It is difficult to know what causes the clawing...each case is different, I suppose.
I can't believe filleting your feet would help!
we tried special shoes and inserts but no improvement...
My husband finds that straightening the bones has improved everything enormously.
The surgeon says he will re -straighten the clawed ones if he wants but they aren't really bothering him .
I do hope you find some resolution.
I feel now that I am confident enough to ask for referral if things are not right and we feel specialist advice will help.
Our neurologist didn't really know about feet but the foot specialist offered a solution straight away.
Quick, whilst there is still the NHS!
