What should I watch for when my child begins dancing en pointe?

  • Injury to toenails or ingrown toenails

  • Blisters, new areas of pressure (redness) or callus locations

  • Pain in the ankle (including ankle injury)

  • Pain in the toes (toe injury)

 

  • Change of foot shape – bunions, hammertoes, over extension
