flat feet = not good!! HELP!!!

I don't know about the type of pointe shoes to suggest, but my daughter also has very low arches, and so has a tendency to develop tendonitis from pointe work. We have an excellent chiropractor who stresses the importance of supporting feet with arch supports when not dancing. This somehow counteracts that stress.  (Aug 9, 2008 | post #43)

You are SO YOUNG. Go for it and enjoy it. Your desire and love of it are more important than anything else!  (Aug 9, 2008 | post #290)
