Toe Pain Podiatrists St. Louis
Many people do not give much thought to their toes until they experience pain and realize how much their toes affect daily life. 14 of the 26 bones in your feet are in your toes and they play a crucial role in your overall mobility — your toes, especially your big toe, help balance you when standing, bending down, and moving around.
Since your movement can be limited when you experience toe pain, it is important to give your toes the care they need. Some complications with the toes are preventable, our Missouri Foot & Ankle podiatrists can help keep your feet in good health.
Causes of Toe and Toenail Pain
Toe disorders and pain are common symptoms since your feet are constantly exposed to trauma like stubbing or dropping something on them. Even simple acts such as wearing too loose or too tight shoes, or physical activity like walking, running, or playing sports can cause injury to the toes.
Treatments for Toe Disorders
Our podiatrists offer medical and surgical treatment of:
- Fungal Toenails, Yellowed or Deformed Toenails
- Stiff Big Toe Joint (Hallux Limitus)
- Ingrown Toenails
It is best to treat the condition as soon as it happens or is noticed. Depending on the issue, treatment for toe pain can range from simple to complex:
- Taking medication
- Wearing shoe inserts or special shoes
- Wearing toe padding
- Taping toes
