Injured your toe? The pain from a fractured toe is immense and can be debilitating to the point where walking becomes difficult. Broken toes or toe fractures are common injuries especially among athletes and people with active lifestyles. The pinky toe is the most commonly injured digit with fractures occurring at the base of the toe.
