Are your toes curled under? Are you having trouble walking? Do your feet hurt? Do you think you have hammertoe? Also called hammer toes, this condition can be painful and embarrassing. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, hammertoe forms when a joint in one of your small toes bends due to weak foot muscles. The result is a toe that curls or buckles under.
