A dislocated toe may happen from a blow or jamming the toe, such as bumping the toe into furniture or during <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/sports-safety.html/">sports</a>.</p> <h3>More to Know</h3> <p>An <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/xray-foot.html/">X-ray</a> is used diagnose a dislocated toe. The bones may move back into place on their own, or a doctor may gently put the joint back with a quick maneuver called a reduction. In some cases, surgery is needed to repair the joint.</p> <p>To keep the joint from dislocating again, the injured toe might be taped to the neighboring toe ("buddy taping"). Buddy taping is generally needed for a few weeks. Gentle foot or toe exercises to help reduce stiffness might also be recommended.</p> <h3>Keep in Mind</h3> <p>With proper treatment, most people who dislocate a toe can gradually return to their normal activities. The toe may feel sore or stiff for a while.</p> <p><em>All A to Z dictionary entries are regularly reviewed by KidsHealth medical experts.</em></p>
