Premium Foam Dancer's Pads relieve big toe joint pain caused by turf toe, sesamoiditis, hallux limitus, metatarsalgia and forefoot problems. Premium Foam Dancer's Pads off-load the forefoot and great toe joint. The cut-out area surrounds the great toe joint and re-distributes load onto the pad, relieving forefoot pain. Premium Foam Dancer's Pads get their name because they are often used by dancers to relieve forefoot pain. Adhesive-backed. Contains Latex. Right/left specific. 2/pkg (2 right or 2 left).
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 you want to place the pads in your shoes, however, you need to reverse them (flip them over), so you should purchase a package of Right pads to be placed in the shoe. Of course the opposite is true if you are having trouble with your Right big toe joint.
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 Dancers' Pads. And if you wish to place the pad in your shoe, then you would do the opposite and purchase a package of Left Dancers' Pads.
Measurements: Pads measure 1/4" thick, 3 1/2" across and 3" long.
