Some years ago a Mrs L came to the clinic to have her feet ‘tidied up’ before she went into hospital for knee surgery. Being a very active lady, her knee was causing a lot of pain and preventing her from doing the gardening and dog walking that she loved. Mrs L had a nasty corn on the ball of her right foot which she had been putting off being treated, partly because she was more concerned about her knee and partly because she had a phobia of needles and scalpels!
I removed the corn quickly and easily, much to her relief, padded the foot and asked her to come back in a month, just before she went in for surgery, as I didn’t want a painful corn to hamper her rehabilitation.
Mrs L returned 4 weeks later and reported that she had postponed her operation – her knee was no longer painful. She had been walking awkwardly (subconsciously) to take the weight off the corn and so had been putting a lot of pressure on her knee. Now the corn was gone, she was walking better, her knee was aligned properly and so no more pain, just an occasional twinge which she was more than happy to live with.
5 years on and Mrs L still hasn’t needed surgery, but she attends the clinic regularly for maintenance to keep that corn at bay.
