Turf toe injuries many times are left improperly managed and can lead to chronic pain, reduced push-off strength, and eventually joint deformity if left untreated. Turf toe describes an injury to the bottom surface of the big toe joint, known as the plantar metatarsophalangeal-sesamoid complex. Turf toe injuries occur when the joint of the big toe gets forced into hyperextension. This typically happens to football players when someone falls on their foot forcing the heel to drive forward over a planted big toe. This motion typically injures the joint capsule and ligaments on the bottom side of the foot, leaving it very painful. While most common in footballers, there is also a high incidence of turf toe injuries in rugby and soccer players as well. This article will cover a rehab guideline for getting back on the field after an old turf toe injury, in addition, we've included a FREE workout with the best turf toe exercises!
