http://www.austinfootandankle.com Hammertoe is a structural deformity in the toes often caused by high heels and shoes that are too small. It is a musculoskeletal imbalance that leads to elevated, boney toes that cause a lot of pain. It addition to causing calluses, corns and discomfort, hammertoe can lead to infection. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes with enough room to wiggle your toes freely. If your feet hurt, it’s time to call an experienced podiatrist like Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS. This condition will worsen over time and make the recovery longer than necessary. If you are experiencing foot pain and think it could be plantar hammertoe, give the Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists a call at 512-328-8900 for more information.
