Hammer Toes

A hammer toe, also called a rotated toe, is a condition in which the toe exhibits an abnormal bend in the middle joint. Usually caused by wearing ill fitting shoes, it often affects the toe next to the big toe. The affected toe may be painful or difficult to move, and may subsequently develop corns or calluses. If you believe you have a hammer toe, schedule an appointment with a physician at the Cleveland Foot & Ankle Clinic to develop a treatment plan.
