Queens Park Rangers Football Club based in White City, London is considering allowing midfielder Niko Kranjcar to play the next couple of games despite having a broken toe. Kranjcar has become a very important player to the team recently and all, including himself and his coaches, would like him play QPR’s next game against Liverpool.
If Kranjar chooses to play, he risks hurting the injury even more and potentially keeping himself from playing for even longer than if he just let the current injury heal. “They were talking about Niko being out for five or six weeks, but he wants to get it injected and play.” states QPR manager, Harry Redknapp.
Broken toes are unpleasant injuries that can make walking tough and can cause a lot of problems if not healed properly. To get assistance with this type of condition, call Dr. Carl Ingrassia of Fords foot and Ankle Care. Dr. Ingrassia will diagnose which bone in your toe is broken and get you an appropriate form of 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). Another type of trauma that can break a toe is repeated activity that places stress on the toe for prolonged periods of time.
Symptoms of a Broken Toe
- throbbing pain
- bruising on the skin and toenail
- the inability to move the toe with ease.
- toe appears crooked or disfigured
- tingling or numbness in the toe
- injured person experiences fever or chills throughout their body, and when there is an
- open, bleeding wound present on the toe.
Generally, a minor toe break will heal without long-term complications, but it is important to discontinue activities that put pressure on the toe. It is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated on pillows. Swelling can be alleviated by placing an ice pack on the broken toe for 15 minutes every two hours during the first two days after the fracture.
