Transient Toe

If a toe is over the toe closest to it, it is called an overbearing toe. Most often the reason is that you also have an oblique big toe, hallux valgus. On an oblique large toe the toe tip points towards the other toes on the same foot. If the big toe is very oblique it can fold under or over the next toe.

Lumpy Foot – PEVA

Klumpfoot is also called PEVA, which is an abbreviation of the Latin name pes equino varus adductus. It is a congenital malformation which means that the heel is turned inwards and the forefoot is directed downwards towards the body's midline. The heel is also high up while the foot and toes point downwards, so-called tip foot.

Inward and Outward Feet

Some children walk in or out with their feet. It is mostly due to changes in hip mobility and usually go away by itself over time. Sometimes the forefoot may be twisted so that the toes point inwards. Then stretching exercises are often enough, but sometimes the foot may need to be plastered.

Tendinitis

It is common to get sore throats in connection with physical activity such as running or jumping. For example, the pain may come if you have exercised in a different way than you usually do, or when you have trained a little harder than before.

Hammer Toe

If you have a hammer toe, one or more toes next to the big toe are curved. The small joints in the toe are bent so that the toe is similar to a hammer. Because it can cause the shoe to rub against the top of the toe, a sore hardening is often formed there, a so-called corn.
