Broken toes are a painful and common injury treated by podiatrists. If you think your toe may be broken, be sure to visit a foot doctor as soon as possible. Watch this video for some helpful tips on determining if you have broken your toe.
First, remove your shoes and socks. If you notice any bumps or deformities when you feel your toe, this can indicate a break. Next, wiggle your toe. If you experience severe pain, there is a good chance that your toe is broken. Other signs of a broken toe include popping or grating sounds when you move your toe, extreme swelling, or a significant difference in appearance when compared to the same toe on your other foot.
