Yes: Especially if the toe looks out of place compared to how it looked before the injury. You also want to make sure it sets and heals in proper alignment, to prevent future deformity and arthritis issues.

Immobilization: On occasion if it is displaced or dislocated it may require reduction or surgical management.
