Has social distancing got you wondering if you need to go to the doctor or stay home?
When you drop a weight on your toe or stub it, it’s difficult to say what comes first, the swearing or the pain. And if it is indeed broken, it's hard to believe how much a small bone can wreak such havoc. Some toe fractures may require surgery to allow them to heal in the correct alignment. However, on the brighter side, most toe fractures can be healed by simple treatments such as buddy splinting and probably a wider stable shoe. It is worth taking the time to have your toe sprain or fracture evaluated to determine the best choice.
