Overlapping Toes

Definition

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.

Cause

Wearing footwear with a constricting toe box can lead to overlapping toes.  Another common cause is bunions, usually found in adult women.  Overlapping of the fifth toe may occur among children and can be easily corrected.

Pain and inflammation are common symptoms of overlapping toes.  If this condition is left untreated, it can interfere with the normal function of the foot.

Treatment and Prevention

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 effective devices are designed to reduce friction to help relieve the discomfort.

If problem persists, consult your foot doctor.
