Ingrown Toe Nails

Foot and toe nails

Painful ingrown toe nails can occur if you wear tight fitting footwear, or fail to properly maintain your toe nails (ie. trimming toe nails too short, or not trimming them at all). The skin along the edge of the ingrown toe nail can become red, and infected, causing your ingrown toe nail to become inflamed or purulent and making it difficult to walk, or even put on your shoes! At Nourishing Thyself Clinic, we use a device manufactured by B/S Spange which can be customized to correct even the most difficult of ingrown toe nails. After the ingrown toe nail surface is ground smooth and milled, the B/S Spange Classic brace which is available in a variety of sizes to suit different ingrown toe nail sizes and shapes, is affixed to the ingrown toe nail and straddles its width. The brace spans the ingrown toe nail, its tension can be reduced, and it adjusts to the ingrown toe nail automatically. It safely and efficiently corrects, or alleviates, symptoms of ingrown toe nails. It is also used to treat:

  • Rolled toe nails
  • Partial toe nails
  • Paronychial corns
  • Dry hyper-granulation

The B/S Spange brace is suitable for diabetics. Easy to use, it can be affixed in seconds, stays safely in place, is easy to care for, is water resistant and has a pleasing aesthetic design which makes it unobtrusive and suitable for nail varnish wearers.
