    Hello and thank you for your question. As a diabetic if you have had recurrence of ulceration on the tip of your digit, I recommend discussing a surgical procedure to correct the hammertoe or claw toe.

    Most contracted digits are due to a muscle imbalance which is difficult to reverse – and if your claw toe is rigid – then there is no way to reverse it as it is now structural.

    A claw toe or hammertoe surgery has a quick recovery – roughly 2 weeks – and will help reduce the risk of ulcer recurrence. I hope this helps!
