Toenail Cutting

Toenail cutting is particularly useful for the elderly or frail, who may have difficulty in managing their own feet.

Patients with high risk conditions should take particular care in cutting their own toenails because of the increased risk involved and should seek help from a professional chiropodist.

Toenail cutting by a professional
