CANADIAN PODIATRIST STATES THAT SOME RUNNERS OPT FOR NAIL AVULSIONS

VANCOUVER SPORTS MEDICINE PODIATRIST, DR. JOSEPH STERN, STATES, "ALL RUNNERS ENDURE BEAT-UP TOENAILS.  THEY'RE MARKS OF DISTINCTION, REMINDERS OF RACES RUN AND KILOMETERS TRAVELLED.  RUNNERS WHO DON'T WANT TO CONTEND WITH CONSTANTLY BRUISED, INGROWN AND LOST TOENAILS, SOMETIMES HAVE THEM REMOVED PERMANENTLY.  WE TRY NOT TO HAVE PATIENTS WATCH.  THERES A ULE:  THE BIGGER THE GUY, THE FASTER HE PASSES OUT."

PODIATRIST STERN STATES, "AESTHETICALLY, THE LACK OF THE NAIL IS BARELY DISCERNIBLE.  A HARD CALLUS FORMS IN THE NAIL'S PLACE.  FEW RUNNERS OPT TO UNDERGO PERMANENT SURGERY, THOUGH."  DR. STERN ONLY PERFORMS A COUPLE OF PROCEDURES A YEAR ON RUNNERS' FEET.
