I have a broken toe. Is there anything I can do?

We have all bumped or dropped something on our toe in our lifetime. How could such a little toe hurt so much, we often ask ourselves. Regardless of the injury, if you hurt your toe don’t ignore it. First line of treatment is RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to the affected toe/foot. Taping the injured toe to the adjacent toe to prevent motion can help with pain.

Ultimately though a podiatrist should look at your toe and get X-rays. If the toe is broken it must be treated correctly to prevent further problems with healing, walking and shoe gear. Although a toe is small, serious long lasting complications can arise if left untreated.
