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 !

a. I was listening to pod 49, great job. I am sending a personal message to point out an error regarding body composition. Under water weighing is considered the 2 compartment "Gold Standard" however caliper testing is used more due to cost and ability to be used in the field. Loved the learning stuff I sent some stuff similar to what you were talking about to the school administration but it went no where.

Thanks guys,

Blog reader:
Not very infrequently the foot tripod has been discussed. Especially the importance of the medial tripod (MT) has been of great benefit to me. Some kind of a peroneus paralysis was probably the cause of weak MT of the right foot. With a weak anterior muscle group or compartment. But what about the lateral tripod, ie the 5th distal end of the fifth metatarsal. Which muscles are most responsible for the foot stability here and what kind of exercises might be of therapeutic value? Thank you.

Dear Gait Guys,
I've had a problem for a while where my lower left leg whips across the midline of my body at the start of the swing phase. This happens immediately after my left foot leaves the ground and before my right foot makes contact. My left knee seems to be angled outward, and I think this is due to some sort of external rotation of the hip or femur during the the early part of my swing phase. I attached a picture to illustrate this problem in my gait. I recently came across a blog post you guys wrote ( and under the possibilities as to why there isn't enough internal rotation, the second option describes exactly what happens when I run. So my question is, what can be done to correct this improper gait pattern? Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.
