“Turf toe” could be a few different types of injuries - not just one specific condition or anatomical structure. The primary method of prevention is use of stiffer shoes/cleats and taping (particularly for sports where one is barefoot)," says Amol Saxena, DPM.

"Most turf toe injuries can be treated without surgery. Mild sprains usually need some relative rest, ice, and stiffer shoes and/or insoles. Oftentimes, a specific foot insert (orthosis) or turf toe insole is used to help an athlete return to play. These keep the big toe from bending too much. Sometimes, a cleat is directly under a sesamoid; removing the sesamoid can be helpful. Moderate cases usually need a boot as well as non-weight-bearing," says Dr. Saxena.
