Research has indicated that one of the most common ways to break your toe is by stubbing it. This can affect many people who enjoy the sport of running, and it is beneficial to rest the broken toe until the healing process is complete. Some of the symptoms that are experienced can consist of possible bruising under the skin, noticeable deformity, and the area may be tender and swollen. An effective treatment approach for fractured toes can include using the buddy taping method. This is done by taping the broken toe to the toe next to it, and this is helpful in providing the stability that is necessary for healing. If you have questions about broken toe recovery and how it affects running, please consult with a podiatrist.

Broken toes may cause a lot of pain and should be treated as soon as possible. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact Dr. Henry Miller from New Jersey. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.

What Is a Broken Toe?

A broken toe occurs when one or more of the toe bones of the foot are broken after an injury. Injuries such as stubbing your toe or dropping a heavy object on it may cause a toe fracture.

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • Swelling
  • Pain (with/without wearing shoes)
  • Stiffness
  • Nail Injury

Although the injured toe should be monitored daily, it is especially important to have a podiatrist look at your toe if you have severe symptoms. Some of these symptoms include worsening or new pain that is not relieved with medication, sores, redness, or open wounds near the toe.

People afflicted with diabetes often develop other complications such as poor circulation and neuropathy (nerve damage). Both of these conditions combined can make a person with diabetes more prone to develop ulcers on their feet, and limit their ability to detect and heal them. Foot ulcers that do not heal may lead to an infection, gangrene, or—in worst case scenarios—amputation. That is why it is important for diabetics to check their feet every morning and evening for any small abrasion or cut. New advancements in detection—such as socks that sense rises in temperature due to inflammation caused by an injury—could possibly be helpful. People with diabetes should always check first with a podiatrist who can advise on proper footwear and socks, and help them manage their diabetic foot conditions.

Diabetic foot care is important in preventing foot ailments such as ulcers. If you are suffering from diabetes or have any other concerns about your feet, contact Dr. Henry Miller from New Jersey. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes affects millions of people every year. The condition can damage blood vessels in many parts of the body, especially the feet. Because of this, taking care of your feet is essential if you have diabetes, and having a podiatrist help monitor your foot health is highly recommended.

The Importance of Caring for Your Feet

  • Routinely inspect your feet for bruises or sores.
  • Wear socks that fit your feet comfortably.
  • Wear comfortable shoes that provide adequate support.

Patients with diabetes should have their doctor monitor their blood levels, as blood sugar levels play such a huge role in diabetic care. Monitoring these levels on a regular basis is highly advised.

It is always best to inform your healthcare professional of any concerns you may have regarding your feet, especially for diabetic patients. Early treatment and routine foot examinations are keys to maintaining proper health, especially because severe complications can arise if proper treatment is not applied.

The feet are susceptible to a variety of ailments, and foot pain can impact all of our daily activities.  Foot pain can impact the heel, arch, top of the foot, and even the ball of the foot.  Plantar fasciitis is the most common source of heel pain, and the result of inflammation or a strain on the ligament connecting the toes to the heel.  Plantar fasciitis can also lead to heel spurs which are bony growths that are formed under the heel because of calcium buildups.  Bunions are bumps on the bottom of the big toe that occur when the big toe is pulled towards the rest of the foot.  Hammer toes occur when the toes stay bent at the joints which can lead to painful corns and calluses.  Diabetic patients are prone to developing neuropathy, which results in a tingling and burning sensation in the feet.  Because of the variety of potential injuries, patients who are suffering from pain in the feet should visit with a podiatrist for a diagnosis.
