Corns, are you sure?

Corns are formed due to localised pressure on the skin in pressure areas and rubbing (tight shoes, deformed toes, etc.). Generally these are divided into two categories, emerging corns (localised on the surface of the skin) and established corns (which have already developed deeper into the foot and cause more intense pain as they press on the nerve endings).

Ow, it hurts!

Cracks, are you sure?

The defence mechanisms of the skin cause inflammation, drying out of the skin and thickening of the skin (hyperkeratosis), resulting in a break in the surface of the skin (appearance of cracks of varying depths). Whether on the hands or feet, the causes are often exposure to heat and cold, aggressive household products, rubbing or manual labour.

 

Cracks are painful and difficult to heal.

Lumbago or muscle pain, are you sure?

There are two factors which can explain muscle pain. The accumulation of toxins in the muscle fibres, as well as a lack of nutrients and energy in the muscles can cause the muscles to over-contract. They then remain over-contracted, hard and painful.

Overly intense effort or poor posture is often the cause of these back pains!

Strains or sprains, are you sure?

After a trauma (injury to the muscle and/or tendon and ligament tissues), the healing process for these tissues begins. The first phase of this healing is inflammation (warmth, redness, oedema, pain). This painful phase consumes a lot of energy and causes heat. Applying something cool to the area greatly slows inflammation and relieves the pain.
