Step into the world of the Crackin' Backs Podcast, where we untie the laces of conventional wisdom and walk barefoot through the latest in health and wellness. In this episode, we invite Dr. Paul Langer, a renowned sports medicine podiatrist with a day filled with foot and ankle puzzles, to share his expert insights on a topic that's sprinting into the spotlight: barefoot running. Is it a path to peak physical health or a shortcut to injury? Dr. Langer weighs in on the benefits and risks, helping listeners decide if it's the right fit for their feet.

But we don't stop there. As interest in foot health and strength gains traction, Dr. Langer shares his top exercises for building a solid foundation, from the ground up. Why do we rehab hands with vigor yet often neglect our feet after injury? We explore this imbalance, proposing a more natural approach to foot recovery and the intriguing question of internal versus external arch support.

In a world flooded with footwear options, from minimalist sandals to cushioned fortresses, how does one navigate the shoe aisle? Dr. Langer offers guiding principles to select the perfect pair, illuminating the primary role shoes play in our health and societal performance. Has our understanding evolved from mere protection to enhancing performance?

Tackling another contentious issue, Dr. Langer shares his professional stance on pre-taping the foot and ankle in sports. Is this age-old practice preventative medicine or potentially harmful?

Join us on the Crackin' Backs Podcast for an enlightening journey through the intricacies of foot health, shoe science, and the bare truths behind barefoot running. Whether you're a seasoned marathoner, a weekend warrior, or simply curious about healthier living, this episode promises insights that will change the way you think about your feet and their journey through life. Tune in and step up your health game!
