Hammer Toes

Your little toes help to balance and propel your body when you move. As you foot flattens, the little toes bend to grip the ground. Then they straighten, acting like levers to help push your foot so you can walk, run or dance. But if the front of your foot is wide, you may develop a problem known as hammer toe. Hammer toes are little toes that buckle or curl under. Over time, these toes may hurt and make movement more difficult. But you don’t have to live with pain. With you doctor’s help, even severe hammer toes can usually be treated so you can move more easily.
