Toe straightener for 3 year old with curled and hammer toes
(Brooklyn, NY, USA)
My 3 year old sons toes (3 center ones on both feet) are curled. The middle toe is hammered and the other two are curling toward the middle. They just recently began to curl. I thought it was maybe because his shoes were too small... but I got a new pair and that didn't change...
So off to the podiatrist I went and he told us his 2nd and 3rd toes are slightly webbed and that's what might be causing it... and there's nothing to do about it besides for surgically correcting it when he's older.
Although I'm not a Dr I don't believe that. He's so young.. I'm sure if there was some sort of night brace to hold those little toes straight, his bones would grow right. Is there anything you can suggest??
There are triple toe straighteners which can be worn at night, and also a product known as yoga toes which might also be beneficial.
The only problem is these products as far as I know, do not come in a small size for toddlers.
I will do some more searching and see if I can find someone who makes a small enough size. The other thing you might check out is to see if you could have a custom straightener made.
I'll get back with you if I find anything out.
