You could suffer a broken little toe quite easily. You could have something dropped on it or it could receive a forceful blow in an accident that was not your own fault. If this happens to you you should think about making Brynaman claims for compensation by using the lawyers from Accident Advice Helpline to help you.
If you do suffer a broken little toe as long as it doesn’t look deformed you are able to treat it yourself, although the best course of action is to seek medical attention, in case there are bone splinters or some other problem with the break. It should heal within 4 to 6 weeks if it is a straightforward break, but if it has needed surgery it could take a little longer. Contact Accident Advice Helpline to see if you are able to make Brynaman claims for compensation, if someone else has caused this injury to happen to you.
The usual treatment for a broken little toe and making Brynaman claims
Normally cotton wool or gauze would be put between the broken toe and the toe next to it to stop them rubbing together. The two toes are then bound together, the healthy toe acting as a splint for the broken toe. This is called buddy taping and is very effective if the break in your toe is a clean break.
It helps if you can keep your foot raised for a coupe of days, and certainly you should not put too much weight on it until it has healed, You should also avoid wearing high heeled shoes, or shoes that are tight, until it is fully recovered.
If you find you have a lot of pain, ice packs can help, but never put them directly onto your skin. Wrap them in a tea towel or something similar first, and 15 minute bursts every couple of hours is the most effective. Over the counter painkillers should help as well.
Part of the secret is to allow your toe the time it needs to heel properly, because it feels OK, suddenly squeezing it into a tight pair of shoes could undo all the good you have done.
