Corns, Callous, ingrown nails or other troublesome foot issues?
When we finally get out of the house or office, the last thing you want to feel is pinpoints of pain in between your toes or under your feet. Corns and callous can put a damper on a run or wearing your favorite shoes. Kate, our Podiatrist and Running Coach, can help take away those points of pain and show you how to treat them.”
