Abstract

Turf toe injuries should be recognized and treated early to prevent long-term disability. The accurate clinical assessment and radiological evaluation of appropriate cases is important. Both conservative and surgical treatments play a major role in getting athletes back to their preinjury level. There are more recent reported case series and systemic reviews that encourage operative treatment as early as possible for grade III turf toe injury. If the patient presents late from a traumatic hallux injury with subsequent degenerative changes or has hallux rigidus from other etiologies, a first metatarsophalangeal arthrodesis should be considered to minimize pain and improve function.
