* Today’s show notes:


Human quadrupedalism is not an epiphenomenon caused by neurodevelopmental malformation and ataxia.  

” a re-emergence of the ancestral diagonal QL, and (3) it may spontaneously emerge in humans with entirely normal brains, by taking advantage of neural networks such as central pattern generators that have been preserved for about 400 million years.”

abnewman10 asked you:

Both my big toes planterflex. My right toe has Morton’s toe and elevates when standing in neutral. My left toe elevates and twists inward when standing in neutral – I think I have Rothbarts toe. I have tried two orthotics that drop my big toes and it caused a lot of pain up through my pelvis and back. What are the treatments for Morton’s toe and Rothbart’s toe for the big toe joint – would you use a Morton’s toe joint pad and/or full Morton’s extension? Thank you, Andrea
