Broken Toe Directory

There are several bones in the toes that can be broken. You can break your toe by hitting it against something, kicking something too hard, falling, dropping something on your toe, or in sports through repetitive motions. You may experience pain, swelling, bruising, or other signs of a fracture. You should elevate the foot and apply ice. Treatment by a physician may include a procedure where the fractured bone may need to be put back into place. Some toe fractures need to be splinted or casted. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how a broken toe is caused, what it looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
