    Our toes get broken very easily, because they are so likely to get something dropped on them or get banged or knocked in some way. We tend to take them for granted, even though they assist us in walking and balance. Our four smaller toes have three bones in each, while the large toe has only two. That’s 14 toes on each foot that could sustain a break in an accident that was not your fault.

    Once broken, the treatment is fairly easy

    When you realise there is a problem with your toes, you first need to see if any of them look deformed in any way. If they do, there may be bones out of place and you should seek immediate medical attention to stop them getting any worse.

    If your toes are painful after an incident, they could be broken or sprained; the treatment is similar for both. The cure for broken toes starts by putting some cotton wool or gauze between the broken toe and the one next to it to stop them rubbing together. You then bind the two toes together with plaster and the healthy toe acts as a splint for the broken toe, allowing it to heal straight and healthy. This is called buddy taping and is just as effective for a sprain.

    Try to keep off the foot for a few days to allow the healing process to begin. Even though you can do this treatment yourself, it is wise at some point to let your doctor have a look at the toes to make sure they are healing properly. Try not to walk or stand too much so that you are not putting weight on the toe for long periods of time, and avoid wearing high heels until it is completely healed.

    Most broken toes will heal fully and without any problems, but if you have sustained yours in an accident that was not your fault, you should consult with an injury lawyer in Moray.
