    A hammer toe is defined as a deformity that results in a toe resembling a hammer due because it is bent upward in the middle. Hammertoes often occur alongside other toe problems, and sometimes corns develop on the surface skin of the middle joint of the hammertoe. Hammertoes can be stiff or flexible. Rigid hammertoes are more serious. The tendons tighten and the joints become misaligned and immobile. What causes the pain? Hammertoes are caused by an abnormal muscle balance in the toes, which leads to increased pressures on the toe tendon and joints. Heredity, trauma, arthritis, and wearing tight shoes can all lead to hammer toe.
