Dancer & Ballet Foot Care
My Podiatrist specialise in the specific podiatric needs of ballerinas and dancers. We offer pointe assessments and set specific programs to achieve certain goals like gain entry to VCAS, scholarships and work on any injuries or weaknesses.
Arch Angel Products
Arch Angels is a specific product exclusive to My Podiatrist, as demonstrated by our latest dancer in the Photo Gallery below. The pointe and foot posture are magnificent for those dancers wanting to achieve excellence.
Arch Angels is a flexible orthotic insole that fits into pointe shoes and assists by strengthening and protecting the feet when in pointe. It helps the dancer gain the desired foot posture and arch.
