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 !

6. From a Blog reader:
I have a patient who is suffering MS. . . . 
7.  Bunions
 I am a fitness instructor, and teach mostly barefoot classes...Pilates, yoga, willPower & grace. One of my students came to me originally because she has had bunion surgery, and wanted to regain alignment and strength in her feet. She is doing well with her big toe, but due to compensations made for the bunion, she has this pronounced  protrusion of the lateral edge of the foot by her 5th toe and metatarsal.  It looks larger in person than it does in the photo and is painful for her.  What is the cause and are there specific exercises for her?
Thanks for any insight,

Effect of customized foot orthotics in addition to usual care for the management of chronic low back pain following work-related low back injury.

The findings showed that patients in this study with chronic, nonspecific low back pain following work-related low back injury had greater improvement in short-term outcomes with orthotics and UC than with UC alone.
