Re: Toe nail torn off when toe was stubbed

The nail is history. It will not reattach. For now, keeping it covered and protected is the right thing to do. A new nail will grow and gradually push off the remaining attachment of the old nail. If the pain is still there and you are concerned, you can see a doctor. I can't say how often a family doctor treats this, but podiatrists see this frequently.

Good luck.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
