OUR TOE NAILS.
Our nails are not as important to us in every day life as they used to be since we have started to wear footwear.
Their main purpose was to protect the end of our toes from damage and to assist in picking things up with.
Since we became fashion aware and produced harsh surfaces for us to walk on it became necessary to protect our feet with footwear so the nails became less functional but more prone to damage inside the footwear. This has probably meant they need more constant attention.
Nail care is something that as podiatrists we deal with on a daily basis and feet are always nore comfortable when nails are well kept.
