Toenail Trauma for Trainor

Less than a week ago, pop star Meghan Trainor took to Instagram and Twitter to let her fans know about her most recent traumatic experience, stating:

@Meghan_Trainor: Mood 😦 Rip big beautiful toe nail.

Several days later, Trainor revealed the real story behind the surgical shoe snap, stating her big toenail had accidentally ripped off when her foot got caught under a chair after standing up too quickly. It’s an occurrence our podiatrists at Associated Podiatrists PC are all-too-familiar with, as they deal with toenail removals caused by acute trauma on a weekly basis.

Often the outcome of a blow to the nail (or as Trainor puts it, “a freak accident”), traumatic nails commonly result in the tearing or splitting of the toenail and/or formation of blood underneath, known as a subungual hematoma.

Thankfully, based on Trainor’s Instagram photo, the singer has already sought treatment for her injured toenail, and hopefully, will be following up with a podiatrist to ensure that the nailbed is healing properly and to prevent future infection(s) from occurring.
