Posts for tag: hammertoe

Hammertoe exists as a deformity of the toe, which is acquired when your toe constantly rubs against your shoes. Because women often wear smaller-fitted shoes, hammertoe seems to occur more in women. One possible solution for hammertoe is surgery. One such surgery involves drilling in an implant, which will help grip the toe and hold the foot together. A hole is drilled by the surgeon, then the implant is inserted into the toe and clipped. Following the implant surgery, patients should be able to return to their normal lifestyles and go back to wearing regular shoes.

To successfully correct a hammertoe and relieve the symptoms associated it, medical assistance may be necessary. If you are seeking hammertoe treatment, consult with podiatrist one of our podiatrists of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Our doctors will provide you with quality treatment and assist you with all of your foot and ankle concerns.

Hammertoe

Hammertoe is 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.

A new procedure is making hammertoe recovery much easier for patients. Traditionally, healing hammertoe, a condition in which one or more of the toes are bent downward and frozen in an abnormal position, required time in rehabilitation and was often painful. Pins would be inserted surgically into the hammertoe to hold the joint in place. Now, a new device called the HammerLock2 is inserted into the bone before it is clipped back. The device, made of nitinol, then expands to fix the toe correctly in place. The implant allows for the patient to move his or toes much quicker than before and reduces the likelihood of improper healing.

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.
