Nail Bracing for Ingrown Toenails

  Nail bracing is a pain-free nail correction treatment used to improve the shape of curled and ingrown nails and reduce the discomfort caused by the excessive curvature of the nail. It can also help reduce the risk of future toe infections as well as the need for more invasive procedures.

Treatment recommendation - every 8-10 weeks until the desired nail shape is achieved.

We use the Onyfix brace and are one of the few Podiatrists in the UK providing this treatment.

Onyfix brace is not suitable if you have an infected toe, or if the nail is fungal or detached from the nail bed.
