Hammer Toe Definition

A hammertoe is a condition in which the toe buckles, causing the middle joint of the affected toe to poke out. This condition is often aggravated by tight-fitting shoes that put pressure on the hammertoe. Often a corn develops at this site. Treatment for hammertoes may include:

  • Applying a toe pad specially positioned over the bony protrusion
  • Changing your footwear to accommodate the deformed toe
  • Surgical removal
