TORONTO PODIATRIST DISCUSSES INGROWN TOENAILS IN THE TORONTO STAR 25/06/2013

TORONTO PODIATRIST MR. CHELIN STATED IN THE TORONTO STAR ON 25/06/2013 THAT "AN INGROWN TOENAIL HAPPENS WHEN THE NAIL CURVES INTO THE SKIN, BREAKING THROUGH AND OFTEN CAUSING AN INFECTION.  SYMPTOMS INCLUDE SWELLING, REDNESS, PAIN AND POSSIBLY DISCHARGE."

PODIATRIST MR. CHELIN STATES "MANY INGROWN TOENAILS CAN BE PREVENTED WITH A SIMPLE FIX: CUTTING THE TOENAILS STRAIGHT ACROSS, RATHER THAN ROUNDING THEM.  ALONG WITH IMPROPER CUTTING, HEREDITY AND ILL FITTING SHOES ARE ALSO CONSIDERED RESPONSIBLE FOR INGROWN TOENAILS.  FOR MINOR CASES BATHING IN EPSOM SALT AND APPLYING TOPICAL ANTIBIOTICS CAN FIX THE PROBLEM.  MORE URGENT CASES REQUIRE A TRIP TO THE FOOT SPECIALIST  --  IT COULD NEED SURGICAL REMOVAL."

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SETS OUR FOOT CLINIC APART FROM OTHERS IS THAT WE USE COMPUTERIZED PAINLESS INJECTIONS FOR OUR FOOT SURGERY WHERE THE PATIENT FEELS NO PAIN WHATSOEVER DURING THE PROCEDURE.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.
