About Toe Fractures
What is it and what are my treatment options?
Toe Fracture Overview
A toe fracture is a broken toe bone. Toe fracture pain is often severe and gets worse if the fracture is not treated properly. An appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) foot and ankle specialist should be made as soon as possible.
Symptoms & Causes
Toe fracture symptoms include:
- A visible anatomical deformity
- Severe pain
- Throbbing pain
Common toe fracture causes are:
- A heavy object falling on the toe
- High impact sports
- Kicking an object
Nonsurgical treatment options are used to treat many toe fractures. After a thorough evaluation, a CONA foot and ankle specialist may recommend:
- A hard-soled shoe
- A walking boot
- Pain and anti-inflammatory medications Orthotics
- Rest, ice, compression, elevation (RICE)
Surgery may be recommended to treat severely broken toes. A CONA foot and ankle specialist aligns and fixates the broken bone.

Read Their Success Stories
I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!
This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.
These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
