Hammertoes, also called claw or mallet toes, refer to toes that are bent in an unnatural way. The offending toe or toes will begin to bend upward and, over time, can become stiff and unbendable. This stiffness can cause you discomfort and pain, creating corns and blisters where your toe rubs against your shoe. They are named after their resemblance to the hammers in a piano. At The Foot Doctors of Kansas City, we don’t want to just treat your foot problems; we want to educate you. Knowing more about the source of your foot pain or ankle pain is empowering and allows you to choose a treatment plan that is right for you.
If you may have signs of hammertoes, you should be evaluated by our Belton or Lee’s Summit podiatrist or another healthcare practitioner.
