Heel Spur Syndrome / Plantar Fasciitis - Does it look like you are 100 years old stepping out of bed in the morning or after standing up after lunch? Are you miserable after being active all day? We treat these conditions on a regular basis and can usually resolve them 90% of the time without surgery.
I’m sure your parents, grandparents, well meaning friend or even family doctor meant well when they told you some of the following stories but unfortunately they are not true. Cutting your nail straight across or notching a V in the end does absolutely nothing in contributing to how a nail grows or fixing an ingrown nail. Wearing bad shoes as a kid, high heels, running barefoot or playing a lot of sports like “high school football” did not contribute to most of the bony foot deformities you have now and later in life. These are simply due to genetics, biomechanics, time and mileage.
