    damnit..broke a toe.

    broke my right pinky toe last week. either broke it or dislocated it...i think it's the latter. but anyways. any advice on how to deal with this? let it heal? tape it up daily? or only in training?

    the funny thing was it doesnt hurt when i walk and i just realized today that it's dislocated cause it's bent funny. lol.

    I have had that for the past three months. Sucks cause it keeps breaking, but . . . MUST TRAIN . . .

    Next week I will have a vacation in Paris, so that will be a nice chance to let it heal . . .

    talked to a doctor at my gym, he said there's not much point in getting an x-ray cause it's for sure dislocated or broken. so just let it heal. bleh. and yea...MUST KEEP TRAINING.

    Isn't it normal to make sure the bone is set correctly any more? For that you probably need a doctor.

    Similarly with dislocations, you sure it's back in it's proper place? Again, a doctor is the best to advise you.

    Is that doc you spoke of an actual qualified doctor, or just someone at the club who has a 1st aid cert?

    The doc at the gym was right, they don't x-ray toes. but you do need a doc to look at it to make sure it is straight before tapping it. You don't want the thing to heal wrong and have to have it broken again.

    i would recommend holding off on taping it up till you see that doctor. you wouldn't wanna tape it and force it to align if it's out of it's socket, or whatever holds the toe in place...you could just be bending it or further pulling it out of its norm by doing that.

    This happened to me (again) several months back. It's probably dislocated and not broken. You should see a doctor to make sure it's set straight. I didn't see a doc for a couple weeks and by then it was very much set. It was OK, but not perfect. You'll probably get the X-Ray and they'll splint it if it is not straight for a week or so. Then you'll have to buddy tape it to your other toe. Start wearing shoes in class if you're allowed. Whenever I dislocate toes it's because I'm not wearing shoes.
