What Are Hammertoes?

washington heights queens ny foot-doctor for hammertoe treatmentHammertoes get their name from the way the afflicted toes curve upward into a stiff, unmovable shape that looks similar to the hammers on a piano. In addition to discomfort caused by the condition itself, people with hammertoes often develop painful blisters and corns as the toes repeatedly rub against the inside of their shoes.

What Causes Hammertoes?

Though toes can curve naturally due to muscle contractions, these contractions can become permanent as a result of:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Neurological conditions such as degenerative disc disease, cerebral palsy, or stroke
  • Structural issues in the foot
  • Wearing narrow-toed or high-heeled shoes for a long period of time
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Prolonged bed rest
  • Acute injuries such as a broken, jammed, or dislocated toe

Symptoms Of Hammertoes

Though the most notable symptom of hammertoes is the toe’s signature hammer shape, patients may also report suffering from difficulty walking, corns and calluses, and an inability to wiggle their toes or flex their foot.

How To Diagnose Hammertoes

Hammertoes are generally diagnosed using a physical exam and imaging tests such as an x-ray.

Non-Surgical Treatments For Hammertoes

Treatment options for hammertoes depend on what caused the condition, but generally the pain from hammertoes can be mitigated by switching the patient to more comfortable shoes, encouraging the use of pads or custom insoles that prevent friction, realigning the afflicted toes using splints or pads, and applying OTC creams that provide relief from pain associated with corns, blisters, or calluses.
