Correcting for Pigeon-Toed Stance?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My right foot turns in slightly (from childhood - not injury related). I have also sprained this ankle severely on at least 3 occasions due to rollovers caused, in part, by this turn-in (all occurred running). I have less flexibility/mobility in the ankle as a result. This was never an issue (at least not one that I noticed), until last year when I began skiing a mid-fat. In bumps in particular when my stance is narrower I have noticed my right tip turned more inward than I'm happy with. I suspect now that it may also be affecting my ability to flatten that ski.

Is this something that can be corrected/accommodated through equipment adjustments? Is it even a boot issue? When I was a kid I wore corrective shoes for several years. I remember the soles being built up on one side. The shoes resolved the issue in my left foot, but the fix never completely "took" in the right, though it is much less severe.

is this happening because

 

1)   you need more arch suport?

2)  you need a offset mount on that side?

3) you need a canted shim on that side?

4) you need a stiffer (or softer) boot on that side?

 

lots of solutions, but we need to know the problem.    Perhaps someone can help you on snow with the problem (instuctor, physio, etc) , and then we can find a solution to that?
