The regular livestream, PodChatLive that is the live show for Podiatrists for getting some free ongoing continuing education has had on numerous prominent and well known guests in the podiatry profession that generously and freely give there time for it to answer questions and talk about their area of expertise. The videos of the live stream are stored on YouTube as well as the website and the podcast recording is on most podcast platforms. An early on guest in the livestreams was Dr. Kevin Kirby, DPM in which he described his seminal and well-known publication on rotational equilibrium, his views on the tissue stress concept as well as his opinion on whether or not any current information about Root Theory is necessary to examine and properly treat our patients. The queries generated some helpful dialogue during the episode.
Kevin Kirby graduated in 1983 with the California College of Podiatric Medicine after which finished his required surgical residency in Palo Alto, California at the VA Hospital. He then put in his subsequent post-graduate year undertaking the Fellowship in Podiatric Biomechanics at the college where he also completed his masters degree.

Kevin evolved the Subtalar Joint Axis Palpation Technique, the Anterior Axial Radiographic Projection, the Supination Resistance Test, the Maximum Pronation Test and the Medial Heel Skive and Lateral Heel Skive Techniques. He has furthermore developed and formulated the Subtalar Joint Axis Location and Rotational Equilibrium Theory of Foot Function and has now co-developed the Subtalar Joint Equilibrium and Tissue Stress Approach to Biomechanical Therapy of the Foot and Lower Extremity. Dr Kirby has spoken publicly internationally on a number of occasions and has additionally lectured extensively all around the USA.
