What are Hammertoes

Hammertoe is a deformity of the second, third, or fourth toe in which it bends downward at the middle joint. This condition causes pain when wearing shoes and walking as it puts extra stress on the toe. Fortunately, treatment options are available from your local podiatrist at Metropolitan Foot Care.

How Can Metropolitan Foot Care Help Me?

Metropolitan Foot Care has several ways to address hammertoe issues. Non-invasive treatments such as custom orthotics and padding can reduce pain by providing cushioning between the toes and shoe. Splints may be used overnight to straighten the affected toe when worn regularly. Surgery is also an option for more severe cases of hammertoe; however, this should only be done after all non-invasive treatments have failed.
