Toe Deformities Treatment in Adelaide
Toe deformities can occur due to many different reasons, such as bone deformities, congenital disabilities, strokes, conditions that affect ligaments and tendons, etc
You might notice that some toes on your feet are shaped differently from others. The four small toes on your foot are called the phalanges, and the big toe is called the Hallux. Toe deformities can be present on any of the toes.
Very commonly, we might notice that one of our toes, especially ones ranging from 2nd to 5th toe, is curled.
Some common deformities of the toes include hammer toe, claw toe, and mallet toe and ingrown toe nail. These toes are recognized by which small bones of the toes are curling.
Toe deformities may cause people difficulty finding the correct shoes to wear. Commonly, toe deformities such as hammer toes lead to constant rubbing and friction in shoes leading to callus, corn, cracked heels, and sometimes infections.
Toe deformities may also affect the way you walk. That’s why at Keep Me Walking Podiatry in Adelaide, we can diagnose and help to treat any issues that are caused due to deformities in the toes.
