Injury lawyers in Staxton and broken toes
Staxton is a village in the Rydale district of North Yorkshire. The village is one of several which follow what would have been the shoreline of the lake that filled the valley in the last ice age. The inhabitants of Yorkshire or any other county in the UK are all potentially susceptible to fractures in the feet, particularly the toes. Broken toes are very common because it is so easy to do. Just dropping something on your toe can easily break it.
Most broken toes are the fault of the person who owns them, but if you sustain a broken toe injury in an accident that was not your fault then you may be able to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in Staxton.
Self-treatment for a broken toe
Treating a broken toe yourself is fairly easy providing it is just a clean break with no complications. After putting some padding of gauze or something similar between the broken toe and the one next to it, you tape the two toes together. This is called buddy taping, and the healthy toe acts as a splint for the fractured toe. With rest, the broken toes should heal over four to six weeks.
You should try not to walk on it too much and avoid wearing tight shoes or high heels until it is fully recovered. However, if the toe is at a twisted angle, you should seek medical assistance because you might need to have an X-ray, and it may need straightening or pinning back in place.
