Foot pain can impact virtually every part of your life, from how you keep in shape to how you travel to and from work every day. One of the most common and occasionally most painful foot conditions is ingrown toenails.
At McLean & Partners in Brisbane, we provide conservative and surgical ingrown toenail treatments to give each of our patients the best odds of walking and standing without pain.
Ingrown toenails can affect anyone, regardless of age, racial or social demographics or personal hygiene. This condition usually manifests with redness and tenderness at the edges of the toenails caused by the nail intruding on the flesh. As the condition progresses, the toenail can become infected or extremely painful.
If you know or suspect that you have an ingrown nail, see our podiatrist for ingrown toenail treatment. This treatment may include manually changing the growth pattern of the nail or ingrown toenail surgery.
Our podiatrists may also recommend steps you can take to reduce the risk of ingrown nails, including changing the way you cut the nails, choosing footwear better suited to your feet and caring for your feet properly after injuries and high-risk activities like certain sports.
If you’re suffering from an ingrown toenail that has not responded to at-home remedies, contact us today to schedule an appointment at our Brisbane City or Beenleigh location. We can provide acute ingrown toenail treatment and recommend changes to prevent similar issues in the future.
