How do you know if you broke your toe?

John M
See if you can move it and how you can.I mean if you can bend it well.


Blow at High Doe
Get an x-ray, but there is nothing they can do even if it is broke (you can't cast it).
If it hurts tape it to the toe next to it, that is all a doctor will do anyway.


Mischele, RN‚ô•
It's usually swollen, bruised, can be a little deformed looking. You could always go have an x-ray of the foot. But for broken toes, they can't really do anything about it other than tape it to the toe next to it to stabilize it. Ice it up for the first 24 hours and then use heat for 20 minutes several times a day.

Its hard to know unless you see the doctors, is it swollen or hard to bend, is there a bruise? these are all questions to ask yourself, although if you did break it the doctors wont really do anything about it, the best thing to do if it is swollen and painful is just to wrap it in ice and maybe buddy system in with the toe next to it with bandage tape and if the pain is to much and it is not healing you can always call the doctors and ask them what to do and see if they want you to come in, but it should heal fine with ice and rest

Has part of your toe turned purple yet? You can buddy tape it to an adjacent toe for support but don't be surprised if it hurts for a week.

it hurts alot....i have done this twice..one a break and the other a small fracture..either way all you need to do is tape it tight to the toe next to it and try to keep weight off of it if you can...give it a couple of weeks and you'll be back on your feet

...also if it is swollen and bruised...

Remedy is R...I....C....E
compression (Ace bandage?)
and elevation above the level of the heart
... all of the above for the next two days or so....

Toes can't be casted or anything. It's probably not even worth a trip to the doctor. At best, they will recommend the remedy above and ibuprofen.
