We recently attended the Paleo f(x) Conference in Austin, Texas for the second year. Far from being just about paleo, this conference is more based on an ancestral health model and brings together some of the leading neurologists, cardiologists, MD’s, and researchers from across the globe to talk about everything from nutrition (paleo, primal, vegetarian, vegan etc) to sleep optimization to stress management to genomics to optimal movement patterns. And why would a pedorthic clinic be interested in this? We feel very strongly that a specialist’s role needs to include a holistic look at what’s causing injury/illness. This way, we can use our specialist tools along with a broader whole body view (and potential referral to allied health care professionals) which almost always will lead to better long term outcomes!
