Any condition that affects the joints of your lesser toes is likely to result in a deformity – a change in the normal anatomy of your toes. There are numerous types of lesser toe deformity, but the most common are:
Deformities are the result of an imbalance in the supporting structure in your toe joints (ligaments). If one or more ligament is weaker than the others, the joint will be pulled out of alignment.
These conditions can be the result of:
Diagnosis involves a physical examination and a scan (MRI or ultrasound) to identify soft tissue damage and imbalanced ligaments. An x-ray may be needed if there is a history of trauma.
At Capital Orthopaedics, we are focused on providing the least invasive treatment options for lesser toe deformities.
Our specialists will provide exercises to help re-balance the muscles, tendons and ligaments in your foot and advise on improving lifestyle and footwear. You may also be offered corrective pads to help realign and reduce pressure on the joints.
If conservative measures aren’t successful, our orthopaedic surgeons will carry out a minimally invasive operation to correct soft tissue problems or resolve bone conditions (joint replacement, debridement, fusion or resection).
If you have any discomfort or deformities in your toes, contact Capital Orthopaedics here for a diagnosis and the most effective treatment to get you back on your feet and back to a healthy lifestyle as soon as possible.
