Hi there, we of the broken toe tribe. Maybe it is genetic, my mom and sister have a penchant for breaking toes too.
. One added bit - the million dollar athletes ( and me ) use arnica homeopathic as a tincture, or salve - some brands - Traumeel or Trauma Care as salve in a tube - I get it at my local drug store or health food store here in Canada - or the tincture from my local homeopath or Thompson Homeopathic in Toronto. Works for pain, bruising, healing... I wouldn't go anywhere without it. Please give that toe at least 6 weeks to heal before putting it to lots of walking and protect it even if it is just thick socks and moccasins. My families problem has been going barefoot and hooking a toe on whatever is nearby as we whiz past. You'd think we'd learn but the barefoot among us are incorrigible. Best wishes for healing from Juliana
