What is Hammertoe

Posted by Administrator on 8/12/2015 to News

A hammertoe occurs from a muscle and ligament imbalance around the toe joint which causes the middle joint of the toe to bend and become stuck in this position. The most common complaint with hammertoes is rubbing and irritation on the top of the bent toe.

Toes that may curl rather than buckle -- most commonly the baby toe -- are also considered hammertoes.

Fungal and bacterial conditions -- including athlete's foot -- occur because the feet are usually enclosed in a dark, damp, warm environment. These infections cause redness, blisters peeling, and itching.
