ND14.2/S93 Dislocation of other toe



Dislocation of one of the other toes is an injury that occurs when the joint between two bones of the toe is forced out of its normal position. It is usually caused by direct trauma or a twisting force to the toe, or by a medical condition such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout.


Dislocation of other toes is usually diagnosed by a physical examination of the affected toe. The doctor will examine the toe for signs of swelling, pain, deformity, or tenderness. X-rays may also be taken to rule out any fractures or other injuries.

Differential diagnosis

Other conditions that may cause similar symptoms include fractures, tendon injuries, sprains, and neuromas.


Treatment for dislocation of other toes usually involves immobilizing the toe with a splint or cast and providing rest, ice, elevation, and over-the-counter pain medications. If the dislocation is severe, surgery may be needed to realign the bones and repair any damaged ligaments or tendons.


The prognosis for dislocation of other toes is generally good, especially if the injury is treated promptly. Most people can expect a full recovery within a few weeks of treatment.
