Hammer toe is an unpleasant deformity of joints in the toes, usually affecting the second, third, and fourth toe. The deformity causes the toe to bend to the side, sometimes overlapping the neighbor toe. This condition is generally caused by ill-fitting shoes. Women are greatly susceptible to developing hammer toe due to the use of high heels.
While not overly painful, hammer toe can cause discomfort. There are some solutions:
- Proper fitting shoes with a larger toe box area
- Physical therapy or orthopedic surgery
- Hammer toe support products
Hammer toe cushions are unique devices that help to separate toes, keeping them in a straight position, and stretching the muscles back into their original position. Hammer toe cushions, including the PediFix Hammer Toe Cushion, can help relieve pain felt in the tips of the bent toes, as well as in the pad of the foot. Additionally, the hammer toe cushion also prevents blisters and corns from abnormal rubbing against shoes.
Hammer toe cushions are simple and economical tools to provide relief, and correction assistance to discomfort related to hammer toe, claw toe, and mallet toe. They fit snuggly against the foot and do not impede wearing normal, practical shoes.
