Hammer Toes

When your toes begin to curl in at the middle toe joint, this could be the early stages of a hammer toe or clawed toe and it can affect people of every age and gender.

What’s the cause?

It can be caused by a variety of reasons, but more often than not it is related to a muscular imbalance and the person’s foot-type, such as over-pronation and over-supination, therefore genetics are involved to some extent. Injury to the toe joints and wearing ill-fitting footwear can also be contributing factors to long-term pain and discomfort, which can start to negatively impact your life.
