I recently read Adharanand Finn's new book, Rise of the Ultrarunner, and he talked about Gary Ward and his Anatomy in Motion techniques and practices. I'd also seen the episode on Doctor in the House where Dr Rangan Chatterjee used similar techniques on a man with a back problem.

My feet are driving me crazy, what with their lumps and bumps and numbness, and I recently saw a physio who gave me strengthening exercises to do. There was no physical examination of my feet beyond a visual one, an approach which I understand is becoming common now, and I'm not saying that it's wrong (what do I know, after all?), but I can't say there's been much improvement, if any.

I'm wondering if anyone has been treated using the AiM methods, or has any inside knowledge? Appointment costs vary considerably between those who incorporate these methods, it seems, but none of them are cheap and I don't have money to throw away on a snake oil remedy (although this really doesn't sound like one).

If you're having foot problems then I should source a podiatrist who specialises in gait analysis runners, it worked for me.

Bump (because I found this whilst tagging)
- see also Helen Hall, some videos on vimeo. The movements she suggests are to open up joints that haven't been moving properly

- No idea whether or not this works, but following some of her advice does seem to help me run more often without getting sore

Got something to say?
