What causes thickened toe nails?
There are many different causes of thickened toe nails. Nail Fungal infections and intermittent trauma to the nails are the most common form of thickened nails. Age is another cause of thickened nails, metabolic changes and reduced circulation to the nail can contribute to the thickening.
What should I do if I have thickened nails?
It is important to have your nails checked by a HcPC Chiropodist or Podiatrist to investigate how and why the nails have become thickened. If your nails are painful due to thickening there are a few simple treatments a Chiropodist or Podiatrist can do to relieve your symptoms.
How can a Chiropodist or Podiatrist help?
After an initial consultation the toe nails can be effectively cut and shaped. Chiropodists or Podiatrists may use a nail bur to reduce the thickness of the nails, re-shape them and reduce pressure from the nail. A routine chiropody treatment should be pain free and after your treatment you will be given further information to improve the overall health of your feet.
