There are many non-surgical treatment options available for hammertoes that include:

  • Changes in shoe gear to a shoe that provides more room at the front of the shoe or toe box to relive any pressure on the toes.

  • Custom orthotic devices can also be used to correct any biomechanical abnormality and help correct any muscle imbalance.

  • Padding along with sharp debridement of the corns and calluses can help alleviate any pressure and or pain, associated with the hammertoe deformity and also slow the progression of the calluses.

  • Medications such a non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (Motrin, Aleve, Advil etc.) can be used to help reduce and pain or inflammation.

  • Corticosteroid injections are also used to help ease pain and inflammation caused by hammertoe.

  • Strapping and splinting the toes can also be used to place the toes in correct alignment to help from pain associated with the toes rubbing onto shoe gear.

However, if all conservative treatment fail and the toes are ridged surgery is also an option to correct the deformity. If you feel you may have a hammertoe or are experiencing pain associated with hammertoes don't hesitate to call us here at Atlantic Foot and Ankle where our podiatric physicians will be happy to evaluate your hammertoes and discuss treatment options with you. Please visit any of our five locations, Savannah, Hinesville, Statesboro, Claxton, or Bluffton and speak with our podiatrists to create a treatment plan perfectly suited to you and your needs.
