Toenails are designed to protect the toes from injury and impact. However, toenails can become loose for many reasons. This condition often affects runners, tennis players, and other athletes. If you have a loose toenail, cut the nail back to avoid catching it on your footwear. The toe can also be bandaged to keep the nail in place. Check out this video to learn more about the causes and treatments of a loose toenail.
