2. The history of "Charlie Horses"
3. A runner with strange shin bruises.
Hi, I'm a great follower of your blog - fascinating stuff! I was
wondering if I could ask you a quick question as nobody I've spoken
to has been able to help:
I've been getting bruises that appear on my shin during running.
They don't hurt, I'm just wary of ignoring what could be a warning
sign. Have you ever come across this before? (It's mainly the spot
where I had a tibial stress fracture last year, but I also get a
few other apparently spontaneous bruises on my lower legs.)
4. Is that a forefoot varus or are you just happy to see me ?
Functional vs Anatomic vs. Compensated forefoot varus foot
postures. A loose discussion.
5. A reader's pet peeve about shoe store "gait analysis".
6. Thoughts on pronation and the like.
7. Case study: First toe fusion and implications long and
had a patient today with an MTP fusion of his great toe after
adverse complications from a bunionectomy. Do you have any
recommendations for gait training when great toe dorsiflexion is no
longer an option? He is currently compensating by externally
rotating his foot and overpronating. I'm thinking through it
and I know he has to gain the motion elsewhere to help
normalize his gait as much as possible, so possibly
gaining ankle dorsiflexion and hip extension. Just
wondering if you have any tips to share or articles to point me to
for further ideas. Continuing my research now. I'm a
relatively new grad and this is my first patient I'm seeing with
this fusion. Many thanks
