Foot Podiatrist from Footwork Podiatry in North Shore Sydney CBD Sports Clinic Waking Can Increase Your Lifespan
Brisk walking can increase your lifespan While it's common knowledge that exercise has numerous health benefits,...
An ingrown toenail is one of those pesky minor ailments that can cause a lot of pain, discomfort and inconvenience. Wearing enclosed shoes becomes problematic when even the slightest pressure on the affected toe can cause additional pain. It can make walking uncomfortable and rule out playing any kind of sport until the issue is resolved.
What exactly is an ingrown toenail?
Mark Lin is Australia’s leading sports podiatrist, Principal Sports Podiatrist and Director of Sydney-based Footwork Podiatry, and he says “Improper nail trimming, tight-fitting footwear, trauma or pressure from the adjacent toes can cause the edge of the nail to grow into the skin, causing inflammation, swelling, infection and pain.”
Fortunately, there are some effective remedies you can try at home before seeing a podiatrist for this common ailment, says Lin.
If you have tried all of the above without much relief, suffer from recurring incidents and would like an alternative to surgery, Footwork Podiatry is on hand to assist.
Lin highly recommends a revolutionary new treatment modality called nail bracing. “Nail bracing is a unique solution to ingrown toenails, utilising a fibreglass brace that is fitted to the toenail. The brace corrects the curvature of the toenail, thereby lifting the toenail out of the nail fold gently over time, without pain.”
“This treatment technique has a high rate of success and we’ve consistently seen a vast improvement in patients with recurring incidents. It’s quick to apply, painless and provides symptomatic relief as soon as thirty minutes after application. This is the perfect solution for people who would like to avoid surgery and our podiatrists are highly experienced in the technique,” Lin concludes.
