Damon Jackson Suffered Broken Toe During Practice

Damon Jackson suffered a broken toe while practicing push kicks before his meeting with Georgian wrestler Levan Makashvili. “It snapped. I felt it, and as soon as it happened, I knew it was broke,” Jackson said of his broken toe. The next day Jackson found his foot swollen and badly bruised. He said that he was determined to battle through the injury.

A broken toe can be very painful and lead to complications if not properly fixed. If you have any concerns about your feet, consult with Dr. Jon M. Sherman of Kentlands Foot & Ankle Center. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.

What to Know About a Broken Toe

Although most people try to avoid foot trauma such as banging, stubbing, or dropping heavy objects on their feet, the unfortunate fact is that it is a common occurrence. Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture).

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • throbbing pain
  • swelling
  • bruising on the skin and toenail
  • the inability to move the toe
  • toe appears crooked or disfigured
  • tingling or numbness in the toe

Generally, it is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated.

Severe toe fractures may be treated with a splint, cast, and in some cases, minor surgery. Due to its position and the pressure it endures with daily activity, future complications can occur if the big toe is not properly treated.
