How to treat a broken toe?

This one recently (two weeks past) broke his left little toe during aikido class.

This ones doctor was not available the day after this occurred so this one simply pulled the toe as straight as possible, taped it in that position and then taped that toe to the one next to it.

Is there anything else that might be done so that it might heal properly?

The swelling has gone done and the discoloration has receded. There is very little pain due to other more severe injuries.

Thanks to all who answer.

    Try not to move your broken toe as much as possible, lean to one side of your body so the pressure will be on the other toes, if you can't handle the pain go see your doctor.
