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.

Hello there,

I stumbled upon your page while trying to figure out a problem of mine. I'm not a runner, but I have noticed that I consistently wear large holes into the insides of my pants on both legs near the ankle. In looking at other people's pants it doesn't seem to be a very common problem. I do happen to have very flat feet although I wear inserts for that, not sure if that is a factor. In your article you mentioned a few reasons something like this could be occurring then also went on to mention the importance of diagnosing the cause so that the proper remedy could be prescribed, so my question is who do I need to see to get something like this diagnosed? I don't have the means to figure it out for myself but something is clearly wrong so I would like to get it sorted.

Thank You.
