Hammertoes

What is it?

Any toe that is bent or bending – but usually this condition involves the 2nd through 5th toes.

Mild Hammertoes are flexible, which means the joints can still bend. The more advanced deformity is called rigid.

Symptoms:

  • Pain with shoe pressure
  • Corn formation on the toe
  • Redness or swelling of the toe
  • Restricted or painful motion of the toe

Hammertoe Treatment Options:

  • Non-medicated padding
  • Shoes with a deep toe box
  • Avoiding high-heel or tight shoes
  • We can help advise you on shoe selection
  • For some deformities we can apply padding or taping
  • Orthotics can help to balance muscle pull on your toes
  • Hammertoe surgery by your Cincinnati podiatrist can straighten the toes and is the option saved for last in most cases

I’ve been to 4 orthopedic surgeons very highly recommended however they didn’t help me since July [4 months]! I broke my ankle. I am so thrilled to have found Dr Kristin Titko, she has been the ONLY doctor that I feel can help me! I have faith in her.
