Hammertoe Treatment in Warren, MI, Explained by Our Board-Certified Podiatrist

You may have noticed one or more of your toes are bent or curled over instead of the normal forward position. This occurs when one of the two joints of your toe is not held in the proper position by your foot’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments. In fact, hammertoe refers to an abnormal bend of the toe’s joint near the base, while mallet toe refers to a deformity in the joint closest to your toenail. Both hammertoes and mallet toes usually occur in the second or third toe. Our experienced podiatrist explains this condition and hammertoe treatment in Warren, MI, below.

Common Causes of Hammertoe

While genetics, nerve damage, or trauma to the foot can certainly be factors related to someone developing a hammertoe, this particular type of foot deformity is more likely caused by wearing poorly fitted footwear, such as high heels, or shoes that aren’t appropriate for the unique shape of your foot. Over time, moving your affected toe or the pressure from your regular activities may become difficult or painful. In addition, your bent toe continuously rubbing against the inside of your shoe can eventually cause painful calluses and corns to form.

Stop Feet Pain Fast Institute Offers Hammertoe Treatment in Warren, MI

Relief from the pain of walking around with a hammertoe is often just a matter of changing your footwear and using inserts to correctly position your toe in the right direction. We suggest that patients avoid high heels and instead shop for shoes with plenty of toe room. We also recommend trying on new shoes at the end of the day, when your feet are more likely to be swollen from your daily routine.

Our experienced podiatry team diagnoses hammertoes with a physical exam and x-rays. Patients with advanced cases of hammertoe where one or more toes are severely deformed may need to be treated with corrective surgery.
