http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2011/06/01/131050832/a-mystery-why-can-t-we-walk-straight

Today we have a neuroscience piece on “turning”, in a matter of speaking. So why, when blindfolded, can’t we walk straight?

These “Turning” field studies appear in Chris McManus’ book, Right Hand, Left Hand, The Origins of Asymmetry in Brains, Bodies, Atoms and Cultures (Phoenix, 2002). 

NPR Story Produced by Jessica Goldstein, Maggie Starbard.

4. and another from the Blog:
Hi The Gait Guys, what can I do to regain medial tripod? I have a forefoot varus and when I am standing it compensates and my rearfoot everts and gets valgus. I have been having some pain lately and it is annoying me a lot. Please help. Thank you.

7. The Gait Guys are always talking about ankle rocker, dorsiflexion strength and the importance of the anterior compartment of the lower leg. Here is another study to add fuel to our fire.

Ankle dorsiflexor strength relates to the ability to restore balance during a backward support surface translation
