Last nights class was good as always but it wasn’t without its mishaps. Josh, while doing a umpa broke his smallest toe. Yes, that is a picture of his foot, courtesy of Mark. The smallest toe doesn’t look broken. Maybe a little swollen but Josh said it was bending in all the wrong places. It seemed to be a very clean snap and didn’t hurt much according to him. I imagine today it is a different story. Mark taped it up and Josh went back to rolling.
So what do you do for a broken toe? I couldn’t think of anything but taping and basic First Aid, R.I.C.E. – Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. I figure some of you out there might have done a toe or two and have some advice I can share with Josh. Any suggestions or things to look out for?
What about knuckles? I had a hold of a gi lapel and my opponent yanked it away. My middle finger made a sickening pop, that didn’t hurt much, and we went on. After my finger was sore and has developed a knot on the side. When I showed it to my doctor he checked to make sure my tendons were intact but that was about it. Any one have a similar injury and know what’s going on with my finger?
