Callus or heel spur is usually on the sole of the foot; The habit of stepping incorrectly can occur due to reasons such as wearing hard-soled shoes, standing a lot, walking a lot, doing a lot of sports. This situation, which can be very painful, can disrupt the comfort of life in severe dimensions from time to time. It can cause the patient to experience problems that will affect the daily life of the patient, preventing the patient from walking.
CALCULA-HEEL STRUCTURES TREATMENT
In the treatment of calluses, we actually have a wide variety of treatment options. The doctor can decide this by looking at the patient’s lesion, the depth and localization of the lesion.
In the treatment of callus-heel spurs, the physician may first choose to treat it using topical creams or solutions or patches. Although the chance of treatment with this topical treatment option is low, results can be obtained in some mild forms of callus treatments.
Laser Therapy in the treatment of calluses and heel spurs; Calluses can be easily treated with CO2 laser technology. It is a very safe and successful treatment method.
Cauterization Method in the treatment of callus-heel spurs; It is a very old and easy application that I often prefer. After the area with the callus is anesthetized with a local anesthetic, that area is cauterized. It is important to advance to the root of the lesion and remove the entire root. Otherwise, the recurrence rate is too high.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE AFTER THE TREATMENT OF CALUS-HEEL Spurs, so that it does not recur?
After the correct treatment is done, the compressive factors should be removed so that the callus does not recur to the patient. For example, if there are calluses between the two toes of the foot, with the help of a separator, these two toes should be prevented from touching each other too tightly while wearing shoes. If a patient wears shoes with very high heels, pointed toes, and hard soles; In daily life, more comfortable, soft-soled, flatter comfortable shoes should be preferred.
