Is My Toe Broken?

Monday, 24 August 2020 00:00

There are many signs that can indicate if a person has broken their toe. Common symptoms of a broken toe can include pain when the affected toe is touched, difficulty walking, as well as swelling and bruising. Bruising can appear with vivid discoloration if the injury is extreme. Sometimes the toenail of the affected toe can become severely damaged and show abnormalities if a break has occurred. Blood may become trapped under the toenail causing discoloration. More noticeably, you may see a bone protrude from the affected toe. If you believe you have a broken toe, it’s important that you visit a podiatrist who can provide a proper diagnosis and an advised treatment plan.

Broken toes may cause a lot of pain and should be treated as soon as possible. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact Dr. Steven Stanton from CyFair Family Foot Care. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.

What Is a Broken Toe?

A broken toe occurs when one or more of the toe bones of the foot are broken after an injury. Injuries such as stubbing your toe or dropping a heavy object on it may cause a toe fracture.

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • Swelling
  • Pain (with/without wearing shoes)
  • Stiffness
  • Nail Injury

Although the injured toe should be monitored daily, it is especially important to have a podiatrist look at your toe if you have severe symptoms. Some of these symptoms include worsening or new pain that is not relieved with medication, sores, redness, or open wounds near the toe.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office located in Cypress, TX. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.
