What You Can Learn From Mark Wahlberg’s Toenails!

Mark Wahlberg may be most known for his extraordinary big screen talents. During a recent appearance though on the Ellen DeGeneres show however, he revealed dealing with something very ordinary: an ingrown toenail. Wahlberg shared about his toe troubles, which ended with him having part of his toenail surgically removed. Wahlberg’s experience can shed some light on what to do if you are dealing with an ingrown toenail problem.

Do You Need to See a Podiatrist for an Ingrown Toenail?

Yes! Cutting your nail wrong or too short, wearing poorly fitting shoes and toenail trauma can all lead to an ingrown toenail. If you are experiencing redness, pain or swelling due to an ingrown toenail do not ignore it. Drs. Brook and Northcutt, foot specialists at Dallas Podiatry Works, treat too many patients who have waited too long for treatment. An ingrown toenail can recur and may develop into a serious infection if not treated properly. This is especially dangerous for someone with diabetes.

If you do get treatment for an ingrown toenail, it is also important to give it time to heal. If you can avoid jumping on a plane right away like Mark Wahlberg had to do, it is in your best interest to rest your foot. Even small procedures can be traumatic to a toe and resuming activity too soon can compromise the healing process.

Our podiatric office has two convenient locations to serve your foot and ankle needs. If you are suffering in pain with an ingrown toenail, we can help get you back on your feet. Call us in Dallas (972) 566-7474 or Plano (972) 943-3323 to schedule an appointment or fill out our online contact form.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star all h
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"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 care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
