Playing Woman’s Overgrown Toenails Kept Her from Walking!

The Doctors share a cautionary tale about the importance of tending to your toes

Watch: 7 of the Grossest Things The Doctors Have Ever Seen

We have shocking footage of a woman's toenails that were so overgrown they made walking impossible. The toenail problem was a result of a mobility issue and her toenails were neglected for years.

A podiatrist spent 25 minutes -- using heavy-duty clippers -- cutting the patient's toenails, which were inches long and prevented the woman from even bending down.

Toenails only grow 1 to 2 millimeters per month, and it is recommended to cut them every 6 to 8 weeks. Cutting your toenails after a shower can help as the warm water will soften the nail making it easier to trim.

Also, never cut your nails too short and too close to the sensitive nail bed. A good rule is, if you ever see blood from trimming your toe or fingernails, you are cutting them too close. This is problematic because trimming too short can lead to an infection or possibly an ingrown nail.
