What To Do About Overlapping Toes and proper footwear will relieve these conditions/dtfootwear.com
Many disorders can affect the joints in the toes, causing pain and preventing the foot from functioning as it should. People of all ages can experience forefoot problems. Overlapping toes can occur in any of the toes and can cause extreme irritation if not corrected.
So what causes overlapping toes? Typically it’s your footwear choice. Tight shoes can lead to the formation of bunions caused by friction, and these, in turn, can cause overlapping toes to develop over time. When bunions form on the big toe, it causes the second toe to have to accommodate the extra space. Often, the only place the toe can go is over another toe.
Don’t ignore this overlapping problem
Any problems that cause pain or discomfort in the toes should be given prompt attention. Ignoring the symptoms can aggravate the condition, and lead to a breakdown of tissue or even infection. Conservative treatment (non-surgical treatment) of overlapping toes begins with accommodating the disorder. Shoes with a high, broad toe box (toe area) are recommended for people suffering from overlapping toes. Forefoot supports such as gel toe straighteners, gel toe caps, and toe combs are often recommended to keep overlapping toes apart. These useful devices are designed to reduce friction to help relieve the discomfort.
