Ingrown toenails, or onychocryptosis, are one of the most common foot problems our chiropodists treat. They can also be one of the most painful foot conditions. An ingrown toenail occurs when the nail is growing into the surrounding tissue, causing inflammation, redness, and swelling of the tissue. This painful condition can lead to infection if left untreated and cause further problems for the patient.
Those suffering from diabetes or who have poor circulation to their feet must see a chiropodist for professional treatment of ingrown toenails. At McQuistan Chiropody, we specialize in ingrown nails and can help you safely treat them to prevent additional health issues.
