Hammertoes are typically passed from one person to the next through genetics. In many cases, having excessively tight muscles and tendons that connect the toes to the foot will cause the foot to bend over.
Many people that have hammertoes will complain about pain when wearing shoes. Depending on the cause and severity of the case, a simple change of footwear or daily toe exercises may aid in pain relief. For others, hammertoes may require a less conservative approach.
Alternative conservative options are always considered but in some cases surgery may be required. Dr. Marco Vargas specializes in surgical procedures of the foot and ankle. Being an expert in surgery, you can rest assured that your feet are in good hands.
