Show Notes from this episode

Dr. Glaser, DPM studied mechanical engineering at SUNY Stonybrook and received his doctorate in podiatric medicine at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. Although not a common path for a podiatrist, it turned out to be the right exposure for a future foot biomechanist. Dr. Glaser developed a thriving practice over thirteen years and then chose to walk away from that success to challenge orthopedic conventions with the development of MASS Posture Theory. Thirty years and over a million pairs of orthotics later, Dr. Glaser made his life’s mission a reality with Sole Supports, the orthotics lab he founded, which operates under the core value: ‘We make people better’.

MASS Posture Theory is a unique look at managing foot biomechanics from an engineering perspective, utilizing an all-axis model based on individual idealized gait, published in the Foot and Ankle Foundation Online Journal. Dr. Glaser has earned a celebrated national and international reputation for re-visioning and re-engineering foot orthotics and the way practitioners can significantly correct biomechanics in the foot and lower extremity – and ultimately the entire body.

For the last several years, Dr. Glaser has been lecturing for health care professionals focused on treating United States military active-duty service members. Additionally, he is researching and developing the Relax, Release, Relief technology: a series of releases designed to manually and mechanically interrupt the neurological feedback loop that causes so many instances of chronic pain. RRR is used as the preferred method of arch support break-in of Sole Supports custom orthotics.
