    Selected Content (content is constantly evolving and being added to):
    - Short or long term use of foot orthotics?
    - Deconstruction all the social media crap on foot orthotics and running form
    - Why do overuse injuries occur?
    - Lower the force or increase the ability of the tissue to take the force?
    - How to increase the ability of tissues to take the force, so maybe orthotics aren't needed.
    - How to spot cherry picking, confirmations bias and the usual trope of argumentative fallacies in foot orthotic debates
    - Toning Shoes
    - Minimalism vs Maximalism
    - What?s more important: Proximal or distal control of the lower limb? (ie is it the foot or is it the hip?)
    - Tabulation of foot orthotic design features for prescription variables
    - When to run which way; deciding which running ?form? is better for which individual
    - Making clinical decisions in the context of all the online and media driven rhetoric and propaganda about foot biomechanics, orthotics and injury
    - Running shoes, foot orthotics and their effect on muscle strength (myths vs the science)
    - Advising runners and facilitating the transition to different running forms
