    it could be because your tibialis anterior (and other muscles along your skin) is tight.

    i was just about to take u seriously untill i saw u call ur self ‘HOTyogadoctor’ lol. its ridicolous, ur nowhere near hot and ur insulting the real doctors by calling urself one..

    @nancyflo Hi I ‘m wondering how much of your problem is about creating balance of strength between front + back sides of your body. Consider this: Walking is posture in motion. So I’m guessing that the way you hold your body has been affected by the change in your movements since your lumbar fusion. Would you be willing to ask yr questions online at the forum at hotyogadoctor? We can really get into details together.

    since having a lumbar fusion i have great difficulty swinging my legs forward to effect proper heel strike so i shuffle on the balls of my feet. can u suggest any exercise to correct this? thanks!

    I really like how you teach me to walk properly – and improve my balance. I;m sure this would reduce the chances of spraining my ankle!
