Should you see a doctor for a broken or fractured toe?
Yes. Any fracture or possible fracture should be evaluated by a medical professional and treated appropriately, even if it is in your toe. People often believe that nothing can be done for broken toes, but that is not true. It is actually important that fractured toes be treated. Untreated breaks can lead to the development of a deformity, arthritis, or chronic pain. As far as treatment, the toe may need a splint, or in severe cases, surgery. Shoe changes may also be necessary.
