There are three great ways to be at the top of your game this hockey season: practice, practice and more practice! All that time laced up in hockey skates, however, can be agonizing for your feet, lower legs, knees and back. Why not give yourself an added advantage this season? Consider a set of custom skate orthotics from Tread Well. Learn more about how custom orthotics designed specifically for your hockey skates can help you be more explosive and save your stamina so you can finish your shift strong.
A Chiropodist at Tread Well will carefully analyze your biomechanics and foot type, discuss your symptoms, and determine how custom orthotics may benefit you. The right support under foot can do wonders to relive stress and fatigue throughout the body.
Custom hockey orthotics can help minimize injury on the ice by ensuring that your feet and legs are aligned correctly and working to move you efficiently. Properly designed custom orthotics can reduce the strain athletes at all levels put their legs. The orthotic redistributes your weight evenly throughout your stride, improving your comfort and stability. They may also help avoid blisters and cramping during and after a game.
Modern hockey skates are a wonder of design and technology. Unfortunately they do not address many common foot and biomechanical conditions. Custom devices are made of graphite composite from a 3D scan or plaster mold of your feet. These scans are then sent to one of the top labs in North America where your one-of-a-kind orthotics are constructed just for you. Our chiropodist takes the time to help you install your custom orthotics and ensure a proper fit.
