Wrapping a Hammer Toe

A wrapped hammer toe

Start with the tape under the toes, with the sticky side up.

Gently wrap the tape under the big toe (or the toe next to the hammer toe), then over the hammer toe, and then under the next toe and over to the toe you started with. This forces the hammer toe into a normal position. This does not straighten the toe permanently.
