Dealing with hammertoes and where to get help in Colorado Springs
Here’s what you should know about getting board-certifed Colorado Springs hammertoes treatment at Intermountain Foot & Ankle:
A hammertoe occurs when the toe’s middle joint pokes out and the toe buckles forming somewhat of a ‘hammer’ shape. The wearing of tight shoes can put pressure on the hammertoe and cause pain and discomfort. Hammertoes do not go away and require medical attention to fix the condition. Sometimes, corns may develop at the same location of the hammertoe. Treatments include:
- pads put on the toe to cover the buckled joint
- special footwear to accommodate for the hammertoe
If you suffer from hammertoes, you can get help from a podiatrist, a physician specifically trained to deal with medical issues affecting feet and ankles. Your podiatrist will sit down with you and discussions to manage and treat your condition.
