Do you have a toe that curls downward instead of pointing forward?
If so, you might have a hammertoe.
The most common cause of a hammertoe is a muscle or tendon imbalance that leads the toe to pull backward into an arched position over time. Hammertoes can also be caused by shoes that don’t fit properly or a previous injury. Hammertoes can also be genetic.
Many people with hammertoes have no problems, but if you’re experiencing pain, corns and calluses, open sores, or inflammation, it’s time to have a podiatrist take a look.
