Hammer toe is a painful deformity that causes muscles and tendons to shorten and bend your toe downward. Many cases resolve through home care, but we may consider surgery if you pain persists.


Our physical therapists may recommend stretching exercises to strengthen and straighten the muscles in your toe. In some cases, our orthopedic surgeons may cut or move tendons and ligaments or fuse bones together to increase your toe’s range of motion.
