Couldn't find what you looking for?


I fell off a bottom step and felt a "pop". Now I have brusing and swelling and I can't move my right big toe upwards. Does this sound like a break or a severe sprain?



I think that your bone must have broken because you are not able to move your toe. This is very serious condition and you need to have a scan of your foot to see what really happened. There is a chance that you will need a surgery in order to fix this. Also there is a chance that your tendons have ripped as well. What were you doing when this happened? I know that this can happen if you run and your foot is overused. You have to be careful with this, and don’t wait any longer and go and see your doctor. I hope this helped.


All the best to you,
