Broken little toe?

How can I tell if I broke my little toe? I stubbed my little toe on a steel barbell last night and. It really hurts. I am still limping.

    Hello and thank you for your question. The only way to tell if your toe is broken is if you get an xray. This can be done at a Urgent Care Center or at a Podiatrists office. If you did in fact break the toe then you will need to tape the 5th / 4th toes together in a buddy splint for 4 – 6 weeks. Sometimes the toe needs to be reduced by a doctor which is why I always recommend people get the xray. I hope this helps!
