What Is Curly Toes?

A curly toe refers to the condition in which either the third or fourth toe curls underneath the adjacent toe. It is a congenital condition, meaning that it is present from birth but only presents itself when your child learns to walk. It is often genetic and is passed down from parent to child.

Curly toes occur because the tendons underneath the toe are too tight and consequently, pull one toe under the next, making it curl. It usually corrects itself as your child grows and generally does not cause any major problems.

Signs & Symptoms of Curly Toes

Some symptoms that can occur are flattening/thickening of the toenails, sores or blisters, difficulty wearing some shoes and pain or discomfort during movement. If the pain and discomfort is too much, and your child has persistent blisters on their toes, it is best to seek a consultation with our experienced Podiatrist and a suitable treatment can be recommended.

Treatment For Curly Toes

Often a change in footwear is all that is necessary however in serious cases surgery can be undertaken if the case is particularly painful.

“I Was in terrible pain from constant flare up with plantar fasciitis. Doctor explained and showed me why I had the pain and prepared a specially made insole. I’ll be honest I thought twice about purchasing the insole , now it’s just two months later , I’m walking everyday and sometimes I can run and the pressure has eased of my feet , hips and knees . I honestly never thought I could train again the way I used to and it’s all to doctors great knowledge. I was in excruciating pain and had cortisone injection a year earlier and nothing worked . A tip for insoles is I wear them under my sneaker insole so I have the cushioning I need. Best podiatrist ever !!! Thank you”
