Despite suffering a broken toe, John Lundstram of Oxford United was able to play 90 minutes in Oxford United’s 1-0 win against Cambridge United last month. The game was the first time the midfielder featured since originally sustaining his injury at Braintree during the Emirates FA Cup. Lundstam was not restricted by the broken bone, “It happened about five minutes into the second half at Braintree, when one of the lads stood on my toe. You think the pain will go away after 30 seconds, but it stayed. It wasn’t too bad, a couple of painkillers before the game did the trick.”

A broken toe is extremely painful and needs immediate attention. If you have any concerns about your feet contact one of our podiatrists from Foot Health Podiatry. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.

What to Know About a Broken Toe

Although most people try to avoid foot trauma such as banging, stubbing, or dropping heavy objects on their feet, the unfortunate fact is that it is a common occurrence. Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture).

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • throbbing pain
  • swelling
  • bruising on the skin and toenail
  • the inability to move the toe
  • toe appears crooked or disfigured
  • tingling or numbness in the toe

Generally, it is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated.

Severe toe fractures may be treated with a splint, cast, and in some cases, minor surgery. Due to its position and the pressure it endures with daily activity, future complications can occur if the big toe is not properly treated.

This week, MMA fighter Uriah Hall defeated opponent Thiago Santos at UFC 175, but not without a price. Hall suffered a broken toe during the middle of the opening round. Due to being injured during the fight, Hall’s performance suffered during the fight itself.

Hall was clearly contending with a lot of pain for most of the fight, even having to briefly consult with a UFC physician during the third round. But in the end he ignored the discomfort and defeated Santos. A later medical examination eventually revealed that one of the bones in the second toe of his right foot was horrifically dislocated.

Broken toes are painful. If you injured your toe, speak to podiatrist Dr. Sorelis Jiménez, DPM of Foot Health Podiatry. Dr. Jiménez can treat your foot and ankle injuries.

Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture). Another type of trauma that can break a toe is repeated activity that places stress on the toe for prolonged periods of time.

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • throbbing pain
  • swelling
  • bruising on the skin and toenail
  • the inability to move the toe with ease.
  • toe appears crooked or disfigured
  •  tingling or numbness in the toe
  • injured person experiences fever or chills throughout their body, and when there is an open, bleeding wound present on the toe.

Generally, a minor toe break will heal without long-term complications, but it is important to discontinue activities that put pressure on the toe.
