Overlapping toes characterizes a condition where one toe lies on top of an adjacent toe, causing discomfort and pain. Many disorders like overlapping toes 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 and should seek treatment before the condition progresses.

Causes of Overlapping Toes

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 of Overlapping Toes

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.

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 are a great treatment for preventing overlapping toes, such as:

  • Gel Toe Straighteners
  • Gel Toe Caps
  • Toe combs
  • Toe Separators
