A "Broken Toe" is a fracture of one of the bones in your
toes. Each of your four toes have three tiny bones and your
big toe has two.
Most broken toes are caused by an injury,
like dropping something heavy on your toe or forcefully
stubbing a toe. Some broken toes are a result of repetitive
strain actions that can cause stress fractures.
Toe fractures that are easy to identify
will show visible signs of swelling, redness and look "out
of place", crooked, "kinked" or deformed. The area around
the broken bone will usually show discoloration and
bruising. Any amount of pressure will be very painful and
you will not be able to stand on it.
Less obvious bone breaks are small stress
fractures that may not show any of the visible signs - only
ache or be somewhat sore to walk on. An x-ray may be
the only way to confirm a fracture.
