Immobile it: If the displaced fracture is able to be reduce and maintained by the buddy splinting, either a surgical shoe or cam walker should be worn until the fracture has healed.

I have a callus on my big toe and it has made half of my toe numb. Is this normal? I am a dancer and wear tight pointe shoes that rub against my toe.
Maybe: It depends on whether you are talking about fusing the toe (interphalangeal) joint or the joint where the toe meets the metatarsal bone (metatarsophalangeal). The former shouldn't affect activity or shoe wear. If the later joint is fused, you'll be able to run but wearing heels will depend on what angle the toe is fused. A higher angle will allow heels but the toe will stick up in the air in flats. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Broke foot per ER doc. Big toe points toward others slightly. Getting a cam walker but should I buddy tape big toe to next toe. In a lot of pain still.
Depends: Hi-- so it depends on what is broken. It appears as if you have a slight bunion deformity...The "big toe points toward others"--nothing to worry about as long as it is not the big toe that is broken and/or big toe is not painful. We do not buddy tape big toes and splinting is not really appropriate for bunions. Let me know what bone is broken and we can go further with options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can wearing a lose dress shoe cause ankle pain? I buy my dress shoes to fit my right foot which has a bunion, so the left shoe is a little lose.
Yes: Since this would affect your gate and stability of your joints. In addition, the rubbing from a loose shoe may cause skin irritation as well. Perhaps you need to talk to a shoe repair shop to find out if they can stretch out a proper size shoe for the right foot to accommodate the bunion. ...Read more
Exercise!: How to stay in shape despite an(y) injury? Do all the other exercises that don't aggravate that specific injury. For instance, if running/walking aggravate your broken toe, avoid that activity for a while until you've healed. But don't give up strength training such as chin ups or pull ups, planks, even one legged push ups. Just use your imagination to find exercises that don't require using toe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
