Most widely known for her role as Paige Matthews on the TV show Charmed that aired from 2001 – 2006, Rose McGowen is an actress who recently experienced some foot discomfort. She recently tweeted, “Broke my toe today. My boyfriend dropped me.” This comes after McGowen was hospitalized earlier this year for a ruptured ear drum. Needless to say, she has had a rough go of it so far in 2013. The boyfriend she refers to is popular DJ, Davey Detail.
Broken toes are very common. They usually occur in the middle of night when someone gets up to go to the bathroom. They attempt to get to the bathroom in the dark in order to not wake up their significant other. This usually is ok on the way in, but once they have turned the lights off in the bathroom, their eyes are no longer adjusted to the dark. The bedpost has been the cause of many broken toes over the years.
Thankfully, most toe fractures are not displaced, or if they are, they can be reset into proper alignment with traction. Surgery may be needed only when the fracture cannot be reduced. Just keep an eye out for those sneaky bedposts and you should be fine. If not, we are here to take care of you.
