Claw Toe, Hammer Toe and Mallet Toe

Claw toe, Hammer Toe, and Mallet Toe are forms of toe deformities that are often considered to be the same condition, because they are similar to each other. Despite similarities, they are different conditions that have minor differences.

Hammer toe, mallet toe, and claw toe should not be taken lightly – the earlier they are diagnosed and treated, the more manageable and comfortable they are. If you are suffering from hammer toe, mallet toe, or claw toe consult with your podiatrist or orthopedic foot doctor to understand your corrective options.
