This can lead to pain, irritation, and corn formation on top of the toe. If you suffer from hammertoes in Corsicana, TX, turn to the award-winning podiatrists at Family Foot & Ankle Centers.
Knowledge Is Key

A toe begins to curl in when the muscles contract. 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
Your treatment plan depends on the severity of your hammertoe. Some of the most effective hammertoe solutions include a combination of:
- Padding/cushioning the toes
- Prescription anti-inflammatory medication
- Custom foot orthotics
- Shoes with extra depth to accommodate the hammertoes and prevent irritation
- Hammertoe crest pads
More complex or rigid hammertoes may require surgical correction. At Family Foot and Ankle Centers, we specialized in minimally invasive surgery for our Corsicana location patients. This allows you to heal faster and get back to regular activities as quickly as possible.
