Turf toe and related injuries to the first metatarsophalangeal joint are common injuries that occur in several sports. Although often a clinical diagnosis, advanced imaging can help grade severity of sprain and evaluate for associated or unsuspected injuries. Without proper rest and conservative management, a treatable injury can have chronic sequelae and morbidity. Operative management is uncommon, but successful in returning high-level competitive athletes to their sports.
