Hi Guys: Not quite sure how I came across your podcasts but really enjoying them, even if I’m only slowly starting to understanding them. I was catching up on some old ones during my marathon training and the ones on evolution reminded me of some of my musing on the arch in the foot (well I guess correctly that should be the medial longitudinal arch). I though you might be able to give me the answers or point me in the right direction
I am currently a third year podiatry student needing some biomechanics and orthotic-making training. I enjoy your youtube videos but was wondering if you offer or could recommend a dvd that I could purchase to further my education. The way the information is presented it in class is not as good as the way you do it! I am also interested in the biomechanics of shoes… I am having trouble finding information about how walking in a cushioned/plantarflexed sneaker effects function (Does is help us get to forefoot running or hinder us?). I enjoyed your blog on different curved lasts as well. How would I be able to apply the way the shoe is lasted to a patient? For example, if the patient is rigid and I want them to be wearing a shoe that is lasted like a slipper how do I guide them into buying a shoe constructed as such? Do I just tell them to go for a shoe made with a straight toe box? Is there such a thing as a toe box curved laterally?
One last question- do you recommend a medial FF post for a patient that has a mobile RF varus that causes a FF supinatus? I was told a post like this would limit PF of the first ray and DF of the hallux which would limit toe off and cause other problems.
Thank you. I appreciate any advice you may have. I am out of my element with biomechanics and really want to improve at it.
