Ingrown toenail treatments in ottawa

Ingrown toenails are caused by the edges of the nail plate pressing into the surrounding skin of the toenail. When the toenail is ingrown, it can lead to pain, redness, inflammation, and infection. This is because the nail causes a tear in the skin, which not only irritates the skin but also allows bacteria to easily enter the toe. Patients who have diabetes, poor circulation to their legs, heart conditions, immunosuppressed, or any other underlying medical condition, are at risk of severe complications from ingrown toenails and infections, and need to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Our Non-Invasive Approach

At Natural Sole Wellness Centre, our Nurse offers a non-invasive and a non-surgical approach to provide ingrown toenail care by using sterile and professional instruments. We also use a topical numbing spray to reduce any discomfort while removing the painful nail spikes or correcting the shape and curve of the toenail. Our Nurse will also provide wound care, preventive care, and health teaching. A follow up appointment is also booked 4-6 weeks post treatment to reassess your progress. To prevent ingrown toenails, we recommend wearing properly fitted shoes, and to trim the toenails straight across and not cutting them to short.

If needed, we use a non-surgical “nail bracing” method to correct painful ingrown or involuted toenails. This correction system helps eliminate painful toenails that have often become too curved and/or that grow into the skin. This procedure is painless with no downtime and allows the nail to grow naturally, while pulling the nail plate away from the edges.

When you suffer from ingrown toenails, please do not attempt any “bathroom surgeries” or wait any longer. This can increase the risk of infections and inflammation, delaying proper healing. Call our clinic for an assessment and treatment with our Registered Nurse. We also offer “urgent appointments” if needed.
