In today’s program Dr. Reminga, from Northern Foot Care Center, talks about the hazards of icy winter conditions and how to avoid slips and spills. We all know that winter weather can affect driving conditions, however winter storms and weather conditions can also impact our personal safety. Something as simple as walking to and from your car can result in injury. One study indicates that the most common injury of those who fall on icy surfaces is back injury followed by wrist fractures and hip fractures. Ankle fractures were also a common injury due to icy falls. The highest incidents of fractures was related to age, with older women topping the list. Interestingly, fractures and injuries also peaked on the 5th and 6th day after a storm.

So today, Dr. Reminga reviews some winter weather safety tips for staying safe while walking on slippery, icy surfaces. Such as…

  1. Pay attention to the shoes or boots you’re wearing as well as what’s inside supporting your feet.
  2. Consider the bottom of your shoe or boot when walking on ice.
  3. Think about what the conditions you may encounter BEFORE you make your next move.
  4. NEVER put your hands in your pockets while walking on slippery surfaces.
  5. Approach walkways and parking lots with caution.
  6. Keep a small bag of sand or cat litter with you so you can throw it on slippery surfaces before you take a step.
  7. In really bad conditions wear ice spikes on your boots to grip the ice underfoot.

These are just a few Winter weather safety tips that Dr. Reminga shares in today’s program to help keep you safe this Winter. Listen to find out more about this interesting subject.

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.
