Your broken toe could be cause for an injury claim in Pollok
Broken bones in the feet, particularly the toes are very common because it is so easy to do. Just having something dropped on it can break you little toe. If this happens to you, an injury claim may be in order.
The treatment for a broken little toe is really quite simple, you need to rest and not put too much pressure on it. Generally it will heal in 4-6 weeks depending on how much you rest.
How to treat your broken toe that may be causing you to make an injury claim in Pollok
It’s always advisable to seek medical attention especially if the bones look twisted or out of joint. But here are some things you should do until you can see a medical professional:
- Put some gauze or cotton wool between the little toe and the toe next to it. This is to stop them chaffing and becoming sore.
- Bind the two toes together with plaster. The healthy toe acts as a splint for the broken toe, allowing it to heal straight and healthy.
- Keep the foot raised as much as possible for the first few days.
- Apply icepacks every couple of hours for about 15 minutes. This will reduce the swelling and make it more comfortable. Never put ice directly onto the skin, always wrap it in something first.
- Try not to walk or stand too much, let the toe heal.
- Avoid wearing high heels until you are certain the toe is properly better. Good sturdy shoes will do your foot much more good during the healing process.
