 Abby Miller was made famous from controversial show “Dance Moms”. Miller is especially known for causing an emotional reaction with her words, whether it’s making her students cry or incurring the wrath of their demonic mothers.

As guest judge on Dancing with the Stars, the snaky dance teacher laced some poisonous words for contestant Meryl Davis. In a string of put-downs, Miller stated that Meryl had dirty shoes, performed badly and even claims her broken toe was feigned for sympathy.

 "I heard that she had a broken toe or something so I watched very closely and when they were safe, and they weren't in danger, she jumped up and down on her toes...and I thought that toe isn't hurting too bad!" Miller said. Miller later admitted to OK! Magazine that she wanted revenge.  

Broken toes are more painful than hurtful words. If you sustained a toe injury, see podiatrist Dr. Edward Lang of New Orleans Podiatry Associates. Dr. Lang can attend to your podiatric injuries.

What to Know About a Broken Toe

Although most people try to avoid foot trauma such as banging, stubbing, or dropping heavy objects on their feet, the unfortunate fact is that it is a common occurrence. Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture). Another type of trauma that can break a toe is repeated activity that places stress on the toe for prolonged periods of time.
 

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

·         throbbing pain

·         swelling

·         bruising on the skin and toenail

·         inability to move the toe with ease.

·         crooked or disfigured appearance

·          tingling or numbness in the toe

·         fever or chills throughout their body

·          open, bleeding wound present on the toe.

It is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated on pillows. Alleviate swelling by placing an ice pack on the broken toe for 15 minutes every two hours then taping the two toes together with medical tape.
