Should your condition still be in early stages, there is a decent chance that we can halt the progression of this toe deformity. At this point, conservative treatments include exercises to strengthen and stretch the affected toe muscles. Changing your footwear to styles that allow your toes to be in their natural position and using custom orthotics or pads will relieve pain and pressure in the area.
In the event that your toe deformity has existed for a while and conservative treatment options are not providing the desired pain relief or mobility, then we may recommend surgery. When this option is placed on the table, we will discuss it so you understand exactly what to expect. Typically, the goal of the procedure is to straighten out your toe by releasing tendons or removing pieces of bone.
