Toe deformity

Toe deformities or a deformity of the toe occurs following a sudden onset traumatic injury involving a fracture ‘jamming of toe’ or dislocatoin. Toe deformities can develop gradually as in the case of a bunion.

There are also claw toes, mallet toe or hammer toe deformities. Untreated deformities can lead to joint problems at the knee or hip. Injury, muscle or nerve damage, congenital (muscular dystrophy) or poor fitting shoes can all be causes of toe deformity.
  • Hammer Toe

    Hammer Toe

    Hammer toe is a condition which causes one or more of the smaller toes to become bent upwards. The toe can be straightened but if ignored may become a permanent deformity.

  • Broken Toe

    Broken Toe

    Broken toes can be painful and usually occur as a result of severe impact or trauma to one of the phalanges bones which make up the toes although a stress fracture can occur gradually over time.

  • Dislocated Toe

    Dislocated Toe

    Dislocated toes usually occur from a direct trauma to the toe causing a severe sprain to the toe ligament with phalanges bones in the toe being displaced.

  • Toe Injuries & Toe Pain

    Toe injuries include ingrown toenail, black toenail, fractured or broken toe, dislocated toe, hallux rigidus and hammer toe.
