Our user asked: "Hi my daughter had serves diease.She is 11.She was competing dancing freestyle at competative level in bare feet.Shes awaiting for insoles to be made.She wants to dance again.I have some tape  and was told by orthotics she can dance if I tape her feet.Is there anything  else she can do to heel the process.shes had it a ready nearly 2 years she's 11.Thank you"

Ask a PT Response: "Has she seen a PT? Rest and addressing the inflammation would be the first step to allow the healing process to take place. A good stretching and strengthening program should also be incorporated based on the findings from the PT. Taping can be done when returning to dance but not recommended if she persists to have pain and inflammation. Return to dance too soon before all the issues have been addressed is ill advised. I hope this helps.

Our user replied: "Thanks for the advise.she has pain only when over using.Just wondered how long this will last.shes having physio already had 2 sessions. Any idea how long the inflammation will last.been going 2 years.shes stopped all actives 5 months now"

Ask a PT Response: "Hard to say as everyone is different. Results can expected to be seen usually after 4-6 weeks of therapy."

Our user replied: "That's hopful.or will I have to wait until sge stops growing."

Ask a PT Response: "If the PT can address all the issues ie. Flexibility, weakness, mechanics, joint mobility, etc her condition should hopefully be able to be under control. Compliance with a home exercise program along with any other instructions recommended by the therapist should be followed to minimize exacerbation of condition."
