Hammertoes


What are Hammertoes?

About Common Toe Conditions and Injuries

An inherited muscle imbalance, long toes or too-short shoes can make smaller toes buckle. Corns form when these toes rub against the tops of shoes.

Treatments:

Square, open toed, or prescription shoes may increase comfort. If corns keep growing back and are painful, surgery may be advised.
