My partner hurt her little toe about 5 weeks ago. We think she has broken it, so have it strapped up as was advised by our local minor injuries unit. She is a fitness fanatic and has a VLM place for 2014. She can still run on it, but it remains painful, as you would expect, but what she doesn't know is what, if any on going damage she will do if she continues to run on it, given that she will put up with the pain if it will still heal. The obvious advice would be to rest it, but, what we don't know are what are the consequences if she tries to run through it. Will it never heal? Will it just take longer to heal or could she incur permanent damage or even trigger other issues. Could you help please.
