Dancer's Pads - Premium Felt are adhesive-backed metatarsal support cushions that offer relief from forefoot pain by off-loading weight from the ball of the foot and the great toe joint. The cut-out area surrounds the great toe joint and re-distributes weight onto the pad, relieving forefoot pain caused by many conditions of the feet. These pads get their name from their skived (rounded) edges and are often used by dancers to relieve forefoot pain. Right/left specific. By Myfootshop.com. 4/pkg.
Choosing right or left: Choosing the correct dancer's pad for your specific needs can sometimes be tricky. Here are some examples of how to choose the correct pad:
- If you are having trouble with your left big toe joint and want to wear the Dancers' Pad on your skin, then you should buy a package of left-specific dancer's pads. If you would rather place the pad in your left shoe to treat a left foot problem, you'll need to reverse them, so you should purchase a package of right-specific pads.
- If you wish to off-load a problem beneath the little toe joint, and would like to apply the dancer's pad to the skin, then you would purchase the opposite side that you would need if you were treating your big toe. If you are treating your left 5th toe and want to place the pad on the bottom of your foot, you should purchase a package of right-specific Dancer's Pads. If you want to treat a callus beneath the 5th toe and you wish to place the pad in your shoe, then you would do the opposite and purchase a package of left-specific Dancer's Pads.
