Turf toe

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

The toe is not the biggest part of your body, but mess it up in some way and it can make your life miserable.

Dr. Larry Benson is helping his patients with turf toe at CJW Sports Medicine.

A turf toe is the hyperextension sprain of the big toe joint capsule. 

Avoid this annoying problem by wearing appropriate shoes for your activity. 

Treat the problem with ice, anti-inflammatory meds and rest.  Immobilization of the joint may be required in severe cases.
