A callus, also known as hyperkeratosis, is an area of hard, thickened skin that can occur across the ball of the foot, on the heel, or on the outer side of the big toe.
Calluses form from repeated friction and pressure, as the shoe (or ground) rubs against a bony prominence (bone spur) on the toe or foot.
A condition called Intractable Plantar Keratosis (IPK) is a deep callus directly under the ball of the foot.


If you suffer from calluses, it is important to have X-rays taken and have your feet evaluated by a Foot and Ankle Specialist. Contact a Foot and Ankle Surgeon today at Academy Foot and Ankle Specialists for a thorough exam and treatment plan.
Although many consider them a skin problem, they are indicative of a problem with the underlying bones or our biomechanics (the way we walk).


Calluses typically develop under a metatarsal head (the long bone that forms the ball of the foot).
