I believe it's spelled "metatarsophalangeal." --Rjfleming84 04:36, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

"Death Toe"?[edit]

"Because of the benign nick-name of the injury, and its effect on such a small part of the body, it is incorrectly assumed to be an insignificant injury, and many fans poke fun of football players who miss time because of it. Because of this, there is a growing movement in the medical community to rename the injury "death toe".[citation needed]"

This seems HIGHLY improbable. If there is no citation on this, it should be removed from the article speedily. (talk) 01:49, 23 September 2009 (UTC)


"Use of the toes is not possible during the healing process."

Does that mean that the toes are immobile or that it is unwise to use the toe if one wants to heal? Since it talks of taping and bracing, I would suspect not. Either way, that line should be cleared up. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 06:29, 11 March 2007 (UTC).

I have had this condition and I believe that the writer's point is that the toe is so painful when placed under stress that the use of it is impossible. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:21, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
