Dez Bryant of the Dallas Cowboys received a therapeutic injection to reinforce his recovery from a fractured right foot. The therapeutic injection included bone marrow stem cells that were taken from his hip and then injected into his ankle. Team owner Jerry Jones stressed that the procedure was not an indication for a setback in Bryant’s rehab. “There is not a concern about his progress,” Jones shared. “That fact that he can do that (injection therapy) is a positive. This was not something to address something that was a surprise or anything. It was something to get him some additional strength.”   

Foot therapy is necessary for those recovering from both foot deformities and foot injuries. If you have concerns regarding therapy, speak to Dr. Michael H. Wynn, DPM of Foot Care Associates of Texas. Dr. Wynn can answer any of your podiatric questions.

Most common injuries

People who are constantly on their feet are prone to a variety of injuries. Therefore, it is important to take part in physical therapy in order to get back on the right track quickly.

What to do when injured

Physical Therapy – This specialized treatment will focus on the affected area, speeding up recovery and the overall healing process. This is important for those wanting to get back into the game quickly. It is a proven method that has helped millions of people return from any injury.

During physical therapy you will undergo regimented training to get back into full form. Training is often very difficult, especially at first when the foot feels weak. These are some steps physical therapy often involves:

  1. Basic stretching & twisting exercises – getting the feet’s mobility and flexibility up.
  2. Massaging – the therapist will massage the injured area in order to activate the muscles and relax them.
  3. Strengthening Exercises – this allows the muscles in the affected area to regain their full strength, a vital step towards full recovery.

Heralded to be one of the top strawweight women’s fighters in the world, Jessica Aguilar was set to have her debut match against Claudia Gadelha for number one contender. Nearly a month from her fight, however, Aguilar suffered an injury during training. “I had a broken toe and my foot was fractured, my right foot … It happened during sparring of my fight camp and from then I only had three sparring sessions and drilled and trained as best as I could the last month of camp.” Ultimately Gadelha beat her in a lopsided decision, with Aguilar now reproaching her own choice to stay in the fight knowing she was injured. “It was a decision I chose to make, and it wasn’t the right decision. I won’t make that decision ever again.”

A broken toe is extremely painful and needs immediate attention. If you have any concerns about your feet contact Dr. Michael H. Wynn, DPM of Foot Care Associates of Texas. Dr. Wynn will treat your foot and ankle 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).

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • throbbing pain
  • swelling
  • bruising on the skin and toenail
  • the inability to move the toe
  • toe appears crooked or disfigured
  • tingling or numbness in the toe

Generally, it is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated.

Severe toe fractures may be treated with a splint, cast, and in some cases, minor surgery. Due to its position and the pressure it endures with daily activity, future complications can occur if the big toe is not properly treated.
