Complications of Improper Treatment

Broken toe should be treated properly, otherwise, it will result to more serious complications. Some broken toes may heal on their own, but having it checked by a podiatrist will ensure you that it will properly be fixed, and go back to its pre-injury state. One serious complication is bone deformity. When this happens, toes and the entire foot will have limited mobility.

Another serious complication is arthritis. When the fracture is left untreated, bones will not align, and it will be painful to move. Constant friction could lead to inflammation and pain. This means you will more likely suffer from long-term pain, dysfunction, and possible subsequent operation. For proper treatment of broken toes, come to Mattison Podiatry Group.
