Crooked second toe

Hello I would like to know what condition it is shown on the picture

– my second toe on both feet is same as this. How to treat it because it doesn’t look good, if it’s possible non-surgical methods because it doesn’t cripple me except for the looks of my feet. Thank you.

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Based on the picture you sent that is what’s called a mallet toe. The angulation in the last joint is often due to how your toes are hitting each other causing a subtle subluxation of the joint. There really is no way to treat this without doing surgery.

    The surgery to correct it is a very quick recovery (2 weeks) and is associated with a minimal incision and scar. If you are interested in learning more about the surgery or recovery I would see a Foot Surgeon in your area.

    I hope this helps!
