Both can occur when the plate is separated from the underlying bed. ...Read more

Microtrauma: Your toenail is most likely being bruised because of how your big toe functions. You get too much pressure on the toe and it traps the nail bed between the hard nail and the bone, causing a bruise. There is a solution for this which involves rebalancing the mechanics of your foot. There are many podiatrists in your area that can help. I have offices in McKinney and Prosper, TX. ...Read more
