broken toe when 7 years old

Question


I was about 7 years old when i broke my toe now i'm 24 and it hurts to walk what should i do?

Answer

See a podiatrist or foot and ankle specialist for advice on management. I suspect your podiatrist would assess you, order some x-rays and/or scans and then advise you on the best possible treatment for your problem. This may involve foot mobilisation, taping, splinting, medication and/or foot surgery.

See a Podiatrist for a full examination.
