Injury to the Foot or Leg

A muscle injury to the foot, calf or any area of the leg can cause toe cramps. Cramping is most common in sprains, but it may also happen after overextension or bruising the area.

Dropping something on the toes or striking the foot against an object can lead to cramping. Toe cramps may happen directly following the trauma. Cramping may also happen hours or even days after the trauma, especially at night.
