Treating Hammertoe Deformities
Realigning the Joints & Eliminating Hammertoe
At the office of Dr. Ava Washko, we treat patients of all ages and strive to alleviate your symptoms or condition in the least-painful and invasive way possible. One of the conditions of the toes we treat is hammertoe, which is a deformity of the second, third, or fourth toe. It causes the toe to become bent in the middle joint. If the condition goes untreated, it may require surgery. You may also experience calluses or corns on the tip or joint of the toe.
Depending on your diagnosis, your options for treatment may include:
- Custom orthotic devices
- Re-alignment of the toes
- More comfortable footwear
- Corticosteroid injection therapy
There are many different causes of hammertoes, such as muscle imbalance or improperly fitting shoes. Whatever the cause may be in your case, you need to see a Houston podiatrist right away. Call us now at (832) 644-9798 to schedule a consultation!
