How does a hammertoe and mallet toe differ?

Hammertoe and mallet toe are two different conditions that are actually quite similar in nature. It can be difficult to determine which ailment is affecting you, especially because both are most likely to affect your second toe.

Both conditions entail the toe bending down towards the floor, but a key distinction is where the bend can be found. When you have hammer toe, the bend is at the middle joint, resulting in the joint rising up. In a mallet toe situation, the toe is bent at the joint closest to the tip. Given the similarities, it should be no surprise that the cause for each ailment is similar. The most common culprit of these conditions is simply shoes that are too tight.
