Can you do anything for a broken toe?

There is a great misconception that there is nothing to do for a broken toe. This probably started because broken toes are not casted like other broken bones are. There are very good reasons, however, as to why an injured toe be examined by a podiatrist in Houston.

It is important to ensure that a broken toe is in good position. If left to heal in an incorrect position, the toe will heal in a way that may cause pain in the future. You may have ongoing trouble with shoes and could develop a painful corn between the toes. If the toe is not in a suitable position, your Houston podiatrist will discuss how to get it corrected. Don't worry, surgery for a broken toe is rarely necessary.

If the broken toe is in good position, Dr. Andrew Schneider will discuss with you what you must do to keep it that way and ensure that the toe continues to heal properly.
