As the Super Bowl approaches, you can be sure all the teams are wondering about player injuries. NFL players have had their fair share of toe fractures. With all of the running, jumping, and twisting required to play professional football (or engage in any strenuous physical activity), this injury is one of the types we see most frequently. Our feet are easy to break, but they can take some time to heal.

Usually a broken toe occurs when we stub it against something immovable or drop something heavy on it. You may feel pain, see signs of swelling or bruising, and it may not be possible to move the toe on its own. Unless the bone needs to be reset, there are things you can do at home to ease the hurt and get back to normal.

The first thing you need to do is stay off your feet. Kick back, relax ,and enjoy watching playoff football! While you are resting your foot, apply a bag of ice to the damaged area for 20 minutes a few times a day, and keep your legs elevated. Nighttime when you’re asleep is also a great time to elevate by using pillows for support. In addition, try taping the fractured toe to its neighbor. This is better than using a splint because the “buddies” will move together and heal more naturally.

Sometimes podiatric attention is necessary. The bone may need to be set or fixed by surgical means. Other times a doctor can design a special shoe or orthotic that will make getting around easier. They may also prescribe medication for pain or swelling.

If you have a broken toe give Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee a call at 888-784-5335. At either of our Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists offices in Sugar Land or Houston we are committed to getting you back on your feet in the shortest time possible.
