Hammer & Claw Toe

Experienced Care for Your Foot Health

Hammertoes, also called claw or mallet toes, refer to toes that are bent in an unnatural way. The offending toe or toes will begin to bend upward and, over time, can become stiff and unbendable. This stiffness can cause you discomfort and pain, creating corns and blisters where your toe rubs against your shoe. They are named after their resemblance to the hammers in a piano. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, turn to our trusted team for hammer and claw toe treatment in Moore and Edmond, OK.

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.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Hammertoes

Hammertoes are generally diagnosed using a physical exam and imaging tests such as an x-ray. Treatment options for hammertoes depend on what caused the condition, but generally, the pain from hammertoes can be mitigated by switching to more comfortable shoes, using pads or custom insoles that prevent friction, realigning the afflicted toes using splints or pads, and applying over-the-counter creams that provide relief from the pain associated with corns, blisters, or calluses.
