Treatment at Nenagh Footcare Clinic
At Nenagh Footcare Clinic, we offer nail bracing as a way to manage ingrown or involuted toenails without surgery.
We understand that ingrown and involuted toenails can have a significant impact on your quality of life because painful toes can restrict mobility and prevent you from doing activities that you like to do. Nail bracing can be a great treatment option for people who have recurrent ingrown toenail issues, nail involution, or those who do not want or are unable to have surgery.
The Nail Brace consists of a high grade very thin steel metal strip that is measured to perfectly fit your nail and then glued across the surface of the nail. Once the nail brace is in place the brace becomes bowed, resulting in the sides of the nail lifting upward slightly, effectively freeing the nail and underlying skin from pressure. With involuted nails, over time the nail brace can reduce the involution or inward curving of the toenail.
