Corns and Calluses Blue Mountains
Our practice provides care for sufferers of corns and calluses to the Katoomba and Faulconbridge communities as well as to surrounding suburbs including; Springwood, Glenbrook, Blaxland, Wentworth Falls, Katoomba, Blackheath and Penrith.
Corns
A corn is a centralised mass of hard skin which generally occurs around high pressure areas such as under the ball of the foot, between toes or on the side of toes where a shoe may rub. Corns can be very painful and need to be addressed as soon as possible to prevent further tissue break down.
Can a corn be treated?
Yes, at Blue Mountains Podiatry people present to our clinic with corns daily, and in our experienced therapists can easily remove a corn with a sterile blade. The process is pain free and occurs within a couple of minutes. We then examine what is causing the corn in the first place and put together strategies to help stop it returning in the future.

Ingrown toenails can be a very painful condition! They occur when a nail starts to grow into the surrounding skin, often resulting in a small break in the skin which may lead to inflammation and infection.

Ball of foot pain (Metatarsalgia)
Our practice provides care for sufferers of ball of foot pain to the Katoomba and Faulconbridge communities as well as to surrounding suburbs including; Springwood, Glenbrook, Blaxland, Wentworth Falls, Katoomba, Blackheath and Penrith.
Metatarsalgia is a broad umbrella term to describe an array of conditions that cause pain in the ball of the foot (under your foot just before the toes). Pain in the ball of the foot can be debilitating to the point where it can stop you performing basic activities or sports. It is very common as the ball of the foot is under constant, excessive pressure for long periods of time. Morton’s neuroma, flexor plate dysfunction, capsulitis, bursitis and osteo arthritis are often conditions that cause pain in the ball of the foot.
Ball of foot pain is often caused by poor fitting or inappropriate footwear, high impact sports, poor foot mechanics (the way someone is walking), being overweight, a reduction of the fatty pad at the ball of the foot and walking on uneven or rocky ground.
At Blue Mountains Podiatry we are experts in diagnosing, managing and treating conditions that can cause pain in the ball of the foot and getting you back on your feet, pain free.

Flat Feet
Our practice provides care for sufferers of flat feet to the Katoomba and Faulconbridge communities as well as to surrounding suburbs including; Springwood, Glenbrook, Blaxland, Wentworth Falls, Katoomba, Blackheath and Penrith.
Have you got flat feet?
Flat feet is generally a term describing ‘fallen arches.’ Most of the time this is genetic in nature but sometimes it can be an acquired condition due to an injury or dysfunction in the foot. ‘Rolling in’ or pronation is often associated with flat feet.
A certain amount of pronation is normal and is necessary for shock absorption of the body. However, too much pronation for too long will stop the foot from propelling the body forward smoothly and efficiently.
At Blue Mountains Podiatry flat feet is a condition that encounter on a daily basis, which is not surprising given 7 in every 10 people pronate to some degree. Flat feet alters the biomechanics of the lower limbs, resulting in strain through soft tissue structures, postural dysfunction and inefficient walking patterns. It can often be a major contributing factor in the injury or overuse of soft tissue in the feet and legs. This can cause heel pain, arch pain, shin pain, knee and ankle pain. The nature of flat feet can also lead to pain in the hips and low back. Our expert therapists have a proven track record in assessing and managing patients with flat feet and the related conditions flat feet can cause.
