Q
Are there any home treatments for hammer toes?

A

You see your feet every day and examine your toes every day and wonder, how can I treat these painful toes?  Although there may be over-the-counter pads that may alleviate some of the pain from rubbing up against your shoe or against each other, there are no home remedies to treat hammer toes.  You may see plastic or metallic braces or elastic holders for sale at the drug store, and they may hold your toes straight temporarily.  However the only way to permanently treat hammer digits is to with a comprehensive plan by one of the doctors at our office. Our physicians will do a thorough exam, including on site digital x-rays, and come up with treatment options.  So don't stare at your toes every day wondering how to treat them - contact us and make an appointment at our office.
