Claw Toes

People often blame the common foot deformity claw toe on wearing shoes that squeeze your toes. However, claw toe also is often the result of nerve damage caused by diseases like diabetes or alcoholism, which can weaken the muscles in your foot. Having claw toe means your toes "claw" digging down into the soles of your shoes and creating painful calluses. Claw toe gets worse without treatment and may become a permanent deformity over time.

 

At Neville Foot and Ankle Centers, we offer an experienced team of medical and surgical specialists of the foot and ankle. As licensed podiatrists, we believe our patients deserve to have the information necessary to make good choices about their foot and ankle care.

  • Claw toe often affects the four smaller toes simultaneously. The toes bend up at the joint where the toes and the foot meet and bend down at the middle joints which causes the toes to curl toward the floor (hence the name "claw toe").

 

If you notice that your toe looks odd or hurts, contact us. The longer you wait, the higher the likelihood that surgical action is required.

 

Tight shoes are the most common cause of Claw Toes. Wearing tight shoes can cause the toe muscles to get out of balance over time. If a shoe forces a toe to stay in a bent position for too long, the muscles tighten and the tendons contract. This makes it harder to straighten the toe and ultimately the toe muscles can't straighten.
