A theory presented by End Of Gout Review Robert Baran showed that the black color of the nail is also termed as 'frictional melanonycia' because it usually occurs due to physical stimuli like rubbing, directly to the proximal nail apparatus and triggers melanocytic activation. This activation imparts the black color to the toenail. Addison's disease is another common condition causing hyperpigmentation of the toenail. it occurs because of the increased levels of melanocyte stimulating hormone levels. This hormone stimulates the cells which impart black color to the nail. The diagnosis of this nail condition is complex. This is due to the fact that a melanoma (cancer) of the nail can have a similar appearance to other, less serious conditions, so a thorough examination including a proper medical history, should be taken at the onset, detailing the progression and timing of the pigmentation. Progressing pigmentation provides a clue to whether the blackening is caused by a melanoma. A definitive diagnosis lies on the histopathological examination of a biopsy sample taken from the nail. The treatment of black toenail in these conditions is dictated by the causing factor. A recent method for using acoustic shock waves in treatment of medical conditions, focuses on an emergent technology which revolves around the commercialization of noninvasive biological response activating devices for regenerative medicine. The patent involves treatments that are characterized by acoustic shock waves that with the accurate measure of energy dose and timing can cause the stimulation of growth vectors in both bone and blood vessel formations which will accelerate the body's natural healing processes. This can be particularly useful in the treatment of orthopedic conditions such as tendinitis (Characterized by joint inflammation and pain), osteoporosis (characterized by brittle bones accompanied with increased risk of fracture) and actual bone stress.
