9 mos. broken toe – massage?

I broke my big toe 9 months ago playing soccer. Xrays showed no fragments or irregularities. I’ve tried intermittent splinting, followed by physical activity, which eventually leads to more soreness & swelling. I still can’t flex it much. What is going on inside there? Is it ligaments that are sore? Can I try massaging the toe to loosen things up? Thanks

    You did not indicate which toe was broken or how it was treated and when it was x-rayed. How recent was the x-ray? Many times a fracture and the resulting damage do not show up immediately. I recommend you see a podiatrist for further evaluation.
