Hammertoes and mallet toes are usually the consequence of years of foot abuse—smashing your feet into shoes that do not provide enough room for toes to lie flat and spread. If left untreated, tendons and ligaments may shorten, making the abnormal bend permanent. To provide pain relief, surgery may seem the only option left for hammertoe treatment.
Types of Hammertoe Surgery
A number of procedures may help to correct hammertoes, such as:
- Releasing (cutting) the ligament to allow the toe to lie flat
- Removing bone from the toe joint
- Grafting toes together to create a permanent splint
The type of surgery indicated may be determined by the severity of the toe deformity and which toe is affected.
Alternative Hammertoe Treatment
Unfortunately, some people experience an unsuccessful hammertoe surgery that fails to correct the bend and/or provide pain relief. Even if surgery is successful, people still face a lengthy recovery period. You can avoid the complications, risks, inconvenience and expense of surgery for hammertoe treatment by investing in the right shoes.
- An extra wide toe box
The roomy toe box allows toes to lie flat and spread and prevents friction between hammertoes and the shoe’s upper construction.
- A spring-loaded heel
The impact reduction provided by the coil system minimizes the forces on toes that push them forward into the toe box.
- A forefoot rocker bottom
The rocker sole speeds the foot through the toe-off stage of the gait cycle to minimize time pressure rests on toes.
