06 May Hammer Toe – Claw Toe Deformity
A hammer toe occurs when the toes become bent at the first joint, raising the toe and making it more prominent. Often the raised toe will rub against the shoe. This can affect any number of the middle toes. In some cases, a bursa (rather like a deep blister) is formed over the joint and this can become inflamed (bursitis). With time, hard skin or corns can form over the joints or at the tip of the toe. These toe deformities can mean that extra stress is placed on the ball of your foot, which can lead to metatarsalgia.
