Are your toes bent or scrunched?

Foot conditions and injuries can have interesting names. Names like turf toe, athlete’s foot, pigeon toe and Morton’s neuroma. However, like anything else, there are specific reasons behind a name. The name hammertoe comes from the appearance of a bent and out of shape toe.

A hammertoe occurs when the toe bends at the middle joint of a toe. It commonly occurs in the second, third or fourth toes from a muscle imbalance. Frequently, this occurrence is a result of ill-fitting footwear. When your toes are held in a position for too long, they can tighten and become hard to stretch out. Hammertoes can cause consistent pain and development of corns, calluses and blisters.

There are two types of hammertoes – flexible and rigid. A flexible hammertoe can move at the joint, and a rigid hammertoe will presses the joint out of alignment. Dr. Marco Vargas, of Foot & Ankle Associates, has knowledge in treating hammertoes and its pain.

When you visit our podiatric office, Dr. Vargas will examine the problem area of your foot. From his examination, he will recommend a treatment option for you. Common treatment options for hammertoes includes, change in footwear, orthotics or shoe inserts. Depending on the severity and flexibility of your hammertoe condition, surgery may be a recommendation.
