Ballet & Pre-pointe assessments
The nature of ballet and dancing places a lot of stress and pressure on the feet and legs which makes them prone to injury.
Some of the most common ballet and dance injuries can be managed easily with the right diagnosis and treatment plan.
Before beginning on pointe in ballet it is important to have your feet medically cleared by a qualified professional to ensure that your feet are physically prepared for the demands of pointe work. Testing the range of motion of the joints and strength and flexibility of the muscles of the feet and legs is part of a pointe assessment. At Sole Podiatry we can conduct a comprehensive pointe assessment and prescribe appropriate exercises to prepare your feet for pointe.
