[i]I read the summer vacation post. I don't know how I missed that, but at least I know why that forum is closed.[/i]
Hey I wanted to post a thread in the Ask the Boot Guys forum but can't. I read the rules for posting and it said any member is allowed to. I posted my question in the snowboarding forum, but I'm not sure if I'll get the answer I need. I don't want to spam, but I'm going to ask my question here because
A: I think skiiers have much more experience with properly aligning a person's lower body
B: I think skiiers probably have much more experience having to deal with perfectly fitting boots.
So here is my question, thanks for the patience for a new member. :)
I've sprained my MCL twice while snowboarding. I've seen a podiatrist and he said it was due to overpronation of the foot, causing my knees to knock, bad alignment in my hips and spine and ultimately causing the MCL to take way too much of the stress of snowboarding than it should. He said I need to see a very experienced ski/snowboard boot fitter to have this issue resolved (my insurance won't cover anything beyond the exam, so all he can do is tell me what's wrong but can't actually do a lot to help, go figure).
Anyway, I know I need some orthotics that are canted, but I don't know where to get any. I'm guessing I'll need some custom work to fit some boots properly. Can anyone recommend a top notch bootfitter in the Sacramento or Lake Tahoe area?
At least we don't generally use hardboots on our boards!
