Mechanism of turf toe

Mechanism Of Turf Toe

Turf Toe occurs when the great toe bends severely upwards and it injury's the soft tissue around the great toe. This is one think any player wants to hear because this basically makes the foot useless in sports. The symptoms for turf toe are swelling and pain at the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of the big toe, along with the 1st metatarsal bone, and having pain and tenderness when bending or stretching the big toe. If the athlete doesn’t look after this injury then he/she could develop Hallux Limitus.

  • The doctor will ask you to explain how you hurt your foot as best as you can, if you play a sport, the type of shoes you wear, and/or your history of foot injuries.

  • Comparing the injured foot to the uninjured.

  • Looking for the pattern and location of the swelling.

  • The doctor will then ask you to get an imaging test, like an X-ray, MRI, Bone scan, and/or CT Scan.

  • The doctor will then make the diagnoses based on the test results and physical examination.
