“My job is to encourage people to think about their feet and educate them how feet are supposed to function.” -Dr. Ray McClanahan
ABOUT THE EPISODE
In this episode of the MedFit Podcast, Dr. Ray McClanahan, renowned podiatrist, and creator of Correct Toes®, shares his journey of enlightenment about the importance of teaching others to really think about their feet. Although Dr. McClanahan is not opposed to podiatric treatments, he believes that the first step to decreasing pain and improving function should start with a conversation about footwear.
In addition, after being blown away by the research presented by Dr. William Rossi, Dr. McClanahan sought alternative methods to treat his own hammertoes and bunions through wearing footwear that would allow extra space at the front of the shoe. From here, Dr. McClanahan created Correct Toes, “soft, flexible silicone that encourages toes back to their natural alignment at birth, aligns toes, improves balance and stability, and relieves foot pain.” Dr. Ray McClanahan is a true leader in the field of podiatry and this interview may forever change the way you think about your feet and footwear!
