I’ve had a few very interesting conversations with members of the medical community as of late. It seems there’s a growing movement, initiated by younger researchers and practitioners, to thoroughly investigate the ideas of barefoot and minimalism.
This isn’t a group of renegade hippy doctors rejecting the ‘Man; it’s a group of professionals that are questioning the assumptions about topics like running gait and the need for medical interventions. There seems to be a growing rift between the “old guard” and “new guard.”
Here’s an interesting debate that more or less encapsulates the nature of the debate: Clickity Click Here
My perspective is obviously biased; most of the medical professionals I encounter are the driving force behind the paradigm shift. The questions:
- What do the rest of you observe?
- For those readers involved in the medical community,do you see the same thing?
- What about your doctors?
- Is their stance changing? Why?
