pointe shoes Posted August 20, 2011 Report Share Posted August 20, 2011 I took my dd to be fitted for new pointes yesterday and the fitter was puzzling over the fact that one foot had a lovely arch and fully on the platform and the other was not. I mentioned to the fitter that dd had fallen and twisted her ankle some time ago and her teacher has mentioned that sometimes she has been favouring the good foot. The fitter felt around her ankle and the back of her leg and suggested I take dd to see a psyio. She said she could feel a lot of tension and tightness in the leg/ankle and she felt that was stopping dd getting over properly. Dd has never seen a psyio before nether have I and I suspect we cannot afford one at this time. Can anyone offer us some advice? Is a psyio the way to go? I am feeling very guilty that we did not take the sprain more seriously at the time. Thanks Quote Link to comment
