calluses on soles of feet = ticking time bomb
« on: April 19, 2013, 05:48:55 pm »
this isn't really a proper injury but can cause a big inconvenience if it happens. this isn't me but it has happened before due to fast changes of direction whilst in bare feet. It really sucks because it makes walking really uncomfortable and playing basketball is out of the question.

this nearly happened to me again earlier (wearing shoes playing bball). other than shoes are are really snug fitting is there anything you can do about this? I did think about possibly filing down the callused area but I'm worried that this might just make my foot more vulnerable instead of helping.

I've never had a problem with cutting off the calluses on my hands from lifting but i think that's slightly different.

kind of an odd thread but i think a genuine concern. any suggestions would be cool.

i have very thick callouses on my heels. nothing helpful to add but i'm also curious whether anyone on here has experienced problems with callouses or knows anything about dealing with them.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
