The bone will appear completely normal within one to two years of healing. However, is you walk on the broken foot during the callus forming stage you will prolong the healing time of the bone. If you continue to reinjury the broken spot if may cause deformity of the bones.

It can take six to eight weeks for a fractured toe to heal. In order to expedite that process, you are best off considering what you can do to keep your cardiovascular base at the front end of injury.

Put simply, yes....but you probably won't want to. Between the pain and risk of reinjury, walking with a broken big toe will literally be a pain. If you must walk with a broken big toe, you should buddy-tape it to its neighbor and wear closed-toe shoes for added protection. If you have access to a cane or walking stick, using it can help protect your big toe from becoming too involved in helping balance and stabilize yourself as you walk.

This depends on which toe you have injured and how badly. It will also depend on how old you are, as bones generally take longer to heal the older you are. Broken big toe: 2-3 weeks in a walking boot or cast, then; 3-4 weeks in a stiff-soled shoe. Return to work and sport in 6-8 weeks is usual. Broken lesser toes, including broken pinky toe:

If the break is a simple fracture, in which the parts of your bone are still lined up properly, your doctor will probably put you in a walking boot for about three weeks, Dr. King says. The walking boot keeps your toes immobile so the bones can knit back together in alignment.

What you can do about a broken toe. Doctors will usually suggest you treat a broken toe at home first if: it's not your big toe; the bone is not sticking out of your foot; your toe is not pointing at an odd angle; there's no wound on your toe; Broken toes usually heal within 4 to 6 weeks, but it can sometimes take several months.

If you have a broken toe: A broken toe is a fractured bone. This type of injury results in either a very limited range of motion or even the inability to move the toe at all. In addition, the toe will swell and bruise. It’ll hurt to walk and the pain and swelling will persist for days without any signs of improvement.

If you suspect your toe (or any bone) is broken, hot water or any heat applied to the area can make it worse! Heat causes an increase in blood flow, which leads to more swelling and more pain. Instead, apply an ice pack for a maximum of 15-20 minutes to help numb your toe and decrease swelling.

The toe will begin to swell as the fractured bone bleeds, resulting in bruising as the blood reaches the skin. You may also see blood pool beneath the toenail. In many cases an injury to the toe also involves damage to the toenail, which further increases your risk of infection should the toenail expose the tissue underneath. The fracture usually makes it extremely painful to walk, although this is not always the case. Even if you can still manage to walk on the toe, that doesn ...

If you drop something on your big toe or stub it on the sofa and break it, you may be surprised to find that you will need a cast or walking boot. The big toe plays a big role in balance and maintaining a normal walking pattern; therefore, it is important that it heals correctly. You can expect to be in a short walking boot or cast with a supportive toe plate for two to three weeks, followed by a rigid sole shoe for three to four weeks.

Fast : 100 to 119 steps per minute / 11 minutes per mile. Normal : 80 to 99 steps per minute / 15 minutes per mile. Relaxed : 60 to 79 steps per minute / 20 minutes per mile. Check out the miles chart below to get an idea of how long it would take to walk a set number of miles at a relaxed, normal or fast pace.
Typically, adults walk at a speed of 3 to 4 miles per hour, and therefore walk a mile in around 15 to 20 minutes. Some people will be faster or slower than this, and walking speed can even be influenced by age and gender, as well as fitness level.
Many experts recommend walking 10,000 steps per day, or for 30 minutes. Yet some experts recommend more if you are looking to stay healthy, but most agree that 5,000 steps is the minimum you should aim for. You may have noticed the popular trend of people using wearable tracking technology to check how many steps they are taking.
Aim for a brisk walk of 30 to 90 minutes most days of the week for weight loss. You can walk more on some days and less on others, but the total time for the week should be at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours). 1  You should walk fast enough that you are in the moderate-intensity exercise zone at 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate.
How Walking Speed Affects Mile Time. Is there a universal standard for a fast, moderate, or slow walking pace? Actually, yes. Fitness experts tend to use these general guidelines. Fast: 11 minutes per mile. Moderate: 15 minutes per mile. Easy: 20 minutes per mile
  • Generally speaking, walking at an easy 3 mph will take you 40 minutes to complete two miles. However, if you tend to fast walk (5 mph), then you can get it easily done within 24 minutes. For some motivation to help you get started walking two miles, feel free to check out this video here:
