Thank you to Molly Hurford for the invitation to speak with her on the Consummate Athlete Podcast. 
We covered a wide variety of topics from foot symptoms on the bike to female bone stress risk factors and lots in between. 
There is no question that technologies have added real value to clinical practice in terms of imaging modalities, gait analysis hardware and plantar pressure systems. 
I have had access to various gait laboratories in my clinical career and continue to do so in my Research & Development role for Surgical Armoury where we are involved with a number of collaborative projects with different groups both within and outside of the Orthopaedic profession. 
I agreed to speak with Paul Welford, one of my Physiotherapy colleagues who was interviewing the multiple disciplines that work at Pure Sports Medicine (PSM). 
Paul was looking at the various skill sets that operate in the organisation and what areas were clinicians working in outside of PSM. 
Paul had a list of questions that he wanted to discuss for this article and these are on bold within the text, my responses are below the bold text. 
Whats the best running trainer for me? 
Running footwear is a multi billion pound industry and the choices available to the runner are mesmerising. The science behind the marketing campaigns can be hard to find but there are some features inherent to running footwear that need consideration when making your purchase of your shiny new trainers and this guide is aimed at making your final decision a little more specific to you. 
The debate around barefoot running this time around centred on a paper published in the Journal of Nature by Lieberman 2010 following an observational study on the variation in forces acting through the lower limb with differing foot strike patterns.
