Direct trauma or injury to a toe may cause a sprain to the toe ligaments and displacement of the phalange bones. Those with more lax ligaments or abnormal joint sockets are more at risk of dislocating a toe.
What is it?
A Dislocated Toe is the displacement of the phalange bones from their joint socket.
Common Signs & Symptoms:
Common symptoms are a severe pain at the time of injury, pain when attempting movement of the toe, swelling, bruising, numbness, and sometimes, deformity.
