067 - Dr Emily Splichal Barefoot Function & Barefoot Science

Dr Emily Splichal, Functional Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist, is the Founder of EBFA Global, Creator of the Barefoot Training Specialist® Certification, Author of Barefoot Strong and CEO / Founder of Naboso Barefoot Technology.

With over 20 years in the fitness industry, Dr Splichal has dedicated her medical/podiatry career towards studying postural alignment and human movement as it relates to barefoot science, foot to core integration and sensory integration.

This episode may challenge your current way of thinking, but I believe it's an episode you DO NOT WANT TO MISS. 

On this episode we discuss:

  • How her career began in Forensic Science and transitioned into Podiatry and Human Movements
  • Treatment biases
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Using your degree from a different perspective 
  • Evidence-Based Fitness Academy - EBFA Global
  • The problem with making polar comments 
  • The real concept of barefoot running and heel-strike
  • How to make your day-to-day podiatry work more interesting 

Patient Expectations

You got to be honest with your patients and give them realistic outcomes and timelines.

You must let them know that if they've been moving in a compensated way for twenty years they cannot expect you to do one thing and BOOM, everything goes away, that's not realistic. 

"Forever be a student and keep learning, look for resources outside of our profession. Go beyond podiatry mainstream, broaden your scope, and then bring it back and apply it to podiatry and continuously evolve". - Dr Emily Splichal
