Ballet dancers and the pain in the ball of the foot

Professional ballet dancers - how do they keep their feet moving pain free?  Well, the truth is at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic, we treat quite a few dancers, and it is their podiatrists that keep their feet moving!  A common complaint is pain in the ball of the foot, at the base of the big toe joint, called sesamoiditis.  It is the inflammation of the 2 floating bones, or sesamoids, that take beating when dancers land on the ball of the foot.  But you don't have to be a dancer to feel this type of pain.  If you or a family member may be feeling this type of pain, make an appointment with one of our doctors today.
