Dr. David Laha answered:

What are the symptoms of claw toe?

Pain/shoe irritation

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Claw toes are the contracture of both joints in a toe. Symptoms can include the top of the toe rubbing in the shoe and/or the tip of the toe becoming painful or callusing due to abnormal pressure. Padding can be helpful, but surgery may be necessary depending on severity of symptom/problem. Foothealthfacts.org. Dr L

Dr. David Laha answered:

What sort of disease is a claw toe?

Contracted toes

Open-uri20120708-4014-1s4qkyt
Claw toe is a buckling of the toe(s). The toe is in a "c" shape. Sometimes it can be flexible(you can straighten it out). Other times it can be rigid(won't straighten out). This is a structural deformity. Conservative care consists a taller toebox shoe. Some padding can help with symptoms. Usually surgical straightening is needed if conservative care is not successful.

What are the causes of hammer toe/claw toe?

Bent toe.

Open-uri20130326-16650-14q33ks
People can get hammertoes several different ways, including just an unlucky roll of the genetic dice, but the fundamental result is usually the same: a toe that has drawn back and no longer sits straight or "flat". Sometimes it's only a tendon that holds the toe in that position, other times there's arthritis involved: these tend to be more rigid, and require surgery if you want them corrected.

Dr. Mathew M. John answered:

Are there treatment guidelines for claw toe?

Yes

Extremity-lower-foot-big_toe
Claw toes or hammertoes are deformities of the toes due to an imbalance of muscles and tendons of the foot. Initially symptoms may be mild and the contracture of the toe is flexible. If left untreated the deformity can progress to a fixed deformity that is stiff and inflexible. Surgery often involved arthroplasty (removal of the joint) or fusion (arthrodesis) of the joint.

Dr. David Laha answered:

Do you have to break toes to fix a claw toe?

Usually bone removal

Open-uri20120708-15963-fx4ryk
If the toe is symptomatic, the surgery to straighten the toe will help. This usually involves removing a small portion of the toe to unbuckle the toe. Dr L

Dr. Ellen Wenzel answered:

I've heard different things. What exactly is claw toe?

Contracture

Claw_toe
Each of the smaller toes in your foot has two joints (or knuckles). They are the proximal interphalangeal joint (this is the one closest the main part of the foot) and the distal interphalangeal joint (closest to the end of the toe). When both of these joints are contracted, you have a claw toe.
