Clawed toes (or Hammer toes) is a foot deformity where the toes start to bend/curl. The little toes (i.e all toes except the big toe) consist of 3 tiny bones and 2 joints. When these joints start to bend it results in a hammer or clawed toe. The condition is generally treatable.
Hammer toes can lead to the development of corns or calluses at either the top of the toe or at the tip of the toe. If left untreated, they can turn rigid and tendons can lose almost all of their function. Therefore, it is imperative to seek professional help from a Chiropodist/Podiatrist as soon as possible.
The treatment for clawed toes varies based on the severity of the condition.
