Toenails are a complex part of the body. Healthy toenails are pink, thin, and free of markings and grooves. However people of all ages can suffer from a variety of toenail issues, with the most common being trauma.
At MyPod Podiatry we use sterile instruments to treat all nail conditions including:
- Onychocryptosis (ingrown toenails)
- Onychauxic (thickened nails)
- Onychogryphosis (deformed nails)
- Onychomycosis (fungal infected nails)
- Onycholysis (separation of the nail from the nail bed)
- Onychophosis (callus around the nail)
General nail care can also be provided for a range of different reasons such as diabetes, vision impairment, reduced mobility, elderly patients, lower back complications, hip or knee replacement or anyone experiencing difficulties with attending to their own nail care safely.
If you have diabetes, it is best to have a Podiatrist cut your toenails due to the many risks associated with diabetes and the feet. These risks associated with Diabetes include reduced blood circulation or sensation in your feet which result in delayed healing and unawareness of pain or trauma.
Many elderly people experience deterioration in strength, flexibility or eye sight and may find it difficult to attend to their own nail and foot care. At myPod Podiatry we specialise in nail problems and are more than happy to assist you with this task.
