A Bad Case of Turf Toe

A couple weeks ago Harrison was playing football with some of his uncles and cousins and the following morning his foot began to hurt. I didn't think too much of it until he started limping around. He was in so much pain he couldn't even get his shoe on. He was so stressed about what he was going to do at school because he knew that he wasn't going to be able to wear a shoe and walk around without it hurting. In a kidding way I suggested that he just wear one shoe. I didn't think he would really do it but to my surprise he walked out the door with only one shoe on. I knew at that point that he must really be hurting because Harrison is easily embarrassed and doesn't like to draw attention to himself.

I called and made him a doctors appointment and we found out that he has "turf toe." It is the funniest name ever but it's actually a real thing and it's very painful, it can be more painful than a broken foot. It happens quite a bit to NFL players when they play on artificial turf. It's basically when your toe gets bent the wrong way and can be made worse when you don't wear shoes that have a good arch in them, which is exactly what Harrison was wearing at the time.

The doctor gave him a special shoe that made it so Harrison couldn't bend his toe. It was definitely an ugly shoe but Harrison was willing to wear it if it meant that he wouldn't be in so much pain. So the next day Harrison wore the shoe to school and it started to feel better after a couple days. Once his toe started to feel better he quickly reverted back to wearing his normal shoes but he stayed away from any football games for the next week.
