Help for Hammertoes
Do your toes hurt when wearing shoes?
Have you developed hard painful calluses on the tops of your toes?
You may be suffering from a condition called hammertoes. Hammertoes occur due to a contracture of the small joints in the toe which causes friction to these joints when wearing shoes.When the top of the toe repeatedly rubs against the shoe a corn develops.
Conservative treatment for hammertoes consists of wider shoes, padding and injection therapy. If these conservative measures do not reduce the pain, surgical intervention may be necessary.
So, if you're experiencing painful hammertoes or corns, schedule an appointment today, so that we can eliminate your pain.
