Your podiatric surgeon can provide or prescribe pads designed to shield corns from irritation. Corticosteroid injections are sometimes used to ease pain and inflammation caused by hammertoe. The most common surgical procedure performed to correct a hammertoe is called arthroplasty.
Another surgical option is arthrodesis, which is usually reserved for more rigid toes or severe cases, such as when there are multiple joints or toes involved. Often patients with hammertoes have bunions or other foot deformities corrected at the same time.

But even without corns and calluses, hammertoes can cause pain because the joint itself may become dislocated.
This imbalance, which leads to a bending of the toe, results from mechanical (structural) changes in the foot that occur over time in some people.
Instead, choose comfortable shoes with a deep, roomy toe box and heels no higher than two inches.
In this procedure, the surgeon removes a small section of the bone from the affected joint.
Your podiatric surgeon knows the proper way to trim corns to bring you the greatest benefit.

Among other concerns, he or she will take into consideration the type of shoes you want to wear, the number of toes involved, your activity level, your age, and the severity of the hammertoe. A seed corn is a tiny, discrete callous that can be very tender if it's on a weight-bearing part of the foot. Seed corns tend to occur on the bottom of the feet, and some doctors believe this condition is caused by plugged sweat ducts.
