Hammer toes

Retracted and curled up toes at the first phalanx joint namely the most distant one from the toe tip. They are responsible for corns formation on the "bony" tubercle. Musculus extensor malfunction would be the main cause of this disorder. Retracted toes at the second phalanx bone are called claw toes. This malformation, more than causing warts on "bony" tubercles, are usually more painful as they cause toe tips corns.

Main causes

  • High heel shoes
  • Pes cavus (cavus foot)
  • Depression of transverse arch
  • Too big and without support shoes like sandals and slippers

Care and Prevention

When the deformation is already present, it is important to prevent the joint stiffness. Toe extensor products and other types of protective products can help avoid deformation related complications. In the case when joint stiffness is already present, comfort cushions come in handy. Naturally, it is important to wear adapted shoes to avoid excessive pressure on the "bony" tubercles. Appropriate exercises can also keep some joint flexibility

Advise

If corns are painful and that you suffer from diabetes, consult a foot care specialist to set up a treatment plan fit to your needs.
