Nearly a quarter of the body’s bones are located in the feet, making it a wonder that there aren’t more fractures here than there already are. Toe fractures are relatively common, but many people are often unaware that they have broken a toe.
A foot doctor can tell you for sure whether a fracture has occurred, but common signs include pain and swelling in the area. Bruising may or may not be present, and walking on the affected foot may intensify the pain. Of course, if you suspect you may have broken a toe, it’s best to see a podiatrist right away, but definitely do so if the symptoms have not abated after two or three days.
