What is Hammertoe?
Hammertoes are a deformity characterized by an abnormal bend in the middle joint of one or more toes. This condition typically affects the second, third, or fourth toes. Visually, a hammertoe resembles a hammer or a claw, with the toe bending downward instead of pointing forward.1
People with hammertoes often experience discomfort due to the abnormal positioning of the toe. The top part of the bent toe might rub against shoes, leading to painful corns or calluses. Moreover, the unnatural bend can cause pain in the toe itself, especially when walking or wearing certain types of footwear.
