My hammertoes are causing corns, what can I do?

Hammer toes and claw toes create a change in the shape of our toes.

In some cases, this change in shape means the toes can rub on shoes or cause a change in the way pressure is distributed through our feet.

This can create callouses than can deteriorate into painful corns.

Painful as they are, corns can be removed carefully and painlessly by a podiatrist, and we can discuss with your ways to prevent them coming back.

Some of the ways corns may be avoided in the future is by making changes to the kinds of footwear you use, using protective padding or surgical intervention in more severe cases.
