toenails on both big toes always broken

The outside corners of the toenails on my big toes are always broken apart from the rest of the nail. It can be quite painful at times, and the smaller broken portion of the nail is always getting caught on my sheets, socks, or anything else they come in contact with. I have tried to let them grow out, but they break on their own, end up getting caught on something and I have no choice but to remove the broken piece. Is there a name for this condition? How can it be treated? Thank you!

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
