Foot Pain & Problem

Corns on the root of toes


With Stratum corneum, the root of toes thicken and corns develop, often becoming painful in advanced cases. When the corn grows deeper than stratum corneum, it forms a core type of corn in order to skin respire. This is often seen among people who regularly wear high heeled shoes or sandals.


In cases of bunion, ungrounded toe and flatfoot, the arch of the foot falls and conversely, the bottom of the foot becomes bowed. This causes the roots of the toes to strike the ground repeatedly when walking and in an effort to protect the bones. The stratum corneum thickens. This is particularly common among those who wear high heels and sandals and unconsciously try to “grab” their shoes with their toes to keep the shoe from falling off. When toes are kept curled in this way, corns can also develop on the upper surface of the toes.


As the body builds the extra thickness to protect itself, even if the corn is shaved, it will come back in about 3 weeks if the root cause is not treated with the Kasahara Taping Treatment (in cases with foot pain). We recommend using the seismic isolation insole (artificial muscle insole) as well. To prevent the return of corns, treatment needs to be continued for 6 months.

As a simpler solution, a W supporter (with finger pad) can be used at home while a bandage and 3-toe socks can be used in combination when going out.

Please be careful not to confuse this ailment with a fatigue fracture of the head of the metatarsal bone.
