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 !

Neuroscience piece:

2- First ever head transplants are possible and not far off.

3- 3D printed casts for shoe fit. The new future ?

4- FB reader sent us a message:
-Hi Gait Guys,

I have anterior pelvic tilt and overpronation of the right foot.

at gait, LEFT foot does toe off properly and straight.
However, RIGHT foot moves towards my center at toe off. It just sort of caves in & moves in as well.

I managed to really reduce that(i think) from massages and strengthening glutes etc but I would just like to know what causes that so I know what to target.

Once again, congratulations on your work. Not only has it not been done before over the whole internet it is excellent.

5- Another FB reader asks question about heel spurs, plantar fascitis, ankle biomechanics
6- Questions from a field doc:
Hey guys,
I have a couple questions for you that you could possibly use or you could simply answer them via email. 
1)  Ivo, in one of your videos on muscle function you talk about muscle inhibition.  I always thought the CNS simply chooses not to recruit all of the motor units in a muscle or chain of muscles to protect from injury, compensate, etc.  You mentioned in your video the CNS somehow recognizes the spindles in these motor units are already "turned on" so they will not activate.  I'm not sure I have this correct but I was hoping you could elaborate on this confusing but interesting neurological phenomenon.
7- Patient case yesterday:
Runner comes in and says "i keep landing on the outside of my left foot when i run, it is there a little when i walk, but more prominent when i run. Everywhere i read the armchair experts are saying to just let foot strike happen naturally.  Do i leave this alone ? Oh, and my left hip is always tight."
