Other factors significantly related to the incidence of turf-toe included player age (P range of ankle dorsiflexion (P Turf- toe injury resulted in significantly decreased range of motion of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (P. Normal walking puts a great deal of stress on main joint of the great toe – the 1st metatarsophalangeal (1st MTP joint). Kneeling, crouching, running, wearing high-heel shoes, and other activities put even more stress upon it. Arthritis of the great toe joint (1st MTP joint) is fairly common, and can be painful and quite limiting.
A sprained toe refers to a toe with a torn ligament. It’s not as severe as a break, which involves a bone injury, but it can still be quite painful. We’ll go over the symptoms of a broken toe. Traumatic injuries to the great toe and ﬁrst MTP joint require accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. These may be associated with signiﬁcant long-term morbidity. References 1.

Turf toe is a hyper-extension or impaction injury of the great toe joint that injures the joint cartilage and soft tissue structures supporting the great toe joint. Turf toe is most often described as a sports-related injury but can also be caused by industrial or motor vehicle injuries. Turf toe is found more in men than in women. The term “turf toe” was initially described by Bowers in as a sprain of the plantar capsule–ligament of the great toe metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint. It occurs secondary to a forceful hyperextension of the first MTP joint. Injury to the plantar plate of the great toe .

The continued forward motion of the leg over the fixed forefoot produces hyper dorsiflexion of the first MTP joint and increased on the plantar plate and capsule. Taken to an extreme, these forces may continue and produce a dorsal impaction injury to the cartilage and bone of the metatarsal head.
Predisposing risk factor for Turf Toe include. Prior injury that results in hallux limitus is positively associated with turf toe injury involving the contralateral limb, while decreased range of motion at the first MTP joint has been disputed as a predictive factor.
19 Hallux valgus is often associated with turf toe, and may be a complicating factor in conservative or surgical treatment. Get this from a library.
First metatarsophalangeal joint range of motion as a factor in turf toe injuries. [Karen Elizabeth Eggert]. Although several variations exist, the classic definition of turf toe is a hyperdorsiflexion injury of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint, as displayed in the images below.
Since approximately the s, turf toe has received increased attention in the media because of its effect on college-level and professional athletes.
Turf toe is a sprain to the metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP)—the largest joint in the big toe, which connects the first bone in the toe and the first long bone in the foot. When the MTP joint is injured or sprained, it can lead to varying degrees of pain, bruising, swelling, and sensitivity below the joint or at the ball of the foot.
The use of artificial turf in the United States has created a dramatic increase in first metatarsophalangeal joint dorsiflexion injuries.
Turf toe has been reported to occur in athletes who. Turf toe is a sprain of the main joint of the big toe. It occurred more frequently in American football players after artificial turf became more common on playing fields.
Although often associated with football, turf toe occurs in a wide range of sports and activities. Turf toe is a term used to describe myriad injuries to the metatarsophalangeal complex of the great toe, which have been associated with the introduction of artificial turf surfaces in sport.
Turf toe is a relatively rare but serious injury to the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint. The injury is most commonly seen in high level athletes due to hyperdorsiflexion of the first MTP joint. Turf toe can cause significant morbidity and loss of playing time in elite athletes. Turf toe and injury to the first metatarsophalangeal joint are relatively common injuries in athletes, but few researchers have detailed the operative and nonoperative treatments of plantar-plate disruption in these patients.
We examine 3 cases that occurred over 4 seasons on a collegiate football team. Limited Range of Motion. Limited range of motion is a term used when a joint has a reduction in its ability to move. This can be due to injuries to the soft tissues surrounding a joint.
It may also be caused by diseases such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or other types of arthritis. Turf toe is a term used to describe a hyperextension injury to the first metatarsophalangeal joint.
Although the vast majority of turf toe injuries can be treated successfully without operative intervention, there are instances where surgery is required to allow the athlete to return to play.
Accurate assessment of range of motion of the first metatarsophalangeal joint may assist the physical therapist when dealing with plantar fasciitis.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is any difference in the amount of flexion and/ or extension at the first metatarsophalangeal joint in runners with plantar fasciitis.
Introduction. Turf toe is a common injury in a variety of different athletes, especially those involved in contact sports played on rigid surfaces.1, 2 It is caused by a hyperextension injury to the plantar plate and sesamoid complex of the hallux metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint.
This usually occurs when the forefoot is fixed on the ground and the hallux MTP joint is positioned in. The sesamoid bone may fracture or proximally migrate (Figure 3). An occult fracture of the proximal phalanx may be present.
When you classify these injuries, they can be a sprain, partial tear, or a complete tear.  Surgery may be recommended for turf toe if symptoms do not improve after several months of rest and physical therapy, if joint range of motion is severely limited, or.
Foot deformities such as hammer toe. A hammer toe or contracted toe is a deformity of the proximal interphalangeal joint of the second, third, or fourth toe causing it to be permanently bent, resembling a hammer. Mallet toe is a similar condition affecting the distal interphalangeal joint.
Background. Turf toe injury was first described in by Bowers and Martin at the University of West Virginia. 1 It describes a hyperextension injury to the hallux metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint that injures the plantar soft tissue structures of the MTP joint.
The name originated following the increase in these injuries seen in American footballers after the introduction of firm artificial. Doctors grade turf toe injuries from 1 to 3 according to the extent of the damage to the MTP joint, sesamoids, and surrounding tissues, ligaments, and tendons.
This part of the foot is. The metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of the great toe receives the majority of its stability from its capsular and ligamentous structures. A tear or sprain of the capsuloligamentous structures of the hallux MTP is commonly referred to as a turf toe injury, due to its historically high association with synthetic turf.
DeLee () Orthopedic Sports Medicine, p. ; Greene () Musculoskeletal Care, AAOS, p. ; Title () Orthop Clin North Am [PubMed]. Persistent pain and joint stiffness of the big toe is the most common sequelae of turf toe injuries if left untreated. Turf toe injuries lead to avulsion (tearing) of the plantar plate.
This may result to subluxation (partial dislocation) of the sesamoid bones. Complete dislocation of the first metatarsophalangeal joint .First metatarsophalangeal joint passive range of motion.
OrthopaedicsOne Articles. In: OrthopaedicsOne - The Orthopaedic Knowledge Network. Created Last modified ver. 5. Retrieved.Nonsurgical Strategies. Most MTP joint-related problems are managed nonsurgically.
For example, in the case of a bunion (a common MTP problem), a doctor will often recommend that the person wear proper shoes, even custom orthotics (special shoe inserts made for your feet). For bunions, a shoe with a wide toe box, and one that is soft and stretchy can be helpful.
