When I went searching for “Barefoot” answers, I wanted information from those who had walked the walk. What use was a journal article preaching the pro’s or con’s of going barefoot, if the author hadn’t even given it a whirl? So, as always I set me sights high. What I wanted was someone who had not only tried barefoot training, but had done so under a variety of different circumstances and levels of intensity. Looking back, it sounds like a lot to ask, but hey, shoot for the stars right? Well, as fate would have it, I got all that AND more, all rolled into one. It is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to Dr. Zachary O’Brien, Chiropractor and AFL Footballer for the Brisbane Lions football club. Today he gives his verdict on going Barefoot.
Recently I posted about my experiences with a chiropractic care, you can read about this here. I was overwhelmed by the response and coincidently flooded with a number of questions from readers around the country. Given that I am no expert in this field, Dr. David Cahill (a chiropractor based in Melbourne) has kindly agreed to answer these for us! If you are still sitting on the fence re: chiropractic care, I strongly suggest you take a look.
