Have deformity in big toe post surgery for fractured tibial bone. How to get normal foot?

I am a 21 year old male, I met with an accident when I was around 17 years and I completely fractured my left tibial bone. Upon surgery a titanium rod was inserted to support and realign my tibia and about a month later I could already put weight on my leg, 3 months later when the top screw was removed I could even play football with the rod still in my leg although I experienced slight difficulties, A year later when the rod was removed my leg returned to normal condition and I could do whatever I pleased, including play football, run, and go to the gym.
Everything seemed alright except for my great toe which had a deformity post surgery, I looked it up and It was called checkrein deformity.
this greatly affects my leg and I want it gone.
how do I get my foot back to normal?
will i ever get complete control of my foot again?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
Certain medical cases need complete clinical examination because most of the time, the thing which is normal, seems abnormal to the patient, and in such situation doctor can only convince the patient, here may be right, but this thing need clinical examination and observation, I would advise you to see the orthopedic doctor and discus it, have nice day.
