What is a Morton's Toe??
Second and third toes longer than your big toe? If you answer "yes"... you have what's called Morton's Toe.
This condition was named by an American orthopaedic surgeon, Dudley Joy Morton (1884–1960). Another common name for the condition is "Greek Toe".
With an estimated 10% of the world population having this long toe, it is more common than you may have expected.
What Causes a Morton's Toe?
This hereditary condition has been passed down to the next generation for centuries, even as far back as 305 BC.
X-rays show the second metatarsal bone of the second toe is longer than in a "normal" foot.
