How Are Corns Treated?
(http://ow.ly/CeAC30n44ux)

When treating corns, the providers at Manhattan Footcare always try to rule out foot deformities and other underlying conditions first. Depending on the severity and location of your corns, treatment may include custom orthotics; padding and taping; callus-removing medication; or paring down of the affected skin. Whatever the cause of your corns, addressing them and relieving your pain is possible.

Who Is At Risk of Hammertoe?
(http://ow.ly/fROo30n44uw)

Hammertoe affects men and women, but certain factors can increase your risk of a problem. For example, hammertoe tends to affect individuals who are age 40 or over; the likelihood of the condition increases as you get older. Women are also more likely to experience hammertoe than men. Chronic illness can also play a role; if you have diabetes or arthritis, the structures of your feet are more likely to be negatively affected.

What Is Post-Traumatic Arthritis?
(http://ow.ly/5FKg30n44ut)

Post-traumatic arthritis is a type of arthritis that occurs following an accident or injury. While any type of injury can lead to post-traumatic arthritis, dislocations and fractures are the two primary culprits. Over time, post-traumatic arthritis causes the cartilage around the joints to wear away. Slowly but surely, leading to pain, swelling, and general discomfort.

Why Do Fungi Like My Feet?
(http://ow.ly/2z1O30n44us)

Fungi thrive in warm, damp, and dark places, like the insides your shoes and socks. Each of your feet contains over 250,000 sweat glands that are activated throughout the day. While there's no way to prevent foot fungus entirely, drying your feet regularly, changing socks throughout the day, and letting your shoes air out in-between wears can significantly lower your risk.

What Is Charcot Foot?
(http://ow.ly/ApG630n44un)

Charcot's foot is a serious medical condition that typically affects patients with diabetes. It's defined by weak and brittle bones in the feet that develop as a result of untreated peripheral neuropathy. Over time, the condition causes your bones to collapse and fracture, leading to deformities and in some cases, the need for an amputation. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with diabetes, make sure you're taking preventive health measures and inspecting your feet on a daily basis.
