Dance Podiatry: Caring for Dancers' Feet

Dance is a beautiful and expressive art form that requires immense skill, strength, and dedication. Dancers spend countless hours perfecting their technique and pushing their bodies to the limit. However, this intense physical activity can take a toll on their feet, which are the foundation of their art. That's where Dance Podiatry comes in.

One of the most common issues that dancers face is foot and ankle injuries. The repetitive movements and high-impact nature of dance can lead to sprains, strains, stress fractures, and other injuries. Our Dance Podiatry specialists are well-versed in diagnosing and treating these conditions, using the latest techniques and technologies to ensure optimal recovery.

These can include bunions, corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, and blisters. Our surgeons have extensive experience in managing these conditions, providing relief and preventing them from interfering with your dance practice. We offer a range of conservative treatments, such as orthotics, padding, and footwear modifications, as well as surgical options when necessary.
