To address the pain and swelling caused by turf toe, ice is always beneficial. It is recommended that you ice your toe either by using a bag of ice or immersing the toe and lower foot in an ice bath for 10 minutes.
Turf toe can be problematic during soccer and other sports that require an athlete to run and cut on uneven surfaces. There are several taping procedures as well as rigid inserts for the shoe that can help support the injured toe so that you can participate in sports. Consult with your athletic trainer on the best option. It is also a good idea to look at the cause of the turf toe. Some cases can be caused by ill-fitting or worn-out cleats and may require purchasing new shoes.
