I injured my foot and had an x-ray. I was told I fractured my toe. What exercises can I do? I would like to still do cardio workouts. Thanks!
It depends on the severity of the toe fracture. For a minor, stable toe fracture, splint the toe and wear a stiff, supportive shoe during workouts. Low-impact exercises using an elliptical machine or a recumbent bike are good options. Swimming is also very low-impact and great for cardio. Check with your doctor before beginning any exercises.
If you have a foot injury or suspect a toe fracture, please call us at (425) 455-0936 to schedule an appointment. At CarePlus Foot and Ankle Specialists, we have digital x-rays to diagnose any fractures.
