Can I get mallet toe a second time?

Yes, one of the complications of mallet toe treatment is the possibility of acquiring the condition again after the successful correction of the problem a first time. While this recurrence is usually slow to develop, there are many preventative measures that can be utilized to stop the deformity from developing again. Wearing supportive shoes and pads will help to keep the bones in the correct alignment. Also, purchase shoes with a wide toe box and low heel.
In addition to the slow redevelopment of the condition, many people have experienced the return of a mallet toe from trauma to the foot. The initial appearance of the condition can weaken the structure of the toe and open the way for simple injuries to aid in the development of mallet toe a second time. There are also toe stretches and exercises that have been shown to be effective in reducing the risk of acquiring this condition again.
If you’re worried that your mallet toe is starting to form once more, it is always best to seek treatment quickly in order to avoid as much pain as possible. If you have any concerns, contact our Sugar Land office or schedule an appointment online
