Podiatry and ice hockey

Discussion in 'Biomechanics, Sports and Foot orthoses' started by mike weber, Aug 4, 2009.

    Being Australian and not having been brought up playing pond hockey ive not really had much time in skates.

    Ive treated elite cross country skiers and worked in the ski industry for a couple of years fitting boots and making changes blow out etc.

    Im about to review an elite ice hockey player and wondering if there is anything specific that I should consider.

    I have some friends that played at the elite level (retired)and expect to find reduced triceps surea dosiflexion maybe even toe walking with a FF Equinus , 1st ray and 1st MTP disfucntion, tight muscle of the whole leg and overdeveloped Quads going by these old broken ice hockey players.

    So checking if there is anything I should look into that is different from the other winter sports.

    thanks for your help

  4. thanks guys.

    Craig I never though about the blade and it´s relation to the stj axis also being a fixed axis the reationship between the fixed and moving axis. intersting......

    I was more thinking from above the skate as there is a lot of internal and external weight transfer and with the position of the knee over the foot just the same a sking.
