles Tendinopathy causes pain, stiffness, thickening, and swelling in the Achilles tendon.

Patients with Diabetes are at a high risk of Peripheral Neuropathy (reduced sensation) and Peripheral Vascular Disease (reduced blood flow) to their legs and feet. Regular Neurovascular Assessments are recommended for individuals with, or at risk of, Diabetes to monitor sensation and circulation and prevent the formation of wounds, ulcers, and serious infections.

Arthritis is an umbrella term for conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system resulting in inflammation of the joints in the body.
