Hammer Toe

Understanding Hammer Toes:

Hammer toes, also known as contracted toes, are a prevalent foot condition characterized by an abnormal bending of the toe joints. Primarily affecting the second, third, or fourth toes, this deformity can lead to discomfort, pain, and challenges in wearing suitable footwear. Contributing factors include genetics, ill-fitting shoes, and underlying foot deformities.

Comprehensive Treatment Options:

At Tooronga Podiatry, we offer a range of treatment options tailored to your specific condition and needs:

  • Conservative Approaches: In the early stages of hammer toes, non-invasive methods such as custom orthotics, suitable footwear recommendations, and exercises can help alleviate discomfort and prevent further progression.

  • Physical Therapy: Our skilled Podiatrsits create individualised exercise plans aimed at improving toe flexibility, strength, and overall foot health.

  • Splinting: Custom splints and devices can be used to help straighten the affected toes and relieve pressure.

  • Medication: Over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications can help manage pain and inflammation associated with hammer toes.

  • Surgical Solutions: For severe cases where conservative methods are insufficient, our experienced podiatric surgeons offer advanced surgical interventions to correct the toe deformity and restore proper alignment.
