Hammertoe

DEar Dr. Viviam Abrams,

My husband has hammer toes on of all the phalanges.
He is complaining of pain imparticular of the second phalanges
I am an Occupational Therapist. It seems to me that this deformity is smiliar
to Boutenieres deformity fo the hand phalanges. I was thinking of splinting the foot
as we do in the hand with such a deformity. HAve you ever seen this done before?
What have you recommended for such a problem??
