Overlapping Toes | Estero

Pain Solutions

On average, people take 6,000 to 10,000 steps each day. With each step there are normal movement patterns that should be completed. When these patterns deviate from normal, a variety of conditions can often result.

Overlapping toes is a condition where one toe rests on top of an adjacent toe, causing discomfort and/or pain. This may occur in any of the toes and may also affect the toe joints. In addition to causing pain, this condition often leads to other problems in the gait and feet such as corns and calluses.

People of all ages can experience forefoot problems and should seek treatment before the condition progresses. If this condition is left untreated, it can interfere with the normal function of the foot, lead to a breakdown of tissue or even infection. Overlapping of the fifth toe may occur among children and can be easily corrected.
