With a 99.9% success rate, we at Footcare Place can guarantee that you will never suffer from ingrown toenails again. Our “Let Your Toenails Prevail” signature procedure gets to the root of the problem so you can have immediate relief and return to your normal daily activities.
An ingrown toenail is when the nail is curved downward and grows into the skin, usually at the nail borders (the sides of the nail). This irritates the skin, often resulting in pain, redness, swelling, and warmth in the toe.
If an ingrown nail causes a break in the skin, bacteria may enter and result in an infection, which is often marked by the expression of a yellow, white, brown or green fluid and a foul odour.

Ingrown toenails – causes, symptoms, treatment and prevention.
Fungal toenails is a common problem that can affect people of all ages. A fungus is a microorganism that lives in warm, moist areas.
Fungal toenails often begins as an infection in the skin called Tinea Pedis (also known as athlete’s foot). The fungus often starts under the toenail fold at the end of the toenail. Over time, it grows underneath the toenail and changes its appearance with a yellow or brownish discoloration.

Fungal nails – the prevention and treatment.
Heel pain usually occurs when the structure of the foot cannot sufficiently support the person’s weight, causing the bottom band of tissue in the foot, called the plantar fascia, to become inflamed. In some cases, heel pain may lead to the formation of a heel spur.
Conditions that can place tension on the plantar fascia and lead to heel pain include:
- Flexible flat feet
- High-arched feet
- Tight Achilles tendon
- Weight gain or excess weight
- High impact sports
Treatments such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and cortisone injections may mask the pain without correcting the underlying foot problem. As a result of the numerous cases of heel pain related conditions we see, our team has created a unique comprehensive treatment plan which centres around two main procedures – orthotics and foot mobilization technique (FMT). We are so confident with this treatment approach that we have created a video that allows you to see exactly how this combination of orthotics and FMT will help permanently solve your heel pain problems.
