toddler broken toe?

I think my two year old may have broken her second toe. She is very specific about where it hurts and limps/asks to be carried but will also occaisionally take a couple of steps before complaining about it hurting. This just happened tonight so I gave her motrin to sleep and will see how it is tomorrow but my question is should I bother to have it X-Rayed? Is there anything they would actually do for it, other than simply treat the pain, which we are doing? She gets quite freaked out by the doctor and I don't want to put her through an X-ray if it really isn't necessary. What are your thought? Thanks so much.

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