Turf Toe is a painful condition that affects the big toe joint. It’s caused by hyperextension of the big toe which stretches the ligament of the joint leading to pain and inflammation. It is a common injury in sprinting and jumping sports but can occur from a trip or a slip. We have written detailed articles on Turf Toe symptoms & treatment as well as a piece on playing sports with Turf Toe. If reducing activity levels and wearing cushioned footwear alongside anti-inflammatories and icing doesn’t reduce your pain levels then it is worth considering buying a Turf Toe Brace
In this article, our aim is to provide you with information about various Turf Toe Braces that we recommend to our patients.

The best type of Turf Toe Brace should have an element of compression to reduce swelling and a fixed plate or boot underneath to prevent hyperextension of the big toe joint.
This is an effective brace for mild to moderate symptoms of Turf Toe. It is a simply slip-on sock that is elasticated to prevent it from slipping off.
The bar under the big toe limits the amount of extension in the big toe which is the key aggravator of Turf Toe.
The compression element of the sock reduces swelling in acute episodes of Turf Toe.Buy Online
