Milwaukee Podiatrist Provides Treatment for Hammer Toe
Our Milwaukee Foot Specialist Explains Hammer Toe Causes and Treatment for Hammer Toe
Great Midwest Foot and Ankle’s top Milwaukee podiatrist provides hammer toe treatment to get you back on your feet faster! Hammer toe or mallet toe is a bent, claw-like toe which causes pain. Hammer toe can be congenital or it can develop over time. If your hammer toe has advanced over time it may be due to wearing ill-fitting shoes, nerve injuries from a stroke or diabetes, or it could be a result of a severely stubbed toe or broken toe. Often, hammer toe causes corns and calluses. It can also be so painful walking and wearing shoes becomes nearly impossible.
Our Milwaukee foot specialists utilize a multi-disciplinary approach for hammer toe treatment. When you arrive at one of our foot pain Milwaukee area clinics, you will receive a personalized consultation with one of our foot and ankle specialists. This consultation has a three pronged approach: We discuss and identify your hammer toe history and pain levels, as well as possible triggers. Second, we determine which treatment methods are best suited for the severity of your hammer toe (treatment may include physical therapy, a hammer toe splint, custom orthotics or surgery). Finally, our Milwaukee foot specialists will provide you with a list of things you can do at home to help ease and prevent hammer toe pain, such as gentle stretching, wearing insoles and ordering orthopedic shoes. If you have only recently began experiencing hammer toe, it is imperative to get in for treatment early to avoid surgery down the road.
