Return to Dance: Bloch Shoes

Displaying IMG_4368.JPG

I just saw a patient with a sesamoid and big toe joint problem. She had been increasing her tango lessons and social dancing in May when the pain developed. She is back dancing after the removable boot routine. She does not totally like it, but we are forcing her to begin dance again with these Bloch exercise shoes with arch support and dancer's padding to off weight the sore areas. It is allowing her to dance painlessly, and gently we will remove this shoe restriction. She actually has a similar one in pink!! Pretty cool! Unfortunately her MRI showed a lot of stuff going on in 8/16, so we are going to be more protective with this shoe until a new MRI in 2/17.
