Turf toe is essentially a sprain or hyperextension of the toe. The toes, especially the big toe, are bending firmly against the ground while the foot falls forward.
When the toe joint is extended beyond its normal range of motion, the ligaments underneath the big toe are stretched and the result is turf toe.
The physicians at University Foot and Ankle Institute have decades of extensive experience in the treatment of traumas to the foot and ankle, including turf toe. They use the latest technologies available for the most accurate diagnosis and treatment possible.
