Toe deformities can come in various forms and can be caused by different things. The most common type of toe deformity is a hammertoe, which is when your toe bends at the joint and becomes stuck in that position. This can be caused by wearing shoes that are too tight, or by an injury to the toe. Other types of toe deformities include bunions, which are when the joint at the base of your big toe sticks out, and mallet toes, which are similar to hammertoes but happen at the joint at the end of your toe. Some toe deformities are genetic, while others develop over time due to wear and tear on the joints. Treatment for toe deformities varies depending on the severity of the deform. We treat all types of toe deformities.
