Dancer's Pads - Premium Felt, off-load the ball of foot and the great toe joint. The cut-out area surrounds the great toe joint and re-distributes load onto the pad relieving forefoot pain. These pads get their name because of their skived or rounded edges and often are used by dancers to relieve forefoot pain. Adhesive-backed. 2/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' Pads on your skin, then you should buy a package of Left dancer's pads. If instead you want to place the pads in your left shoe to treat a left foot problem, you need to reverse them, so you should purchase a package of Right pads.
- If you wish to off-load a problem beneath the little toe joint, and you wish 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 Dancer's Pads. And 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 Dancer's Pads.
