BV Foot Clinic: Keep Your Toes in Tip-Top Condition

                                                     Keep Your Toes in Tip-Top Condition

Ingrown toenails may seem insignificant; and in some cases, they are.  However, left untreated, at the very least, they usually cause pain, which may lead to limping; and if further neglected, they can even become infected, which is particularly serious for diabetics.   

So, why endure even a minuscule amount of suffering? In a simple, five-minute procedure, we can remove an ingrown nail, and get your toes back to tip-top condition!

BV Foot Clinic: Take a Break, for Feet's Sake

Take a Break, for Feet’s Sake

As you’re out doing all of your running around this season, don’t forget to be kind to your feet. One way to do that is to stay away from stilettos; and if you must wear them, try to reserve them for special occasions. Besides triggering corns, calluses, bunions, ingrown toenails, and hammertoes, they can also cause ankle sprains and breaks, stress fractures, tendinitis, ligament damage, and other foot problems. 

So, for the sake of your feet, give them a break once in awhile, and wear shoes with sensible heels so you can enjoy the holidays, pain-free, whether you’re shopping, caroling, going to parties, or just standing under the mistletoe.
