Turf Toe: This condition is essentially a sprain of the big toe joint. The ligaments that surround the big toe joint are injured. Sesamoid bones under the big toe joint can also be involved if the sprain is acute. Depending on the severity of the turf toe, certain orthotic modifications will help the big toe joint to be somewhat immobilized so that it can heal properly. The “Morton’s Extension” will decrease the motion of the toe, preventing further damage and pain.
