    Hello and thank you for your question. Without seeing your foot or reviewing an x-ray of your foot is difficult for me to accurately say the cause of your pain.

    If you are suspecting that your toe was broken during the accident then it may be worth seeing a Podiatrist and getting an x-ray. If you do not have a fracture but still experience the clicking it could be some residual inflammation in the joint which will slowly dissipate.

    Icing the area, mobilization/distraction to the joint or a steroid injection to the joint will provide relief as well. It is not uncommon to have stiffness in a joint that was injured and inflamed.

    I hope this helps!
