I have the exact same injury on both my left and right big toes from playing football (soccer), I have tried resting them for up to 3 weeks and when it seems to be gone I kick a football again and it immediately returns.... I can walk without pain but bending the toes back (the un-natural way) causes a sharp aching pain. I looked up Turf Toe but it seems that is a more technical injury that causes pain to toes that move in any direction, where as mine tends to be when bending them backwards.
Rest, massaging, ice, heat or otherwise don't seem to work. Any help or advice would be awesome.
