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 !

Current frameworks on running-related injury
Current frameworks on running-related injury (RRI) aetiology emphasize the relation between exposure to training load, internal tissue loads, and tissue capacity; with tissue load exceeding its capacity being the key biological mechanism in the development of RRI. Despite this,  . . . .

The neuroinvasive potential of SARS‐CoV2 may play a rolein the respiratory failure of COVID‐19 patients

"The entry ofSARS‐CoV into human host cells is mediated mainly by a cellularreceptor angiotensin‐converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), which is ex-pressed in human airway epithelia, lung parenchyma, vascular endothelia, kidney cells, and small intestine cells."
"Additionally, some patients withCOVID‐19 also showed neurologic signs, such as headache, nausea, and vomiting. Increasing evidence shows that coronaviruses are not always confined to the respiratory tract and that they may also invade the central nervous system inducing neurological diseases. The infection of SARS‐CoV has been reported in the brains from both patients and experimental animals, where the brainstem was heavily infected. (Experimental studies using transgenic mice revealed that either SARS‐CoV34or MERS‐COV,13when given in-tranasally, could enter the brain,possibly via the olfactory nerves,and thereafter rapidly spread to some specific brain areas including  thalamus and brainstem)
Furthermore, some coronaviruses have been demonstrated able to spread via a synapse‐connected route to the medullary cardiorespiratory center from the mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors in the lung and lower respiratory airways.
*increasing evidenceshows that CoVs may first invade peripheral nerve terminals, and then gain access to the CNS via a synapse‐connected route"
