The onset of most toe injuries happens without any discernible symptoms, making it one of the hardest foot-related conditions to be diagnosed early. Toe injuries are commonly seen among people who tend to overuse their toes on a particular kind of surface. Such surf-related toe injuries are commonly seen among professionals like ball-room dancers and athletes who continuously run upon a particular kind of turf. The most common example is that of soccer players and high-impact athletes, like those involved in long-distance running. Surprisingly, the incidence of toe injuries and the resulting toe malformations is less prevalent among athletes who run outdoors, i.e. don't practice regularly on the same turf. Due to the repeated use of certain ligaments in the toe region, a gradual gradient of compression sets-in that slowly begins to alter the natural form of the toe. These injuries are often regarded as turf-toe conditions.

Understanding Toe Injuries

Most healthcare practitioners regard bunion (big-toe distention) and related malformations a serious toe disorder since it cannot be cured with medications or with conventional, physical therapy approach. Other toe conditions that can result due to the above-listed conditions include a painful hallux or bone spurs. It has been noticed that most of these issues originated in the small area between the phalanges and the metatarsals that are the prominent bones of the toe. An injured big toe can be very painful and the entire area becomes very tender, giving rise to a shooting pain every time it is used or even, slightly pressed upon.

While putting the affected area in a cast, i.e. immobilizing it, can alleviate the pain, it does little to actually cure the condition. Further, the chances of relapse are significantly high in big-toe injuries. It has been noticed that once injured, the phalange-metatarsal joint becomes increasingly vulnerable and repeatedly gets stressed every time the affected patient returns to his normal schedule. Further, the big-toe injuries are also aggravated if the manner in which the sole of the foot is landed is wrongful. This creates undue pressure on the joints, making them more susceptible. This often leads to excessive extension of the ligaments that causes the relapse of the painful condition.
