BV Foot Clinic: Don't Let the Corn Get as High as an Elephant's Eye

                                                  Don’t Let the Corn Get as High as an Elephant’s Eye

Now that warm weather is here, people are looking forward to enjoying corn on the cob once again. While it may be a summer delight, there’s another type of corn that’s an unwelcome sight; but, indeed, it doesn’t sprout from seed. It’s the kind that grows on the toes; and it’s in season, causing many woes.
Yes, thousands of people are now dealing with corns, which often form during colder months when heavy socks and shoes, constantly rubbing against areas of the feet, create friction, causing skin in those spots to thicken. Besides being unattractive, corns can be painful, and, if they become infected, may even lead to serious issues for diabetics. So, before the corn gets as high as an elephant’s eye, let us remove it – just stop on by.

                                                             Custom Orthotics Will Have You Walking on Air

Whether caused by over-exertion, flat feet, plantar fasciitis, or other conditions, foot pain can be debilitating. While shoe inserts can help, those sold in stores are often inadequate, as they’re not designed for specific individuals. So, come see us, and we’ll evaluate your situation according to your foot type, gait, joint motion, muscle strength, age, and activity level, and create orthotic inserts just for you.

Besides having you walking on air, our custom-fit orthotics can help prevent further injuries and ailments; and, as they’re prescribed by a certified podiatrist, your insurance company may even foot the bill.
