Ask the Foot Doc – Healing a Broken Toe

Question:

How long should a broken toe be bandaged for it to heal properly?

Answer:

The stability and severity of the toe fracture will determine the healing time.  This can be evaluated by an x-ray.  If stable and properly treated, most toe fractures will heal in about 4-6 weeks.  Other factors that can affect the healing time of a broken bone include nutrition and smoking.
