At Prairie Rock Foot and Ankle Clinic in Manteno, IL, we understand the discomfort and inconvenience that hammertoes can bring. Our dedicated team of podiatrists is committed to providing comprehensive care to help you find relief and restore functionality to your feet. Hammertoes often develop due to an imbalance in the muscles, tendons, or ligaments that hold the toe straight. This imbalance can be caused by genetics, wearing ill-fitting shoes, arthritis, or injury.

If you experience persistent pain, difficulty walking, or notice changes in the shape of your toes, it's essential to seek professional help. Dr. Elizabeth Hofmeister and Dr. Rebecca Hodulik at Prairie Rock Foot and Ankle Clinic are here to provide expert care and help you find relief from hammertoes. Don't let hammertoes hold you back from enjoying life to the fullest.

A Comprehensive Guide to Treatment for Hammertoes

Hammertoes, a foot deformity, can cause discomfort and affect mobility. A comprehensive treatment guide involves both non-surgical and surgical options tailored to the severity of the condition. Non-surgical approaches include wearing properly fitted shoes with adequate toe space, using orthotic inserts to relieve pressure, and exercises to strengthen toe muscles. Padding or taping may alleviate pain and prevent further deformity. In more severe cases, where conservative measures fail to provide relief, surgical intervention may be necessary to realign the affected toes.

At Prairie Rock Foot and Ankle Clinic, patients benefit from services designed to address hammertoes. These include thorough diagnosis through physical examination and imaging techniques such as X-rays. Non-surgical treatments like custom orthotics and splints are available to relieve symptoms and prevent progression.

We offer minimally invasive surgical procedures for precise correction of hammertoe deformities, ensuring optimal outcomes with minimal downtime. Post-operative care, including rehabilitation and follow-up appointments, is provided to monitor progress and address concerns.
