In today's program Dr. Reminga 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... Michigan Tech 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.

Good foot health and function are the foundation for 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 their performance... their feet may be the missing link. An NHL study shows that foot and ankle dysfunction can significantly alter a skater's function and limit performance. Dr. Reminga talks about his approach in treating hockey players in today's program. Find out more about the important role the feet play in the sport of hockey.
