What to Do for a Broken Toe
If a broken toe doesn't require medical care you can care for a broken toe at home by following these steps.
- Rest the toe and avoid putting pressure it; use crutches, a boot, or cane if necessary.
- Ice the toe 15-20 minutes every couple of hours for the first two or three days.
- Keep the foot elevated above the level of the heart to help decrease swelling.
