A deformity of the fourth, third, or second toes in which the toe resembles a hammer as it is bent at the center joint is called hammertoe. Corns and calluses may occur on the effected toes on top of the middle joint, and patients may experience pain in their feet or toes. This condition is typically caused by muscle imbalances and ill fitting shoes. Doctors may treat hammertoe with strenghening and stretching toe exercises, commercially available cushions and non-medicated pads to treat symptoms, recommending shoes with roomy toe boxes, and in severe cases surgery to correct the deformity.
