In brief: Depends
That depends on if your toe is healed, correctly aligned and the age of your injury.
As a general rule, activity of life is enough to work on range of motion after a big toe fracture. But if you are struggling with motion or prolonged pain than a visit to your physical therapist would be beneficial.

In brief: Perhaps
Depending on the fracture, the amount of motion lost, the need for motion, the pain involved, the treatment involved, and the degree of fracture, the may need to be some therapy to restore motion.
You will want to discuss this with your orthopedist, pcp and a physical therapist.
