How long does a turf toe injury take to heal?

Asked a year ago

As the title suggests, does anyone know what the rough time frame for a turf toe injury is? I picked it up playing football and my toe has been swollen for about a week now.

The healing time of a turf toe, much like other sprains in other joints of the body, will depend on the degree of the injury. Turf toe injury is graded from 1 - 3. The higher the grade, the longer the healing time would be.

Grade 1 strains, they may heal partially or fully within a week with adequate rest. Grade 2 strains can take a bit longer, healing within 2 - 4 weeks, usually. Grade 3 strains can take anything from 2 to 6 months to fully heal and recover.In your case, allow for more time for the turf toe to heal and reduce your activity as much as you can.

Applying ice to the painful region, resting and making use of shoes with stiffer soles to reduce movement in the toe region are all extremely helpful in helping your turf toe recover. Orthotics with a rigid forefoot component can be further helpful in reducing stress placed onto the plantar aspect of the foot.
