Spread Your Toes EP17

STOP WEARING THOSE NARROW TOE BOX SHOES AND SPREAD YOUR TOES!

 

 Dr. Ray McClanahan from Northwest Foot & Ankle joins us on the show to explain why improper foot position might be causing all those nagging injuries we suffer from as runners.

 

Dr. Ray explains why he embraced a natural foot care philosophy and re-tooled his entire practice around that philosophy.

 

We dig deep into why you should stop wearing “traditional” running shoes and transition into a zero drop, wide toe box shoe.

 

Dr. McClanahan is the inventor of Correct Toes help the foot rehabilitate from the negative effects of conventionally shaped footwear. The device, made of soft, flexible silicone, encourages the toes back into their natural alignment found at birth. With progressive and consistent use while active and weight bearing, toes align and feet strengthen, restoring your foot’s original position and function.
