  1. Hi Dr.Blake,

    My name is Leevi Kinnunen, I am a 19-year old junior ice hockey player from Finland. I have signed a tender offer with a Tier 2 team in New York. I'm extremely ambitious and determined, and was thrilled when I found your blog. I originally found you when I was reading about foot function in elite sports. I only lately found how crucial it is to everything we do, and took immediate action upon it. I saw your name mentioned in an older magazine issue "Remarkable Feets" by Peter Weiss in 1991.

    I'm very interested in your work, and 100% willing to listen to anything you have to say. I had an unsual injury to which no one could provide me an answer to (why it happened?).
    I had a stress fracture in my 2nd and 3rd metatarsal bones in my left leg. (9-10 weeks ago) After this the pain subsided OK, but now the right leg has been a pit painful during jumps and sprints. (started ABOUT 4,5 weeks ago)The "treatment" given to me was just to avoid running, jumping, ice trainign etc.

    I would be more than ready to provide you any value I can if you could open this topic up to me a bit more. I am working on my foot function and strengthening my arches also, but the cause for this injury is my number one priority now.
