Health Tip: Think You Have a Broken Toe?

(HealthDay News) — If you think you may have broken a toe, it’s time to see a doctor, even if you can walk on it.

Failure to promptly treat a toe fracture may lead to a permanent deformity, arthritis and chronic pain, the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons warns.

The organization offers these common symptoms of a broken toe:

  • You hear a cracking or popping sound at the time of the injury.
  • Sharp pain at the point of impact.
  • Crooked or abnormal appearance of the toe.
  • Bruising and swelling the next day.
