If broken: You need to know if the joint is affected as those toes may need surgical repair. A jammed toe could possibly be unnamed but again you want to know if any fractures prior to performing the "un jamming". Best to see foot doc.

See below.: Initially, apply ice and elevate. If severe or persistent, see podiatrist to get proper diagnosis. Often in uncomplicated, non-displaced breaks, the toe can be splinted or taped to the next toe. Wear a loose fitting or open toed shoe.
