Re: Foot turns purple ?

: As I have not examined your niece, my advice is a guess. Based on the type of injury and continued pain, I certainly would consider an X-ray. If there is significant pain, immobilization is gennerally a good idea. I think that is why we have pain- so if we ever listened to our bodies, we might get better quicker!

: Have you considered another opinion?

Dr. Abrams: My niece has an appt. with Sports Medicine in our area. Thank you for your time and the suggestion!

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
