Despite suffering a broken toe, John Lundstram of Oxford United was able to play 90 minutes in Oxford United’s 1-0 win against Cambridge United last month. The game was the first time the midfielder featured since originally sustaining his injury at Braintree during the Emirates FA Cup. Lundstam was not restricted by the broken bone, “It happened about five minutes into the second half at Braintree, when one of the lads stood on my toe. You think the pain will go away after 30 seconds, but it stayed. It wasn’t too bad, a couple of painkillers before the game did the trick.”

A broken toe is extremely painful and needs immediate attention. If you have any concerns about your feet contact Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will treat your foot and ankle needs.

What to Know About a Broken Toe

Although most people try to avoid foot trauma such as banging, stubbing, or dropping heavy objects on their feet, the unfortunate fact is that it is a common occurrence. Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture).

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • throbbing pain
  • swelling
  • bruising on the skin and toenail
  • the inability to move the toe
  • toe appears crooked or disfigured
  • tingling or numbness in the toe

Generally, it is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated.

Severe toe fractures may be treated with a splint, cast, and in some cases, minor surgery. Due to its position and the pressure it endures with daily activity, future complications can occur if the big toe is not properly treated.

Geoff Schwartz of the New York Giants has had to combat a season full of injuries. The player suffered a broken toe during the third preseason game against the Jets, placing him on short-term injured reserve for the first ten weeks of the season. After returning to the field, Schwartz was only able to make it one more quarter before he broke his ankle, officially ending his season. At the Giants’ minicamp in June, Schwartz shared, “My toe’s fine, I haven’t really felt it all this spring. My anke’s getting there, it’s just a matter of getting the repetitive pounding on the ankle. It’s gonna take time, I’ve got a couple of weeks now, five weeks to get it right.”

Westley (Cary Elwes) and Buttercup (Robin Wright) share a romantic 'Princess Bride' moment, while Elwes tries not to put weight on his foot. (20th Century Fox)Actor Cary Elwes—best known as the farm boy who becomes Dread Pirate Robert’s protégé then dies and gets revitalized a few times in Princess Bride—will release a memoir about the movie’s production in October.  The book is titled “As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride.”

In a recent discussion about the memoir on a panel at BookCon, Elwes revealed that six weeks into filming he broke his toe.  He said he was afraid that he’d lose the role if he asked for a delay, and instead suffered quietly on set.  He also admitted that many of his postures were based primarily on removing pressure from the swollen foot

Apparently, he broke the toe while driving Andre the Giant’s ATV by somehow wedging his foot under the pedal.

While the sheer willpower required to fence through crippling foot pain is impressive, ignoring and exerting a broken toe is ill advised.  If you are suffering from a broken bone in the foot or ankle, see podiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will attend to any of your podiatric needs.

broken footPolice reports indicate Justin Bieber’s performance on several recent sobriety tests say that he told officers he has a foot injury. This injury, Bieber claims, prevented him from passing the line test. Bieber’s injury is reportedly a hairline fracture in his right foot that resulted from a skateboarding injury three months ago.

Additionally, it needs to be noted that the report also describes Bieber as being “agitated and condescending”, making use of frequent profanity when brought to the police station. Also, Bieber’s injury was not mentioned or even noticed after the test was given according to the report.  This raises questions on the validity of Bieber’s excuse.

Even if it’s not an excuse for everything, a broken foot can affect just about anyone. If you or a loved one sustained a broken foot, come see podiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti can address your broken foot’s needs with care and professionalism.    

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot ‘breaking’, or fracturing. Bones typically break when the bone is bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury.  

Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:

· Bruising
· Pain
· Redness
· Swelling
· Blue (foot)
· Numbness
· Cold
· Misshapen
· Cuts
· Deformities

Those who are experiencing any of these symptoms, or suspect that they have a broken foot, should seek medical attention in a center where x-rays can be performed. This is especially urgent if any of the symptoms include numbness, blue coloring, cold feet, cuts, misshapen toes or deformities as these indicate more severe cases.
