Toe Deformities – Hammer, Claw and Mallet Toes

The most common cause of these toe deformities is a muscle/tendon imbalance in the toe that can lead to poor foot mechanics. In some cases the toe deformity can be hereditary, caused by a pre-existing foot condition or a result of trauma. Toe deformities can lead to pain, inflammation, corns, calluses and difficulty finding shoes that fit. Padding, orthotic devices and a change in footwear can help with these conditions.
