Hammer Toe Treatment
What are Hammer Toes?
A hammer toe is a name given to people who have a toe deformity where the toe is bent up and its usually in the middle toes. Treatment is available for this deformity and it should be acted immediately before it becomes permanent. Hammer toe can develop when you have pressure on the toes and especially muscle imbalance on the tendons/joints. One example is wearing shoes that do not fit properly and causes muscle imbalance.
Treatment for Hammer Toe
A hammer toe can be treated if treated early. Your doctor will recommend you to choose between a nonsurgical or surgical plan for treatment. A nonsurgical includes wearing comfortable shoes, wearing foot gear, and do specific exercises to get your foot back in shape. Surgical treatment may include tendon transfer, lengthening and arthrodesis. Patients with flexible toe joint will benefit from this condition and help push toes to straight position.
