Toe Pain Treatment Options

Treating Toe Pain in All Its Forms: Corns, Calluses, Bunions, Hammertoes & Arthritis

Oftentimes the cause of severe pain in your foot or toes is hidden by pain and other symptoms. Frequent bunions could be caused by other problems in your feet, such as arthritis, calluses or hammertoes, and bunions can lead to hallux limitus. Diseases like lupus may also be responsible for foot pain. 

In some cases you may be able to relieve the pain with some home remedies, stretches or other natural treatment options. If the pain is severe or persistent, you need professional help. That's where we step in! Our experienced podiatrists will diagnose the source of your toe pain and give you a customized treatment plan, including bunion and hammertoe surgery if necessary.

Contact Milwaukee's best podiatrists at Advanced Foot and Ankle of Wisconsin, LLC and get an expert diagnosis. We'll have you up and on your feet in no time.

 

Bunion Symptoms and Prevention MilwaukeeIdentifying and Treating Bunions

A bunion is a bone deformity caused by lateral deviation of the toe. The migration outward of a bone called the 1st metatarsal causes a misalignment of the toe and results in an unsightly and painful bump.

As the toe moves outward, the medial aspect of the foot, or the "bump," causes friction and pressure as it rubs against footwear. Over time, the movement of the big toe angles in toward the other toes and will sometimes overlap the second toe. This will cause more irritation and can also lead to other toe deformities, such as hammertoe. Find out more about bunions

Hammertoe Pain Treatment MilwaukeeUnderstanding the Causes and Symptoms of Hammertoes

Hammertoe is a deformity of the lesser toes. In this condition, the toe is bent at the middle joint, causing it to resemble a hammer. Left untreated, hammertoes can become inflexible and require surgery. People with hammertoes may have corns or calluses on the top or tip of the toe. They may also feel pain in their toes or feet and have difficulty finding comfortable shoes. Seek treatment right away if you have difficulty walking because of pain. Find out more about hammertoes
