      Hi Erica,

      Try some of the toe rehabilitation exercises listed in the sprained toe section. You should be actively trying to move the toe on your own. If you’re unable to do so after a few weeks, seeking medical attention will be the next step. Sometime ignoring a joint for a long period of time while it recovers can limit range of motion. It’s your job to try and start to work movement back into the area, but if that’s not possible than a doctor may be required.

      Hi David,

      For an acute condition such as you describe you would be best off seeing a specialist. A phone consultation is unlikely to provide much support and you would have much better results compiling a list of your symptoms, the time you’ve had them and any other relevant or important information to take to a podiatrist or toe specialist. Some conditions require personal attention that the Internet or phone cannot provide.

      Hi Ranj,

      Unfortunately this isn’t quite descriptive enough in order for us to make an analysis. More symptoms or a detailed description would help us to get a fuller picture.
