With an overall combined 45+ years of clinical / medical experience in addition to extensive teaching and lecturing experience heavily weighted in biomechanics, neurology, orthopedics, manual medicine, acupuncture, advanced gait and running knowledge,  Dr. Ivo Waerlop ( and Dr. Shawn Allen ( & are finally bringing what has long been needed to the information/web age, that being enough knowledge and experience to help clarify the truths and dispel the myths that are abundant on the internet and in seminar halls. We are proud to keep our views and opinions on various products truthful and unbiased for the sake of searching for the facts, uncovering the truth and dispelling myths put upon consumers.

This is one of our favorite things to do, podcast.  Every 2 weeks we gather some important information on breaking developments in neuroscience, research, and clinical practice and we sit down and talk for an hour. This podcast has grown faster than either of us expected. We have listeners in countries all over the world. Last time we checked we were in over 90 countries and in places we did not even think spoke, let alone understood, the english language. It is cool to have listeners in Russia, Tasmania, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Chille, Ireland, UAE, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Argentina, Australia, China and the list goes on. We will never get to many of those countries to lecture but it is exciting to know that the internet has brought our voices that far. All you need to do is "Google" us and you will find all the different places where our podcast has been uploaded.  Search "podcast the gait guys". You can always find us on iTunes and download us to your phone or laptop.  We recently started loading them up to our YOUTUBE Channel and SoundCloud. Our thousands of self-authored articles can always be found on our Facebook, Twitter and   

Enjoy !

9. From a Blog reader:
Hello the gait guys. I have over pronated rigid cavus along with hallux rigidus on my feet (also had one failed surgery for hallux rigidus on right foot). Having really hard time to be on my feet as well as find shoes and use orthotics. Due to the rigidity of my feet orthotics I''ve been given create pain I can't bear and mostly push medial side of my feet. Also without orthotics it is not much better - getting constant pain in my feet and knees. What would be your advise in my situation?Thanks
10. From a blog reader
Question: when my feet point straight my knees point outward from my body. I’ve heard it called external femoral torsion. Is this correct? Also is there any type of PT/stretching I can do to correct this? Would love to get things straightened out (no pun intended).
