  • TORONTO PODIATRIST DISCUSSES HAMMERTOES IN TORONTO STAR ON 25/06/2013

IN THE TORONTO STAR ON 25/06/2013, TORONTO PODIATRIST MR. CHELIN STATES, "HAMMERTOES ARE ANOTHER SOFT TISSUE DEFORMITY THAT -- IF CAUGHT EARLY ENOUGH -- CAN BE CORRECTED WITHOUT INVASIVE TREATMENT.  IT'S DESCRIBED BEST AS AN UPWARD DISLOCATION OF ANY OF THE TOES, MAKING THE 'KNUCLE' HIGHER THAN THE PLANE OF THE FOOT.  THE AFFECTED DIGIT HAS THE DISTINCT LOOK OF A RAISED HAMMER.  ILL FITTING SHOES THAT DON'T GIVE PROPER SUPPORT CAN BE A MAJOR CAUSE OF THE MALADY, SINCE BENT TOES MAKES THE MUSCLES IN THEM SHORTEN."

PODIATRIST CHELIN STATES, "EARLY DETECTION -- THROUGH FOOT CHECKUPS OR SELF EXAMINATION -- IS IMPORTANT BEFORE THE TISSUE BECOMES RIGID AND AND INFLEXIBLE.  MANUAL STRETCHING CAN CORRECT THE ISSUE EARLY.  AS WELL, ORTHOTIC SHOES WITH DEEPER TOE BOXES CAN HELP."
