Fort Worth Deformed Toenail Treatment

Deformed toenails have many causes. Here at our office, we see many patients with deformed toenails. The most common cause of a deformity is trauma to the nail. This can be from stubbing your toe, dropping something on your foot, or even wearing ill-fitting shoes. Ill-fitting shoes are a common cause of hammertoes, which can then lead to deformities of the toenails.

Other causes of deformed nails can be hereditary, or due to certain health conditions such as psoriasis or diabetes. No matter the cause, we can create a treatment plan to improve the appearance of your nails and relieve any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing.

If you have a deformed toenail, the first step is to come in for a consultation. During your consultation, we will take a look at your nails and ask about your medical history and any symptoms you may be experiencing. We will then determine the best course of treatment for you.

There are a few different options for treating deformed toenails. If the deformity is mild, we may recommend trimming the nails and filing them down to a more comfortable shape. For more severe deformities, we may recommend a procedure called partial nail avulsion. This is a minor outpatient procedure where we remove part of the nail. This can be done with or without an oral antifungal medication.

For patients with hammertoes, we may recommend a toe splint or custom orthotic to help keep the toe in its correct position. We may also recommend physical therapy to help stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons around the toe.

If you are living with a deformed toenail, don’t hesitate to reach out to our office. We can create a treatment plan that will help you achieve the results you desire.
