If you happen to have symptoms of claw toe, it is very important that you see a professional for an evaluation. There are certain tests that will have to be performed so that you can rule out any number of other disorders, including neurological issues that may be impacting the rest of your foot muscles, as they can start to cause imbalances that can bend your toes. Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will be happy to go over claw toe treatment and surgery in Smokey Point.
While there are a number of treatment options, claw toe deformities will usually be flexible in the beginning. Over time, the toes can start to harden in place and it can become uncomfortable and even painful at times. If you happen to have claw toe in the very early stages, our team may simply suggest that we use a splint or another device to help keep your toes in the proper position.
Some of the things that you can do on your own include wearing shoes that have toe boxes that are soft and roomy. You should also avoid wearing high heels and tight shoes during the treatment time. It can also be helpful to stretch your toe joints toward the normal position and exercise your does regularly using exercises that we suggest.
