What are Hammertoes?
A "Hammertoe" is a toe deformity condition where the middle toe joint is contracted. (Similar to Mallet Toe but, at a different joint).
The ligaments attached to the joint contract, and pull the middle (or what is called the second joint), up into a stiff, rigid position.
The toes become "hammered" due to an imbalance in the tension of ligaments and tendons on the top and bottom of the foot.
Once the toe joint position becomes rigid, corns can develop on the top to protect the joint from shoe pressure.
