Turf Toe

I have been afflicted with tuf toe going on for two weeks now. I'm seriously thinking of a trip to the orthopedist or podiatrist for a steriod injection. Anyone else been so unlucky to have turf toe? Lane -- Lp

Are you sure it is turf toe? It might be a medical condition called gout, which is a type of arthritis, instead.

I've had both. Turf toe occurs after an injury. Gout can too but usually just happens.

Yeah I've had it before too, hyperextension injury. Never had gout but seen more than enough come through our local ER

How did you manage the turf toe? Lp

For turf toe I recommend wearing a boot that keeps the joint from flexing, ice multiple times each day and anti-imflamatory meds. Pain meds can be helpful too.

Would that be the same as a stubbed toe?
