Welcome to Episode 4 of the Movement Logic podcast! In this episode, Sarah is joined by her former professor from PT school, Dr. Ben Cornell, to discuss all things feet related from balance to running, and why you might want to start high-fiving the trees when you’re out for a run or a walk!
- Why shoes and bedcovers cause problems for not only feet but the rest of the body
- Why plantar fasciitis can be so challenging to treat and heal from
- How much can we change the bony structure of the foot – and does it matter if we can’t?
- Why a “window of neutral” is a better goal than a singular “neutral” position
- Connecting increased foot rigidity to fall risk for older people
- Why pronation isn’t a dirty word in running and there’s no single way for people to run
- The importance of giving your students self-efficacy and understanding their motivation
