Golfer Lucas Glover has been determined to partake in the Wyndham Championship at any cost, even if it means playing with an broken toe. Glover broke the middle toe in his right foot on the crib of his 3 month old daughter Lucille, forcing him to withdraw from Wednesday’s pro-am.
However, that did not stop Glover from going into the open-round tee the next day, and is even more determined to go into the championship. “He was dead set on playing,” manager Marc Barnhardt said to Golf Channel, “he had to withdraw last year because of his knee and he considers this a home game. He’s determined to play if he can.”
Suffering from a broken toe can be a painful injury to deal with. It is beneficial to be in the care of a doctor who can treat your condition properly. A podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of New Jersey can assess your injury can provide you with the best treatment options for your needs.
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.
