Treatment of Toe Fractures
Fractures of the toe bones are almost always traumatic fractures. Treatment for traumatic fractures depends on the break itself and may include these options:
Rest. Sometimes rest is all that is needed to treat a traumatic fracture of the toe.
Splinting. The toe may be fitted with a splint to keep it in a fixed position.
Rigid or Stiff-Soled Shoe. Wearing a stiff-soled shoe protects the toe and helps keep it properly positioned.
"Buddy Taping." "Buddy taping" the fractured toe to another toe is sometimes appropriate, but in other cases it may be harmful.
Surgery. If the break is badly displaced or if the joint is affected, surgery may be necessary. Surgery often involves the use of fixation devices, such as pins.
Symptoms of a toe fracture include bruising, swelling, and excruciating pain as the toe fracture is often accompanied by an incidental soft tissue injury involving tendons and ligaments. Of these, the tendon injury is most unusual, but still a risk when a toe or other foot injury occurs.
Of all of the toes, the large or "big" toe is considered the most important in treating toe fracture. Because the large toe carries the responsibility of weight bearing activity and balance, a consultation with an orthopedic specialist is usually required.
In most cases, treating your toe fracture will simply involve splinting with pain control using anti-inflammatory medications. Immediately after the injury occurs, your physician will recommend that you apply ice to the injured site regularly and elevate the foot to decrease swelling. Only in rare cases is surgery required to pin or surgically correct a toe fracture.
I don't understand. Those are all jobs for women to be doing. Men are supposed to be sat in pubs discussing important matters like the future direction of society.
