A hammertoe is a foot condition in which the toe has an abnormal bend in the middle joint. Hammertoes can be a hereditary condition, but ill-fitting shoes can add to the problem. A hammertoe causes the high point of your knuckles to become susceptible to shoe pressure. This will lead to pain, inflammation, and calluses. Over time, the toe will lose flexibility in the joint.*
Keep your toes flexible with stretching exercises. Each morning, before you step out of bed, gently stretch your feet with your hands to help flex and extend your toes.
