In today’s program Dr. Reming talks about foot and ankle problems that relate to the sport of Hockey. It’s Hockey Season for those who love to play and watch this exciting, fast-paced game. Whether it be minor play, league hockey, local High School hockey, or Michigan Tech college hockey, fans and players are ready to to toe-to-toe with the opponent. Hockey players have a difficult job. They have to balance graceful agility along with effortless skating such as, gliding, turning and pivoting all while on thin skate blades. Getting jostled with aggressive body checks, crashing into fellow players, and sometimes meeting the ice surface with full-on force can be challenging and can also result in injury. So, it’s no surprise that this combination of refined physical activity and aggressive encounters can often lead to foot and ankle injuries for hockey players.

Dr. Reminga states, “Good foot health and function are the foundation of everything else in sports performance, including hockey. Sports is part physical and part psychological. If a player is struggling to push past a plateau in performance, their feet may be the missing piece of the puzzle.” An NHL study shows that foot and ankle dysfunction can significantly alter a skater’s function and limit performance. In today’s program, Dr. Reminga talks about his approach in treating hockey players in his office at Northern Foot Care Center. Listen and find out more about the important role the feet play in the sport of Hockey.
