The broken toe would have to be X-Rayed to make sure there is no displacement and the bones are in the proper position. And then it will be decided the best treatment. Which sometimes can just be body splinting of the toe, if the fractured pieces are properly aligned.
It depends on the type of toe fracture. Xrays and evaluation would be recommended and depending on the type of fracture your foot and ankle specialist will be able to discuss the best treatment for you.
