Healing Hammertoes, Part One

While some people may try to use home remedies in order to avoid seeing a doctor, when it comes to hammertoes, it is important not to take chances with your feet. I’m Doctor Paul Betschart, a podiatrist here in Danbury, CT, and I would like to share part one of a three part series on treatments that many try at home, but cannot completely heal hammertoes. Since improper footwear is one of the most common instigators of a hammertoe condition, some may think that simply purchasing new footwear will solve the problem. While comfortable shoes that allow your feet to breathe may help prevent further damage, they cannot repair the curvature that has already occurred.

You need to see a podiatrist like me. I invite you to come to my Danbury or Middlebury office and get some real help and relief.
