2.6.14_ToeWhisperer.jpgGary Williams is a special kind of foot doctor. He’s the guy models go to when the fashionable but uncomfortable shoes they often wear cause them to develop bunions, hammertoes, nerve conditions, and more. His skill has made his business extremely popular, and his clients often refer to him as “the Toe Whisperer.”

When working with a model, Williams will often try to get them to improve their everyday shoe-wearing habits like their posture and their pronation. He recommends exercises for them to do and may retrain them if they have a serious problem with walking. "I can make them function but if you try to look fashionable all the time, you will pay a price,” he said. “If you use your body badly, you will reap the problems that come with it over time."

Hammertoes are painful deformities that often result from excessive use of high heeled shoes. If you are dealing with foot pain and suspect that you have a hammertoe, contact podiatrist Dr. Michael A. Stein, DPM of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein will diagnose your condition and present you with a wide array of possible treatment methods to choose from.

Hammertoe

Hammertoe is little-known a painful condition that affects the second, third and fourth toes involving different joints of the toe and foot. Hammertoe can be caused by many other conditions such as RA (rheumatoid arthritis), osteoarthritis, trauma or injuries to your foot, it can be hereditary and it can also be caused by a cerebral vascular accident. If you wear shoes that are too narrow or short for your feet, it may exacerbate any pain you already have.

It is really important to your overall well-being to seek out medical attention at the first signs of foot pain or anything that may hinder your ability to walk in a normal manner. Taking care of your feet is one of the first steps to being able to live a full and healthy life.
