Hammertoes are a common condition characterized by an abnormal bend in one or more toes. This condition is often caused by wearing ill-fitting shoes that compress the toes, but can also be due to genetic factors or certain medical conditions. If left untreated, hammertoes can lead to pain, difficulty walking, and the development of corns or calluses.
Treatment for hammertoes may include wearing properly fitting shoes with a roomy toe box, using orthotic devices or toe splints to realign the toes, or performing exercises to strengthen the affected muscles. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the deformity and relieve pain.
