We take our takes for granted and do not always realise how important they are in helping to support us and propel us around. But when something is dropped on them or they have a forceful knock or bump, they can become quite badly damaged and then you will realise how much you need healthy toes.
Most toe injuries are caused by the person they belong to, but many are broken in accidents as well. If the accident was the fault of someone else,and happened no more than 3 years ago, you may be entitled to claim compensation and should contact Accident Advice Helpline so their solicitors in Jedburgh can help you make a claim.
Treatment for a broken toes is quite simple, says the solicitors in Jedburgh
Once you know that you have damaged your toes, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Breaks and sprains in toes have similar symptoms and you need to know what has happened to yours to ensure the correct treatment. Often the only way to tell if there is a break is to have an X-ray.
The hospital will then treat a break in varying ways depending on the severity. For a minor one they might strap the toes together, but for a severe break you may need surgery to realign the toes and pin them back in place. You should also try to rest and try not to move about so you are not on your feet.
Until your toes are completely better, you should avoid wearing tight shoes or high heels.
The majority of broken toes should heal fine and without any cause for concern, although if you suffered the fracture because of an accident that was not your fault, then you should call the solicitors in Jedburgh, to make a personal injury compensation claim.
