Orthotics for skating includes figure skates, hockey skate and speed skates. Achilles tendon problems and plantar fasciitis, or heel pain, ulcers, and bursitis, are common complaints among skaters. Bursitis is the inflammation of a bursa, which functions as a smooth, slippery surface at the points where muscles and tendons glide over bones. The most common is œmalleolar bursitis in which the bone that protrudes from the inside of the ankle becomes swollen and painful.
Custom foot orthotics and footbeds will help align the foot properly in skates and assist in reducing hot spots. Because many skating boots are narrow and high heeled the orthotics for skates need to be narrow and specific to the shape of the boot. Skate orthotics also will improve balance and power in the skating stroke by controlling the pronatory motion of the foot.

What Sets Foot Dynamics Orthotics by Mail Apart from Other Labs?
It’s simply our foot impression process. Other mail order companies use a foam “crush box” to capture the foot shape. This process, while used by some medical practioners, often captures a “compensated” or poorly aligned foot position. This is especially true if not done by a skilled technician. As a result, the orthotics may not correct your foot biomechanics properly.
Our unique A.C.T.™ pillow system is easy to use and insures an accurate foot model time after time. Foot Dynamics fabricates orthotics for a number of nationally respected sports medicine and physical therapy clinics. All of them use this same A.C.T.™ process to make the foot impressions. This process has proven itself over the past 16 years with thousands of successful patient results. (Click here to view “Impression Kit Instructions”)
“Yeah, we’re very happy. It seems counterintuitive that the most effective of the orthotics I’ve had came from the kit you sent. I’ve twice before had running orthotics prescribed at a sports medicine clinic and they helped somewhat but didn’t completely do the trick. And things happened like the layer on top separated from the plastic, or the bladder popped in the case of gel orthotics. Now I’m logging 50-mile weeks of running in addition to 100 miles of biking, swimming, and weights (getting ready for an Ironman®). I keep thinking surely the old Achilles tendonitis or runner’s knee that I had are going to make themselves known, but not a twinge in a year and a half. I refer quite a lot of people to you. I hope they’re buying.”
