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.

Hi guys,

I'm hoping you can help.

I have a severely arthritic 2 MTPJ on my left foot.

It seems to trigger extreme hip flexor tightness which has twisted my whole body, right up to my neck and jaw.

I can't seem to get any definitive answers as to how to turn off this protective hip flexor tightness. I'm concerned if it goes on much longer I'm going to develop bone spurs throughout my body. This would destroy my life.

Is there any surgery you recommend?

Or any type of Rocker soled shoe? I've tried MBT's but I think the forefoot is stiff enough and my Hipflexor hasn't calmed down properly.

Thank you so much if you decide to answer this

How does subtalar supination/pronation affect plane deviations farther up the chain, specifically at the pelvis? I was going over some notes and found something saying that increased pronation leads to increased frontal plane motion at the pelvis during gait, and increased sup leads to increased transverse plane motion. However, in this video I was watching, the clinician states that increased sup will lead to increased frontal plane motion. Is this not a contradiction? Can both be true? Thanks
