Re: 15mth old bruised big toe

As I can't see the problem, anything I suggest may not be exact.

If the nail is not causing any throuble for now, I suggest leaving it alone. If there is a snagged edge, try cutting it or filing it so it is not a problem. Nails in an adult take approximately 1 year to regrow from beginning to end. In a toddler, it will likely be much faster than that. Usuually the new nail will pusht he old nail off.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
