Former World no. 1 Ana Ivanovic reportedly sustained a broken toe after her defeat in the first round of the Australian Open against Lucie Hradecka. The site Vecernjih Novosti stated, “Ana has broken a toe—told by the team of the Serbian—she needed a break. Definitely she will not play in Fed Cup, maybe she will return in Dubai (tournament scheduled February 15th-21st)”. While her absence from the Federation Cup match against Austria would normally not be a cause for concern, Ivanovic must play in at least one match for her national team if she wants to participate in the Olympic Games. Ivanovic’s participation in the miniature play-off will be essential with Rio de Janeiro getting closer and closer.

If you have sustained a broken toe and are seeking treatment, contact podiatrist Dr. Greg Khaimov, DPM of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Dr. Khaimov will provide you with quality treatment and attend to all of 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). Another type of trauma that can break a toe is repeated activity that places stress on the toe for prolonged periods of time.

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • throbbing pain
  • swelling
  • bruising on the skin and toenail
  • the inability to move the toe with ease.
  • toe appears crooked or disfigured
  •  tingling or numbness in the toe
  • injured person experiences fever or chills throughout their body, and when there is an open, bleeding wound present on the toe.

Generally, a minor toe break will heal without long-term complications, but it is important to discontinue activities that put pressure on the toe.
