Question regarding a possible broken toe


Question


Today I tripped over my dog and took a bit of a tumble, when i stood up my big toe on my right foot really hurt and now I can't use it to walk properly, there is a bruise now that I will take a photo of. Just curious if it would actually be broken or something else?

Answer

It may be broken or it may just be badly bruised. An x-ray will confirm the status. The alignment of your largest toe looks fine so time is required for healing. If walking is too difficult, your Podiatrist can assist.

See your Podiatrist for further evaluation if pain persists.
