Tampa Podiatrist discusses Derrick Rose’s Turf Toe

The famous Chicago Bulls player Derrick Rose is sitting out another game because of Turf Toe!    Dr. Katz notes that this injury is fairly common in athletes.  In most cases, the athlete can return without problems with a little rest and treatment.  However, Derrick Rose seems to have the problem again and he says that this injury is worse than his second season injury.

Katz notes that in many cases after injury to the toe, the toenail can become curved and result in an ingrown toenail.  In those cases, a permanent correction of the nail may be the solution.

Dr. Katz is located in Tampa Florida.
