Ingrown toenails can be painful, cause discomfort, and even increase your risk for infection, but the good news is they are treatable. There are many cases which can be successfully addressed at home and, of course, our foot experts at Dallas Podiatry Works are here for ones that need professional care. That said, we would prefer to know you were able to prevent an ingrown toenail from developing in the first case, and we bet you do too!
Even better than the fact ingrown nails can be treated is knowing many can be prevented. Now, sometimes nails become ingrown due to an inherited nail structure, but you can take the following steps to reduce your chances of having one develop due to other causes:
Now, if you have an ingrown toenail that develops on account of an inherited foot structure there isn’t really much that can be done from a prevention perspective, but you can still come see us for the treatment you need.
We take pride in providing effective care for the wide array of lower limb issues—including ingrown toenails—that bring patients in to see us. If you are in need of quality foot care services, contact Dallas Podiatry Works by calling us at 972.853.7100. Of course, if you want to schedule an appointment with either our Plano or Dallas offices, you can do that online right now.
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
