How Did You Break Your Toe?
The pain in your toe is excruciating as you make your way back to your bed. You can't fall asleep again 'cause your toe HURTS too much.
Sound familiar? You have most likely broken your toe.
Causes of a Broken Toe
The scenario above is a typical example of a "traumatic" injury to the bones in your toes. Dropping something heavy on your toes can also be classified as a "trauma" injury.
A "Stress Fracture" is another way a toe can be broken. Stress fractures are from repeated actions causing stress to the bones that can result in a "hairline" fracture. Hairline fractures often go undetected, as the onset is more gradual.
Sports athletes and dancers often have stress fractures in their toes, but they are not alone. Individuals with osteoporosis, flat feet, and excessive body weight can also develop stress fractures in their toes.
How can I tell if I have Broken my Toe?
First of all... you will notice the pain in the specific toe or toes. The level of pain may range from a mild ache to a "sharp dagger-like" jab. If you are having trouble walking or bending the toe... there is a good chance you may have broken your toe. .
Look for swelling, inflammation, and discoloration in the tissues, as these can be indications of a broken or fractured toe.
To find out for sure... a trip to your doctor to get an X-ray may be the only way to confirm your suspicions.
Stagnant blood is a prime source of disease and poor health.
How can Prolotex™ Socks Help a Broken Toe?
Prolotex™ FIR Socks are different than other socks because they are made with a special bio-ceramic thread that gives off Far Infrared energy waves. Far Infrared energy is very effective in reducing inflammation.
Reducing inflammation is key to improving the circulation and flushing out the stagnant blood and fluid that is pooled in the tissues between the cells. Getting rid of the "dead" or used blood is vital to the healing process. Soft tissue damage and broken bones will heal faster with improved circulation.
