Can you do anything for a broken toe?

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

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.
