What Are Bunions?
What Are Hammertoes?
Just as the joint of the big toe can move out of place, the other toes can also suffer from bending of the joint that can move these toes out of position. This can lead to serious discomfort when wearing some types of shoes. Hammertoes are usually caused by an imbalance in the pressure between muscles and tendons in the foot. Corns and calluses between toes or appearing on the ball of the foot are often the first sign of hammertoes in our patients.
Treatment Options for Bunions and Hammertoes
In some cases, wearing specialized footwear or taking medications can relieve the pain associated with bunions and hammertoes. Foot & Ankle Restoration can also provide customized orthotics solutions that will readjust the position of joints to offer some relief. If your bunions or hammertoes cause severe problems with mobility, however, we may recommend surgical options to resolve these problems on a more permanent basis.
