Hammer & Claw Toe Treatment in Auburn, AL
Eliminate the Discomfort & Enjoy a Pain-Free Lifestyle
Hammertoes, which are also known as claw or mallet toes, refer to toes that are bent in an unnatural way and are named after their resemblance to the hammers in a piano. The abnormal toe or toes will begin to bend upward and, over time, can become stiff and unbendable. This stiffness can cause discomfort and pain, and create corns and blisters where your toe rubs against your shoe. For hammer and claw toe treatment in Auburn, AL, turn to the 5-star-rated care at Auburn Foot Care Center.

Common Causes of Hammertoes
When the muscle in a toe contracts, the toe begins to curl in. 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
- An injury to your toe – such as a break, dislocation, or jam
