One of the best ways to treat the early signs of Hammer Toe is using a Hammer Toe Splint. A Hammer Toe splint is, as the name suggests, simply a splint applied to the affected toe to keep it straight and help bring it back to its standard shape over time.
The simplest form of Hammertoe Splint is a specially designed pad that sits under the foot and is held in place by an elastic band that wraps around the toe, keeping it extended. This very simple and easy-to-use splint is also very practical. It can usually be worn with shoes on and will assist walking rather than impeding it.
