Claw Toe

-Friday, 20 November 2020 (Jeffrey Oster, DPM)


A claw toe is one of a number of different types of digital deformities of the foot collectively known as hammer toes. A claw toe can affect one toe individually or all of the toes concurrently. Claw toes can be described as a deformity in which the entire toe grabs the ground. All three joints of the toe are part of a claw toe deformity. Claw toes develop due to two types of imbalance in the tendons that move the toe up and down: extensor substitution and flexor substitution.
