Broken toes need time to heal, just like any other fracture. Exactly how long it takes depends partly on how severe the break was. Simple, well-aligned toe fractures may only take a few weeks to heal, while more serious ones that have to be manipulated back into place—or even fixed with surgery—can take much longer to recover. In general, expect roughly 4-8 weeks for your toe to be completely restored. Complications could potentially make the healing much longer, though, so if you’re ever concerned you might have broken a digit, don’t wait to get it checked and treated and risk additional problems.
