Re: Broken Toe Looks Weird

Usually I tell patients to keep a broken toe splinted for up to 6 weeks. It is probably too soon for you to try moving the toe. Let it heal some more. The swelling is (hopefully) temporary. If you have concerns after several more weeks about the healing get another x-ray.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
