Turf toe

Find treatment for turf toe.

Turf toe is a sprain of the big toe joint resulting from injury during sports activities. The most common symptoms of turf toe include pain, swelling, and limited joint movement at the base of one big toe. The symptoms develop slowly and gradually get worse over time if it’s caused by repetitive injury. If it’s caused by a sudden forceful motion, the injury can be painful immediately and worsen within 24 hours. Sometimes when the injury occurs, a “pop” can be felt. Usually the entire joint is involved, and toe movement is limited. Our podiatrist can offer treatment options for toe injuries.
