Hammertoes

Hammertoe is a condition where the second, third, or fourth toe, is bent at the middle joint, overlapping the toe(s) next to it. It is caused by improperly fitting shoes and problems with the toe muscles.

Those with hammertoe often have corns or calluses on the middle or tips of their toes. It is usually difficult to find properly fitted shoes due to deformity.

Treatments include wearing softer, properly fitted shoes, physical therapy exercises, straps, cushions, and corn pads.

In severe cases, surgery may be required to reposition the toe(s).

The sooner hammertoe is correctly treated, the better. For more information on hammertoes, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (630) 990-9500 (Villa Park) or (847) 294-9600 (Des Plaines)!
