Hammertoe Treatment

Award-Winning Bethesda, MD, & Springfield, VA, Podiatrist For Hammertoes

Hammertoe Foot Surgeon Bethesda MD & Springfield VAHammertoes, which people often call mallet or claw toes, refers to toes that bend in unnatural ways. Ever seen the felt hammers in a piano? Long ago, somebody noticed the resemblance. Over time, hammertoes begin to bend upward, resulting in painful stiffness – until you may not even be able to bend them at all. Where the toes rub against your shoe, you may form miserable corns and blisters that burn.

Allow us to educate you and provide you with expert knowledge that will empower you to make the right choice when it comes to deciding on a treatment plan for hammertoes.

Hammertoes Most Common Causes

Contracted toe muscles make a toe begin to curl. Many conditions can cause hammertoe muscle contractions, but these represent the most frequent culprits:

  • Wearing high heels or narrow-toed shoes for long periods
  • Foot structure issues from the time of birth
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Cerebral palsy, degenerative disc diseases or strokes
  • Having to lay bedridden over long periods
  • Lack of feeling that diabetes often causes in the feet
  • Breaking or dislocating the toe or experiencing “jamming” injuries.

Regardless of what caused your tight and painful toes, Podiatrist, Dr. Ross is ready to create a custom hammertoe treatment plan for you that addresses your pain’s root cause and ends the pain forever. He won’t rest until your feet feel happy again.
