Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you might be having fracture or dislocation of toe.
Now as 2 weeks passed, nothing can be done except physiotherapy.
At the time of injury if you gone for x-ray and if fracture or dislocation found, proper treatment might have been done.
Now there are all chances of having mal-united fracture for which nothing can be done.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get examined and follow his advice.
Ok and bye.
