Have you been diagnosed with "hammertoes" or have you noticed your toes starting to curl up into an unnatural position similar to the image here? Massage therapy has been shown to be beneficial for alleviating the myofascial restrictions associated with this troublesome toe deformity. Most often caused as a result of improperly fitting shoes (much like bunions), hammer toes can often be improved or repaired entirely by a combination of foot exercises, stretches and manual therapies which focus on lengthening shortened tissues, strengthening weak muscle groups and restoring healthy alignment via soft-tissue mobilization. It is important to catch this dysfunction early in order to avoid complications such as bone degeneration or permanent fascial deformity. If you are suffering with hammer toe (or similar disorders), we may be able to help improve your condition with successive massage therapy sessions in order that you may avoid surgery further down the road. Give us a call at The Great Escape Massage & Wellness Center LLC in Chadron today (308) 432-4558, and let us help you put your best foot forward tomorrow!
