In brief: Likely
Depending on the location and whether a joint is affected can alter treatment plans.
In a non-displaced, non-articular (not involving a joint) we often buddy splint the affected toe to it's neighbor for 4 weeks. If the joint is involved there are times when surgery is considered to either remove the fracture fragment or primarily repair the fracture with fixation.
