In Today’s show, Dr. Reminga begins a series talking about the winter sport of skiing and the foot pain that can result. It’s that time of year again and no doubt, skiing enthusiasts are happy to see the snow. Overall, the number of competitive skiers has been increasing due to the fact that there are younger participants as well as veteran skiers that continue to participate in the sport. Few can argue that skiing is a fun sport despite the fact that it does have its risks. There are certain foot and ankle problems that arise more commonly in skiers and in this program, Dr. Reminga talks about the issues that can occur and how to avoid skiing injuries.

What can a skier do to avoid a ski season on the sidelines? Dr. Reminga talks about the foot in detail as it relates to skiing. The foot’s structure can be put to the test with all the twists and turns associated with this winter sport. Skiers with flat feet, for example, experience arch pain more commonly when skiing. Dr. Reminga explains why this is the case for those with fallen arches. A day on the slopes can end abruptly with stabbing arch pain for someone with a flat foot. This condition is referred to as “skier’s foot myalgia” or “plantar intrinsic stress syndrome”... more simply stated “arch muscle pain”. Dr. Reminga shares this and other interesting information for skiers in this episode of YOUR FEET YOUR HEALTH. Listen for his expert advice and helpful tips for in Part 1 of his 2-part series.
