Turf Toe

Yes my son dropped a blocking sled, at football practice 1 day, on his foot. He then fell on it at school 1 day.. This all was last year. Then at wrestling practice we went to the Quack in the box (Dr.s care). They said He had Turf Toe. So now it has been 7 months with really nothing going on and didn't bother him. UNTIL football practice. It kills him to do the drills where he is down in his stance. He can run and it only bothers him. But if he curls his toes it kills him. We are doing rub downs and ice and compression. What else can I do for him? Do they make a splint? He is 6'0" 289 size 15 shoe. He is 13 years old. Please help.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
