In today’s program Dr. Reminga, from Northern Foot Care Center, talks about the foot and ankle issues that relate to the sport of hockey. This is the season for hockey and whether it be minor play, league hockey, local High School hockey, or... MTU college hockey, both fans and players are ready to go toe-to-toe with the opponent. Hockey players have to balance graceful agility, effortless gliding, turning and pivoting on thin skate blades, as well as, getting jostled with aggressive body checks, crashing into fellow players, and sometimes, meeting the ice surface with full-on force. So, it's no surprise that this combination of refined physical activity and rough, aggressive encounters can OFTEN lead to foot and ankle injuries for hockey players. Skating in ice hockey is a complex motor skill.

Scientists have concluded that the MOST important skill in ice hockey is the SKATING. Professional coaches, general managers, and team scouts, consider skating ability as a significant factor when selecting a player for a team. The feet are SO important when it comes to skating. Maintaining balance on two feet while moving straight ahead, turning, and engaging in body and stick contact is important for players.

Good foot health and function are the foundation for sports performance, including hockey. Sports is part physical and part psychological. If a player is struggling to push past a plateau in their performance... their feet may be the missing link. Listen to today’s program to find out more about this interesting topic. Dr. Reminga is a board certified foot and ankle specialist with over 30 years of experience. If you have any type of foot or ankle problem, Dr. Reminga can help.

The holiday is synonymous with food, as well as being a time to reflect on the good in our lives. With the excessive consumption of food comes danger. This is due to the KIND of food being consumed. Fatty, rich foods, high in sugar & fat are the culprits behind some startling foot problems associated with obesity, diabetes, and gout which are all affected by the foods we eat.

In today’s program Dr. Reminga, from Northern Foot Care Center, talks about heel pain in children. Many adults experience heel pain however, heel pain isn’t a condition that’s often associated with young children. In children, there’s a heel pain condition known as SEVER’S DISEASE and is also referred to as Calcaneal Apophysitis. It isn’t really a “disease” but more of a condition often due to overuse. Dr. Sever first reported it in 1912 as an inflammation of the apophysis, causing discomfort to the heel, mild swelling, and difficulty walking in growing children. An “apophysis” is an area of growth cartilage found throughout a child’s body and serves as an attachment site for their muscles and tendons. When a child is diagnosed with Sever’s Disease, they have an irritation of this area of growth cartilage in the heel’s growth plate where the Achilles tendon attaches.

Dr Reminga says, “I often see cases of Sever’s Disease. In fact, I have patients where it has been misdiagnosed. I recently had a young patient who had been suffering with heel pain for years. It prevented her from normal activities with her friends and during sports. She often had to sit out as a result of this condition. The family lived in a different part of the country until recently moving to the area. After exhaustive attempts to properly diagnose the child, she brought her into our office for an evaluation. The mother said the she had been told that her daughter would “grow out” of the condition. After years of hoping that would happen, the mother and the young child became discouraged. Upon examination I could see that the young girl had Sever’s Disease. I assured the mother that the name sounds worse than the condition and that I was confident I could help her child. With proper treatment, this is not a debilitating condition and is treatable non-invasively so the young patient can return to a normal active childhood.”

If your child has heel pain, a call to our office at Northern Foot Care Center is recommended. Listen to today’s program to learn more about Sever’s Disease and what can be done to help this condition. Dr. Reminga is a board certified foot and ankle specialist with over 30 years of experience. If you have any type of foot or ankle problem, Dr. Reminga can help.
