Ingrown toenails can be a very painful condition! Sometimes toenails grow inward and can pierce the surrounding skin, potentially leading to inflammation and infection. Common causes of ingrown nails are poor nail cutting techniques, tightly fitting shoes and genetic factors.
At Blue Mountains Podiatry ingrown nails are the most common nail complaint that we see. With our therapists treating approximately 8-10 ingrown nails per day. We aim to diagnose and treat the condition quickly and effectively so that you can go back to doing the things you love pain free. Without prompt and appropriate management, ingrown nails can lead to chronic pain, inflammation and infection. As such, it is vital to determine all underlying factors contributing to the presentation of your ingrown toenail and get you on the road to recovery. We ensure a full and swift recovery through the best treatment options tailored to your particular circumstances.
