Toe (Phalange) Fracture
Your podiatrist can diagnose a fractured toe by reviewing your medical history and injury circumstances, and examining you. An X-ray will be taken to see the fracture.
Am I at Risk
You may have an increased risk of a toe injury if you do not wear shoes. People that participate in certain sports or ballet may have an increased risk of toe fracture.
