The 22nd Annual Cross Country Cherokee Challenge – Cherokee High School – Marlton NJ

We will be attending and setting up once again this year at the Cherokee Challenge kick off race of South Jersey! We had so much fun sweating it out last year that we couldn’t say no to coming back again this year. We will be just to the right of the Running Co of South Jersey.

This unusual meet, sponsored by Nike and The Running Company of South Jersey, with its shorter racing distances, class scoring, and unique coed team scoring, provides a great, low-key opportunity for runners to begin the competitive season, and we hope you “take the Challenge” this year!

Atrophy of gluteus maximus among women with a history of chronic low back pain

Saw a nice article recently post from our neighbors over at Department of Physical Therapy, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 2 School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, 3 Department of Biomedical Education and Anatomy, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.

Article Title: Atrophy of gluteus maximus among women with a history of chronic low back pain

Methods:  For this case-control study, we analyzed medical history and pelvic computed tomography (CT) scans for 36 female patients with a history of chronic LBP, and 32 female patients without a history of LBP. Muscle cross-sectional area of gluteus maximus was measured from axial CT scans using OsiriX MD software, then was normalized to patient height, and used to compare the two groups. The number of back pain-related medical visits was also correlated with gluteus maximus cross-sectional area.

Conclusions: This research demonstrated a previously only minimally explored relationship between gluteus maximus cross-sectional area and LBP in women. Further research is indicated in individuals with varying age, sex, and LBP diagnoses.

Direct Link: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0177008

Take away ideas from this study in a nut shell:  

This research confirmed Thomas Jefferson’s Physical Therapy Researchers hypothesis that Glute Max atrophy would be greater in individuals with chronic LBP. Further research is indicated on Glute Max CSA in individuals with varying age, sex, and LBP diagnoses. Research on the potential impact of exercise interventions targeting GM in individuals with chronic LBP is also indicated.

If you are struggling with low back pain, we can almost always help! We combine chiropractic, active release, home exercise programs and much more to the treatment of all types of back pain. Give us a call at 856.228.3100 for more information or send us an email a the link below!

Injured Redskins turn to chiropractor to recover quickly – Richmond Times

Earlier this month a great article went up on the Richmond Times about how Washington Redskins players were turning to Chiropractic Medicine to return to the field quicker. We love great information about Chiropractic, Active Release Technique, and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue work! The best part of the story is that the Chiropractor helped him with his Achilles injuries, just like we do at our office here in South Jersey. We do a lot more than just low back pain and neck pain, check out the article below for more info.

Link: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:1RIqXi4TG5cJ:www.richmond.com/redskins-xtra/injured-redskins-turn-to-chiropractor-to-recover-quickly/article_a72268f8-3bac-598e-94b3-dda2761f5310.html&num=1&hl=en&gl=us&strip=0&vwsrc=0

From the article:

Running back Mack Brown watched Josh Doctson’s college film this offseason, seeing clips of his teammate toe tapping in the end zone, high pointing passes and running crisp routes rolled into five-minute YouTube videos.

Doctson tried TheraBands to fix his Achilles injury, he tried stretching it and none of it helped reclaim his health. Brown knew what Doctson could do for the Redskins’ offense this season, so he recommended Doctson see Dr. Craig, a chiropractor in the Ashburn area who Brown visits for body maintenance.

“I knew he really was in pain. I was like, ‘You really need to go to this doctor to get your body worked on,’” Brown said. “You get Doctson at 100 percent, he’s a problem for the league, one of the best receivers in the league. We need to get him back healthy.”

One of the hallmarks of our newest office is the addition of one of the very few Cox 8 Flexion Distraction tables in New Jersey.  The Cox 8 Flexion Distraction are unique in that they very gently treat and restore normal spinal joint function, decompress herniated discs, and in some cases can help relieve issues associated with spinal stenosis to varying degrees.  Below are some videos of the Cox 8 Flexion Distraction in action.
