Hammertoe is a condition which develops over time. The good news is that when treated properly, hammertoe symptoms can managed with a non-invasive procedure and little to no downtime.
This picture compares a normal unstressed foot with one that has developed hammertoe.
Hammertoe occurs when the connective joints your toes bend. This abnormal bending may be caused by being flat footed or in some cases by wearing poorly fitted or pointy shoes which put pressure on your toes and cause the condition to develop over time.
While your condition may be mild at first, hammertoe can be a source of further foot issues without proper care.
Hammertoe is a progressive deformity and can lead to foot pain, calluses, and corns.
Hammertoe can lead to corns developing on top of your toes and calluses appearing on the balls of your feet because of the stress exerted on your toes now due to the change in the structure of your feet.
