Hammertoes and mallet toes are deformities of the feet due to imbalances in the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the digits, often caused by wearing restrictive footwear over prolonged periods of time. This results in pain and discomfort as well as reduced mobility. Thankfully, mallet toe and hammertoe treatments are available. At his practice, the Associated Foot Care Clinic, Culver City foot doctor J. Leonard Knudson offers hammertoe and mallet toe treatment to relieve the pain and restore proper foot function and mobility.
Mallet Toe and Hammertoe Treatment for Brentwood Patients
Those with hammertoe and mallet toe in the Brentwood, West Los Angeles, Malibu and Southern California areas can receive treatment from Culver City podiatrist Dr. Knudson.
Mallet toe and hammer toe are characterized by crooked toes.
Hammertoes involve abnormal bend in the middle joint of a toe.
Mallet toes affect the joint closest to the toenail.
These are exacerbated by the type of shoes worn as well as innate foot structure and trauma as well as certain diseases.
Treatment for this entail relieving the pain and pressure by changing footwear and using foot inserts. Pain medication may be necessary during this process.
For severe cases of hammertoe and mallet toe, surgical intervention may be performed to correct the misalignment of the digits.
