Re: Desperate for help

Re: Corns

i dont know anything about corns or pads but i would say its more of a muscle issue then a joint. joints tend to just get worse with exercises, muscle can warm up

Re: Dental cleaning/exam

I would argue that if you're going straight to extraction why not just wait until its causing him discomfort?
