Hammer Toes

Disorders Hammer-Toe.jpgAlthough claw toes, hammer toes, and mallet toes are technically different, they behave and look similarly.

Women are more likely to get pain associated with hammer toes than men because of the types of shoes they wear, but it is not only a female problem.  Hammer toes can be a serious problem in people with diabetes or poor circulation. People with these conditions should see a doctor at the first sign of foot trouble.
