Our Dallas and Plano, TX, foot doctor offers expert treatment for various foot conditions, including hammertoes and claw toes. These deformities are often the result of genetics and can be exacerbated by wearing the wrong kinds of shoes, especially for women.
Women’s footwear often includes pointy-toed high heels, which can create issues in the structure of the foot. Claw toes occur when when the toe joints closest to your ankle point up, whereas hammertoes result in toes that curl or bend downward, instead of pointing forward. These deformities can cause the joints of your toes to rub uncomfortably against the inside of your shoe. When the condition progresses, your toes may become stiff and inflexible. If you suspect that you have or may be developing claw toes or hammertoes, we can help you with treatment and advice on shoes that may be better for your particular foot structure.
