When should I see a podiatrist about my claw toes?

The sooner you take care of your claw toes, the better off your feet will be. Claw toes are a deformity of your digits that can become permanent if left alone for too long. The condition starts out flexible and relatively easy to manage. Over time, however, your toes stiffen and become fixed in the bent position. Once they become rigid, only surgery can correct this problem and fully relieve your discomfort.

 If you want to manage your toe issues conservatively, you should let Dr. Robert Parker and our staff at Parker Foot & Ankle take care of your lower limbs when your toes first show signs of curling and clenching. That way we can help you begin physical therapy and make the shoe or orthotic changes you need before the problem progresses too far. Don’t wait to make an appointment. Call our Houston office at (281) 497-2850 or use the website to reach us.
