http://www.advancedfootankle.com One of the common foot ailments we see are bunions and hammer toes. A bunion is a malalignment of the great toe joint. Hammer toes occur when there is a contracture of the joints of the lesser toes. Both of these foot ailments cause pain when the toes and joints rub in the shoes and the position puts excessive stress and strain on the ligaments, nerves, and soft tissue that surrounds the joints.
Mild bunion and hammer toe deformities may require wider shoes to avoid rubbing and pressure. Also, a custom orthotic may be needed to balance the joints and tendons, and this may halt or slow the progression of bunion and hammer toe deformation. More moderate and severe hammer toe deformities may require surgical correction. We offer comprehensive surgical correction for bunion and hammer toe deformities.
