In brief: Rest/ immobilize

Ice and anti-inflammatory medications may help control the pain.
Unfortunately the best treatment for turf toe is rest. In severe cases, the use of crutches and complete avoidance of weight bearing may be required.  (www.Drmarkgalland.Com 10/16/2012).

Can take up to three weeks to heal or more. If not feeling better after rest or ice, see a podiatrist to help immobilize while healing or possible physical therapy.

In brief: Same as for sprains

Turf toe is an sprain injury at the joint between the big toe and the forefoot.
Cold packs can help. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for 3 days, no weight-bearing for 3 days, taping or splinting the toe joint, wearing a non-flexible shoe, avoiding sports for a few days, etc..., all can help relieve the pain.
