The main cause of nail thickening is trauma – this may be caused by a serious and direct trauma (e.g. dropping a heavy item onto the toe), or repetitive micro-trauma (e.g. the nails repetitively tapping the top of a narrow pair of shoes). Other reasons for nail thickening and discolouration may include a fungal nail infection
Thickening of nails can make them difficult to cut, uncomfortable and sometimes unsightly. At Sydney Sports Podiatry, we can help by manually reducing the thickness of nails and assist in cutting, shaping and buffing the nail during a 30-minute general treatment appointment.
