I was listening to your podcast and you said Ice Bug was out of business. I sell them in my store in Fairbanks Alaska where we have snow and ice on the ground for 6-7 months a year. The US distributor is Ice Bug USA. I also carry a the Salomon Snow Cross studded shoe.

My 11 year old son walks with a very noticeable external tibial torsion. We just recently noticed this and I came upon your site while trying to research it. I also read that many time it has to do with a problem with the patella. Both my husband and daughter have had patella problems but do not have the duck walk like my son. I did ask a a pediatric sports medicine specialist about the problem and he said some kids just walk that way. Where should I bring my son for help with this?

About a year ago there was an article posted called: "A case of the non-resolving ankle sprain. Things to think about when the ankle and foot just do not fully come around after a sprain". I am 15 weeks into an identical problem and I was wondering if there was any way you guys could follow up with "MR" to see if he was ever able to resolve his issue. It is such a unique and frustrating case (being able to walk but not run) and I haven't found any other instance of it until now. Thank you.
