TORONTO CHIROPODIST SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING 'TURF TOE'

 

PODIATRIST, DR. MICHAEL CORNELISON STATES, "BIG TOE, GREAT TOE, OR THE MEDICAL TERM "HALUX" -- WHATEVER YOU CALL THAT FIRST TOE OF YOURS, IT'S AN IMPORTANT DIGIT YOU DON'T WANT TO INJURE, BECAUSE IT COULD TURN OUT TO BE A BIGGER PROBLEM THEN YOU THINK.  ONE SUCH INJURY IS 'TURF TOE,' SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS IN FOOTBALL OR OTHER SPORTS WHEN THE TOE IS FORCEFULLY BENT IN THE WRONG WAY.  OTHER TYPES OF BIG TOE INJURIES OCCUR DURING EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES, SUCH AS DROPPING A HEAVY OBJECT ON THE FOOT OR EVEN BADLY STUBBING THE TOE."

PODIATRIST, CORNELISIN ALSO STATES, "THE IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS THAT EVEN THOUGH IT'S JUST A TOE, AN INJURY TO THE BIG TOE CAN BE  BIG PROBLEM.  FOR THIS REASON, MEDICAL ATTENTION IS NEEDED IF THE SYMPTOMS -- PAIN AND SWELLING DON'T RESOLVE AFTER A FEW DAYS.  TURF TOE VARIES IN SEVERITY, RANGING FROM A MILD SPRAIN TO BROKEN BONES AND A COMPLETE DISRUPTION OF THE LIGAMENTS AROUND THE BIG TOE JOINT.  TURF TOE CAN BE SIGNIFICANT AND PUT AN ATHLETE OUT FOR QUITE SOME TIME."
