Dr. Neuhaus Gives Tips to Soccer Parents in Murfreesboro Post

In an article published on Tuesday, October 1st in the Murfreesboro Post, "Doctor offers foot care tips for soccer parents", Dr. Neuhaus of Neuhaus Foot and Ankle offered advice to soccer parents on caring for their children's feet during the soccer season and how to avoid and care for ingrown toenails.

Ingrown toenails can develop during soccer season due to tightly fitting cleats, repetitive kicking, and improper nail trimming, and it is important that parents take ingrown nails seriously and have them treated appropriately.

If your child has developed an ingrown toenail that shows signs of infection, take him/her to a podiatrist for an evaluation and treatment. A podiatrist can treat ingrown toenails easily by removing the ingrown portion of the nail. The procedure usually only takes about ten minutes, and it is very effective.

To help prevent ingrown nails from occurring in the first place, make sure your child trims his or her toenails properly, which means in a straight line, and make sure the nails are not trimmed too short. Also, make sure the cleats your child is wearing fit properly, and check your child's footwear often throughout the season. Children's feet can grow quickly and it is possible that your child may need to change shoe sizes during the season at some point.

For more information on ingrown nails and children's foot care or to set up an appointment with the Neuhaus Foot and Ankle office, give us a call at (888) 713-0906 or contact us online.
