Prevention

  • Wear the correct shoes for your particular activity.
     
  • Wear hiking shoes or boots in rough terrain.
     
  • Don't continue to wear any sports shoe if it is worn unevenly.
  • The toe box in "steel-toe" shoes should be deep enough to accommodate your toes comfortably.
     
  • Always wear hard-top shoes when operating a lawn mower or other grass-cutting equipment.
     
  • Don't walk barefoot on paved streets or sidewalks.
     
  • Watch out for slippery floors at home and at work. Clean up obviously dangerous spills immediately.
     
  • If you get up during the night, turn on a light. Many fractured toes and other foot injuries occur while attempting to find one's way in the dark.
