Claw toe is a foot deformity. It often gets mistaken for hammertoe, but it differs because, with claw toe, your toes are bending down to resemble a claw look. When you experience this issue, you will notice that your toes are creating painful calluses. High-heeled shoes are a common reason behind this, along with short shoes, nerve damage, diabetes, or weakened muscles in your foot. Claw toe is painful and can cause permanent damage to your toes and mobility.
If you notice that you have a claw toe, you will need to see a podiatrist so that you can get it treated.
If none of the above treatment options resolve the issue, your podiatrist may suggest surgery. The complexity of the surgery will depend on the flexibility of your foot and toes.
