Hammer & Claw Toe

Become Pain-Free With Help From Our Experienced Team

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 New West Podiatry, we don’t want to just treat your foot problems; we want to educate you. Knowing more about the source of your foot pain is empowering and allows you to choose a hammer and claw toe treatment in Levittown and New York, NY, that is right for you.

The Most Frequent Causes of Hammertoes

A toe begins to curl in when the muscles contract. This contraction of the muscle can be caused by many things, but the most common causes of hammertoes are:

  • Frequent wearing of high-heeled or narrow-toed shoes
  • A foot structure issue present since birth
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Stroke, cerebral palsy, or degenerative disc disease
  • Being bedridden for a long period of time
  • A lack of feeling in your feet, often caused by diabetes
  • Injury to your toe such as a break, dislocation, or jam

No matter the cause of your painfully tight toes, our expert podiatrists are ready and able to create a custom hammertoe treatment plan suited to your unique needs. The goal of our foot doctors is to address the root cause of your pain and make that pain stop forever. We are only satisfied when your feet are pain-free.
