I broke the **** out of my hand back in '97, and took care of it myself. Doctors are full of ****. I kept it wrapped in an ace bandage, and about 6 weeks later, it was fine.

it is adviseable to go as there may be more damage than a simple break. Use anti inflammatory tabs - assuming you are not allergic to the medication BE SURE and stay off your feet as much as possible. stiff boots/shoes will help to minimise movement. Dont kick the dog again!

i would just go to get it checked but usually they just wrap it to the toe next to it and advise you to take it easy

Not always. It is possible to straighten it and splint it at home if you know what you are doing. If you don't, go to the doctor's office or ER to get it set.

You could call a toe-truck instead.


charles w
it depends on what toe, tell us exactly what toe is broken

Nothing they can do about it but give you pain medicine. So just relax

I have broken toes a few times...and I asked my doctor the same. He said it is a good idea for them to x-ray it to make sure some of the other, smaller bones in the foot are not also broken. I am a pretty active runner/biker/swimmer and that made sense to me.

I think you should. It is advisable to get an x-ray done besides how would you, how exactly the bone is broken.

I broke my right pinkie toe during training, guy helping me up wore shoes, I didn't so he accidentally kicked it off. I was on an adrenaline high, put it back in place, finished my training hour and didn't realize how much it hurt until I was in the showers. Had to call a friend to drive me home.

I never went to a doctor coz I couldn't figure out what a doctor would do, except taping the toe in place, which I did myself. I couldn't walk properly until some 3 weeks later. Running or wearing shoes was out of the question. But the toe healed ok and I've never had any problems with it.

Guess breaking your big toe is different, tho.

I have had a broken my toe and there is not much they can do for you. I would suggest icing it and taping the broken toe to another toe while it heals with athletic tape. The toe needs support also stay away from shoes that bind your toes tightly.
