A 'Ram's Horn' Toenail is one that tends to grow in layers and also tends to curve over. These nails are incredibly difficult for the patient to trim themselves and sometimes require removal. As you can see, the patient wasn't hurt at all and had actually had the other big toenail removed a couple weeks prior for the same reason. Dr. Nicole Freels' patient was so grateful to be able to fit into proper shoes again and not have the pain associated with this toenail deformity.

Just Cut My Feet Off!
Many of my patients on their first visit are so frustrated with the countless types of treatment they have already tried. Nothing really sticks. Sure – stretching, icing, fancy insoles help a little. But, it never seems to completely go away…so what gives?!?!

MOM'S JUST KNOW. 💁‍♀️
Choosing to remove a child’s toenail is not an easy one, but Mom had a feeling that it needed to go...AND SHE WAS RIGHT. Listen to their story (& watch the video if you dare 😨) PS...He didn't feel a thing. >> https://bit.ly/2rQmyYM

Neuromas are caused by the thickening of tissue around the nerves that lead into your toes. It’s the body’s way of trying to protect the nerve from injury. While we don’t fully understand what causes foot neuromas, doctors suspect the culprit is some kind of irritation, injury or unusual pressure on the nerve due to faulty biomechanics. That’s because it’s relatively common among patients who:

Have conditions like flat feet, bunions or hammertoes
Wear the wrong shoes like high heals or too-tight shoes
Play high-impact sports like running
Participate in sports that involve wearing tight shoes, like rock climbing or skiing
Women that are between age 40 – 60
