Market Synopsis of Global Hammertoe Market
Market scenario
Hammertoe is a foot deformity due to imbalance in the muscles, tendons or ligaments which normally hold the toe straight. A hammertoe has an abnormal bend in the middle joint of a toe and usually occur in the second, third and fourth toes. Hammertoe can be caused because of wearing wrong type of shoes such as high heels or shoes that are too short or narrow that force the toe into a bent position. Other reasons are foot structure such as bunions or other foot problems, trauma and certain muscle, nerve, or joint damage diseases such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke, Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease, complex regional pain syndrome or diabetes. Changing your footwear and wearing shoe inserts may relieve the pain and pressure of hammertoe but severe cases require surgery to get relief..

The treatment in most cases consists of physical therapy and new shoes with soft, spacious toe boxes and in severe cases, surgery. The patient may also be prescribed toe exercises that can be done at home to stretch and strengthen the toe muscles. Physical exercises such as stretching the toes or picking things by the toes are also effective. In some cases a brace that pushes down on the toes to force them to stretch out their muscles is also prescribed.

Hammertoe can be of two types i.e. flexible hammer toes and rigid hammer toes. Flexible hammer toes are less serious and are still moveable at the joint and are in the developmental stage. Rigid hammer toes is more developed and more serious and can be seen in cases of severe arthritis. Rigid hammer toe are tight, with misaligned and immobile joint, generally requiring surgery.

The treatment of hammertoe include physiotherapy, drug treatment to relieve associated symptoms and surgery. The drawbacks of surgery include risk of infection, associated pain and hospital stay.

The global Hammertoe market is expected to reach US$ 450 million by 2023, and the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of ~ 5.2 % during the forecast period 2017-2023.
