Advice for Those in Ballet

Do you or someone you know spend your free time in dance activities such as ballet? Hi, this is Doctor Gabriel Rodriguez, a podiatrist in Sioux Falls, and today, I want to speak to those of you about special precautions that should be taken with your feet.

When you wear ballet shoes, your feet are constricted to a very small space, while you are constantly putting them under pressure. Subsequently, you can develop blisters and calluses quite easily. Even more seriously, conditions such as sesamoids, plantar fasciitis, bunions, or hammertoes can also emerge.

Seeing a podiatrist should be a regular practice for those who are in ballet in order to avoid problems. I encourage you to stop by my office here in Sioux Falls, so that we can help. Click here to read my full report on bunions and to make an appointment:
