Caring Sole offers a wide range of foot care services. Our specialized foot services include:
Treatment of Ingrown Toenails
An ingrown toenail is something that everyone wants to avoid. This is a severely painful condition characterized by either or both ends of the toenail digging into the surrounding skin and flesh. This further leads to inflammation and can cause infection. If untreated, the condition can prove serious for diabetic patients and patients with impaired circulation. At Caring Sole, we either trim down or remove the excess part of the nail through a minor surgical procedure.
Treatment of Fungal Nails
Also known as onychomycosis, fungal infection of toenail can lead not only to the general discomfort, but also embarrassment. The disease is characterized by gradual discoloration of the toenail. Other symptoms include swelling, thickening or crumbling of the nail, yellowing, spots or streaks on the nail and complete loss of the nail in some cases. Our specialists have extensive experience with such cases and ensure that your treatment is carefully supervised.
Treatment of Corns and Calluses
Corns and calluses are nothing but a compact, protective layer of dead skin cells. Corns and calluses are the resultant of regular friction between the skin and the bony area or any other irregularity or bump in the shoe. Usually, corns are formed on the toes while calluses grow on the soles of feet. Additional friction and pressure can burn and be quite painful. At Caring Sole, we assess the condition of corns and calluses and offer the treatment based on the severity of the condition.
Nail Bracing for Ingrown Nails
One of the most popular treatments for ingrown toenails is a nail bracing. It is gentle and non-surgical option that corrects the overall shape of the deformed nail while reducing the pressure on the nail bed and alleviating the pain. This also reduces the formation of callous in the sulcus or nail groove due to excessive pressure. This treatment is incision free, thus require no local anesthesia, making it a perfect treatment option for younger patients. Besides, this treatment is a perfect solution for people with medical conditions that restrict them from undergoing surgeries such as individuals with diabetes.
