Doctors who treat figure skating injuries now have a reference source which they can turn to for help in diagnosing and further preventing the same injury. Ice skaters worldwide have been struggling with recurrent injuries for decades. Unlike other sports, figure skating has no governing body to supervise the development of guidelines for skating equipment, i.e. a skater’s skates. After more than three decades of working with competitive figure skaters, John Harmata, aka Mr. Edge has documented the relationship between proper boot fit, blade mounting, sharpening, and the role each of them plays in causing injuries to skaters.

Dr. Robert Weil

In his new book Anatomy of a Figure Skating Injury, he addresses the problems involving foot mechanics and explains why so many skaters are still prone to injuries and how to reduce or avoid them altogether. Two staunch supporters of Harmata's research are contributing consultants Robert A. Weil, DPM, personal podiatrist to current Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek, and prominent physical therapist Gina Pongetti.
