Barre classes have gotten fairly popular in recent years. In NYC, there’s Fly Barre, Physique 57, Pure Barre, Bar Method, Exhale Spa Barre, and Pop Physique to name a few. Barre is a great workout because, not only is it low-impact and fun, but it helps improve posture, flexibility, core power, and strength in every muscle group. Much like dance or yoga, some barre class participants report muscle spasms and cramps during their workouts. Some exercise has participants wondering, “Why does my foot cramp when working out?”

Dancing is a popular athletic activity in White Plains, New York. We are blessed with so many of the best NYC dance studios in our backyard — Arthur Murray Dance School, City Center Dance, and Steffi Nossen, to name a few. Dancing requires the utmost strength and a tremendous amount of dedication, but sometimes the long hours of practice and rigorous activity lead to injury. It’s good to have a foot and ankle specialist as your ally in these cases. We are fully equipped to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate any lower extremity injury with the latest technology and techniques. We treat the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms, and believe in the importance of patient education and injury prevention as part of the individualized care we deliver.
This time of year, it’s always a joy to watch Irish step dancing in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. However, many people have no idea the enormous load this style of dance places on the dancers’ bodies. “Irish step dance may be enjoyable and look more graceful than contact sports, but it still takes a tremendous toll on the body — particularly the soft tissues, bones, and joints of the feet and ankles,” explains Dr. Mariola Rivera, a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine here at The Center For Podiatric Care & Sports Medicine in NYC.

Twenty-seven-year-old Rumer Willis first captured the world’s eye as the oldest daughter of famous cinematic parents Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. She’s appeared in movies like Now and Then (1995), Strip Tease (1996), The Whole Nine Yards (2000) and Hostage (2005), but more recently she’s entertained audiences with a big win on “Dancing With The Stars” alongside dancer Valentin Chmerovskiy. With her much-anticipated Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in “Chicago” on the horizon, the last thing the young star needed was a stress fracture in her right foot!
“I am so grateful for having had Dr. Geldwert perform bunion surgery on both of my feet. I have complete confidence in him and continue to see him for other sports related injuries. I was cautious about having surgery for the first time, but his knowledge, patience, and skill made me completely comfortable in trusting him. And I couldn’t be any happier with the results!! When anything else feels wrong with my feet, I love that I now know to go immediately to him. He is my top choice for anyone searching for the best foot fixer/surgeon/sports doctor in NYC! Thank you, Dr. Geldwert!!!”
