I've had turf toe for over a year now. It will start to get better but prolonged walking brings the pain back. Dont think fractured bc not extreme pain?

In brief: Chronic
Turf toe can be unrelenting and chronic.
It has ended the careers of many athletes. Antiinflammatories, injections, shoe modification, and surgery may be of help.

In brief: Exercise and roids
The first ray(metatarsal) is elevated in chronic turf toe.
Low-dye to depress the first ray helps . Ice it down at least 200 times a day. Stretch the top of the foot for thirty seconds every other day. Pick up marbles with your toes and put them in a cup. A short course of oral steroids is helpful.
