Pliers, scissors, pocket knives, and teeth. What do all these things have in common? People who have attended our clinic have used these items to self-treat their ingrown toenails. Using sterile instruments and expertise, allow your chiropodist at Werkman, Boven & Associates to treat this frustrating and painful problem professionally.
One of the leading causes of ingrown toenails is improper nail trimming. Nails cut too short or rounded can grow into the skin and cause inflammation and pain. Other factors that can contribute to ingrown toenails include tight shoes, injury to the toe, and genetic predisposition.
