At the recent Australian Podiatry Conference on the gold Coast Dr Christopher Nester presented a series of lectures. Thank You.
I was expecting/ to have some outline or summary available but have not been able to find them.
Basically Dr Nester brought forward research that refuted a number of the pillars of the "Root" theory of biomechanics (or rather the way Root et al have been interpreted for the theories that they put forward).
I anm very keen to have listed the "Root" theories that have been shown to fail current reasearch.
I would have sent this request personally to Dr Nester but haven't worked out how to do that. Seeing also that there were about 600 pods on the Gold Coast perhaps soneone else did better than me and took good notes to pass on.
Thanks for any help.
