Tri856 Kick Off Party – Spring 2019 – Aistriu Marlton

Very excited to be invited back once again for the Tri856 Kick Off Party held this year at Aistriu in Marlton, NJ! We practically broke the seams of the Haddonfield Running Co last year, so in order to grow had to move over to Aistriu! We are always thankful to our friends at the Running Co of Haddonfield for ALWAYS BEING THE BEST, but this club is growing by leaps and bounds in 2019!

Triathletes, Triathlon coaches, Road Bikes, Mountain Bikes, Chiropractors and Physical Therapists all combined under one roof for more than a few reasons to chat all kinds of issues surrounding the sport of triathlon! If you were worried that we didn’t have any fun, just see the pictures below!

Thank you SO VERY MUCH to Aistriu for hosting our event, not kicking us out for being corny and in general just being FANTASTIC HOSTS!

Thank you SO VERY MUCH to Tri856 for making sure we were invited and had plenty of space to show off and demo Active Release Techniques!

Thank you very much for placing us perfectly between two great physical therapy groups! We kept them from turning the opportunity to turn this into a physical therapist cage match (just kidding).

Haddonfield Adrenaline 5K Race and Post Active Release Party 2019

The Haddonfield Adrenaline 5K Race went off with a bang this year, just like it has every year in the past and will continue to do so in the future! Dr’s Trisha Sileo and Craig Evans both ran the race and held their own in different respective ways. Dr. Trisha held a solid race long pace of about 30 seconds faster than she normally trains at during cardio races and Dr. Craig nearly pushed his daughters in the double stroller to a sub 30 minute total race which may likely be one of his best to date in the double stroller.

Across the board times were very fast for the event and several men and women finished in sub 20 minutes which is a very good sign for the quality of field that a race like the Adrenaline Run brings out each year. The race quality is thankful for the concerted efforts of the Haddonfield Running Co and the best shoe sponsor around, Brooks Running! Dave and TJ always make the day great and outside support from running clubs like the SJAC (South Jersey Athletic Club), Pine Land Striders, Run856, Run215, Break Neck Running Club and the Bryn Mawr Running Clubs are always great to see. Various high school and college aged runners from various organizations are almost always present as well including Haddonfield High School, Haddon Township High School, Haddon Heights School, Cherry Hill East, Cherry Hill West, Cherokee, Lenape, Shawnee, Bishop Eustace and Camden Catholic were all represented to at least some extent!

For us, some of the most fun comes after the race when we set up a few chiropractic tables in the basement of the Haddonfield Running Company and get to work using Active Release, IASTM, and our Chiropractic skills on most any runner who is or has been a patient. Talking running and working with runners to solve “runner probs” is more or less when of the best parts about this job! Thank you ten times over to the Haddonfield Running Co for hosting such an AWESOME race and letting us be a part of it now for 7 or 8 years straight!

Here are some pictures of the post race Active Release being done in the basement of the Running Co, it’s sweaty, a lot of bad jokes are told and a lot of running injuries are discussed! Click on the thumbnails below for some priceless expressions.

Chiropractic Care at Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Associates

Chiropractic care at Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Associates chiropractic clinic can diagnose and treat problems that affect the nerves, muscles, bones, and joints of your body, in the back and spine, or in the extremities as well. At a basic level a chiropractor will gently adjust your spine which often times brings relief of back pain when possible. At a deeper level chiropractors are doing much more than just adjusting or manipulation of the spine.

After your initial visit and consultation your chiropractor at Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Associates, we will have a good idea of what your treatment plan is going to consist of. We almost always treat on the first day you see us because we are interested in getting you up and back to moving around as quickly as medically responsible.

How many treatments will you need?

Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Associates chiropractic treatments can range from a few days to several weeks depending on the severity of your condition or the results you want to achieve. Chiropractic care can also be a lifelong choice to keep you on a path of well-being and solid core strength.

Many professional athletes continue to see a chiropractor even when there is no acute pain, as regular adjustments can keep you aligned and in peak form. The Chiropractic team at Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Associates in various offices across South Jersey are not just there when it really hurts; they can be in your corner frequently, keeping your body’s systems communicating at a high level and keeping muscle and bone deterioration at bay.

What causes back pain?

The back is a complex structure of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles. Damage to any of the structures can lead to back pain, with various degrees of severity. Back pain has a long list of causes and we are all likely to suffer at some point in our lives from poor posture, obesity, or psychological stress. Each of these can lead to back pain or take it from a point of being able to manage yourself to need a professional team like our office to help you stay up right and moving freely without pain or discomfort.

Some tips to prevent back pain:

  • Maintain a healthy diet and weight
  • Stretch and exercise (ask your chiropractor what is safe or effective in relieving pain as well as increasing function)
  • Maintain proper posture at work
  • Wear low heeled shoes with adequate support and fit

While this is not an exhaustive list of tips, it’s a good starting point on the road to optimum back health. Contact our awesome team of Chiropractic Physcians today for more information. 856.228.3100 has been our phone number for over 30 years!

Dr Mark Kemenosh and Associates – Chiropractic Clinic – Bulging Discs – Herniated Discs

Bulging Discs – Herniated Discs – Slipped Discs – Back Pain – Sciatica

Have you ever heard of a slipped disc? It’s a misnomer. Discs almost never truly “slip”, but they can often times bulge or herniate. When they do, our team can almost always be able to help. Intervertebral disc disorders are referred to as “contained” or “non-contained.” A bulging disc is considered a contained disc disorder.

What is a bulging disc?

A bulging disc is actually the tough outer layer of cartilage in between your vertebrae that has not fully broken open – think of squeezing a balloon filled with hair gel. The disc may protrude into the spinal canal without pain or breaking open, instead, a small bubble pops out but remains attached to the disc.
Discs are exactly the right size to fit between your vertebrae so when a disc bulges, it extends outside the space it should normally occupy and can push into nerves in your spinal column.
Bulging is considered part of the normal aging process of the disc making bulging discs an extremely common spinal injury. A bulging disc can stay relatively pain free and undetected until you twist the wrong way, lift the wrong object, sneeze, or cough. A bulging disc can cause excruciating pain, lead to a diminished range of motion, and can in some cases cause organ dysfunction.
The good news is that even an acute disc bulge can heal itself over time and your chiropractor can likely help the healing process happen more efficiently.

Here are 4 steps you can follow to ease the pain of a bulging disc:

  1. Develop a relationship with the team at our office!

There are many bulging disc treatments; talk to your chiropractor and ask questions about your MRI or X-ray. Everyone is different and a good chiropractor can help you find the correct wellness path and will not close off any avenue to get you well. In our office we offer several diffferent methods of Chiropractic, Active Release Technique, Cox Flexion Distraction Technique and many others for helping you deal with the pain and related issues of discal problems.

  1. Improve your posture

Reduce or eliminate bending, lifting, twisting and even sitting for too long. Sleep on your back with your knees propped up, or on your side with a pillow between your legs. These simple adjustments will ease the stress on the disc in question. We often overlook something as basic as good posture in cases of a disc related issue, but it is paramount to keep the disc as centered and comfortable with the loads being distrubuted evenly.

  1. Strengthen your core

Your abdominal muscles and leg muscles all support your back. While the core was once thought to only be the abdominal muscles, we now commonly refer to the core as being everything from the diaphragm which attaches to your thoracic spine. Modified yoga or Pilates routines that eliminate twisting, stooping or bending can help heal your bulging disc or help to prevent further damage. Our pilates team in Mount Laurel offers modified courses in ELDOA and Pilates which target specific types of back pain related disorders as well.

Contact our team at Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Associates today if you are suffering with the problems listed above. We look forward to hearing from you soon, 856.228.3100

If you have questions and need to email our doctors, please use the Contact Us Page on our website today!

Common causes of foot pain – plantar heel pain versus plantar fasciitis

Plantar Heel Pain – soreness or tenderness of the heel that has a location restricted to the UNDERSIDE (heel pad) of the heel bone. Pain often times radiates from the central part of the heel pad towards the BACK OF THE HEEL itself…

VS…

Plantar Fasciitis – involves inflammation of the thick band of tissue (THE PLANTAR FASCIA) that runs across the bottom of your foot from the heel bone to your toes. Pain usually starts in the front of the heel bone and feels like it travels through the plantar fascia towards the toes.

Heel pain, plantar fasciitis, plantar heel pain, usually respond well to Active Release Technique and IASTM at our office!

The Bad News: It sucks and it hurts, usually causing us to limp.

The Good News: We treat them both and know when to ask for HELP if need be!

Struggling with either issue, give us a call 856.228.3100 or EMAIL US ON OUR CONTACT US PAGE below!

ELDOA METHOD Classes

The ELDOA exercises and Myofascial Stretches are specific techniques created by world renowned osteopath, Guy VOYER DO. ELDOA METHOD Classes are semi private group classes organized by certified ELDOA/MFS Instructor, Stephanie McCusker, who uses a combination of these techniques as well as other Somatraining techniques to deliver the most beneficial sessions possible. The ELDOA METHOD classes were founded in Los Angeles, CA and are now being offered here in Auckland, NZ. These Classes are not based on a formula. Every class is designed to respect the proper progressions and order of the techniques as taught by Dr. Voyer to ensure quality. These classes will vary depending on the needs of those participating. There will be an intentional goal set for each designated class and will be ever changing to continually challenge each individual while encouraging their overall improvements.

BENEFITS OF ELDOA METHOD Classes

ELDOAs and Myofascial Stretches are very specific and complex techniques that require strong attention to form and correct progressions. Everyone will benefit from the effects of ELDOAs and MFS but each person is different and without proper instruction and help from a Certified ELDOA/MFS Instructor, these techniques will not be as effective. By attending the classes, you not only receive instruction from a certified instructor but the full hour dedicated to stretching enhances the many benefits including:

  • Normalize Disc Bulges
  • Reduced Degrees of Scoliosis
  • Increased Flexibility
  • Improved Muscle Performance and Tone
  • Normalization of Visceral Function
  • Reduced Stress
  • Injury Recovery and Prevention
  • Reduced Joint Inflammation and Arthrosis
  • Delayed Disc Degeneration
  • Increased Disc Hydration
  • Increased Blood Flow
  • Improved Posture
  • Relief of Chronic and Acute Back Pain
  • Relief of Neck and Shoulder Tension
  • Improved Awareness and Overall Wellbeing
  • Improved Recovery Time for Sports and Training
  • Reduced Forward Head Posture

**DISCLAIMER**

The ELDOA METHOD classes and website are not meant to diagnose or offer medical advice.  Do not rely on the information provided as an alternative to medical advise from your doctor or other registered health care providers. If you have specific questions about any medical matter, please consult your physician or professional health care provider. All those with a chronic/acute injury or medical condition who wish to attend the ELDOA METHOD Classes must first receive clearance from their doctor or registered health professional prior to participation.

Villanova University – Day Of Distance Track and Cross Country Coaching Seminar 2018 Recap – The Running Works

For the second year in a row I was able to attend The Running Works Day Of Distance hosted by Marcus O’Sullivan at Villanova University! For the second year in a row I was blown away at the shear amount of running knowledge and sense of community the coaches in Pennsylvania (mainly the Philadelphia area coaches) and New Jersey (mainly the South Jersey coaches).  Shak and Cricket at The Running Works just keep putting on a better coaches clinic each year and it’s a lot of fun to meet the coaches from outside our region, South Jersey, and to see the look on their faces when they realize we are at cross country seminar for the various reasons we attend to better support our team and this year we even took a patient along who is looking to make the leap into coaching other triathletes very soon!

The day overall went by way too quickly! First off, Villanova’s athletic complexes are under a major overhaul right now and the transformation from last year to this year was a huge improvement! The football stadium and track may have been under snow to some extent, but you can see from the pictures below everything keeps getting better! We checked in around 8:00 AM and Craig Virgin, the famous American cross country and 10k meter racer spoke promptly at 9:15am. After a short break we jumped directly back into coaching talk with Chris Fox, the head coach of distance and cross country running from Syracuse University and recent Big East Champion and National Champion coach in Cross Country who politely reminded Villanova fans that to do that, you have to beat Nova and everyone had a good chuckle over that.  Lunch just might be my favorite part of the day because I get a chance to sit with coaches that I don’t know and hear about issues from coaches outside of our region like the western suburbs of Philadelphia and northern New Jersey.  The afternoon seminars I selected were with Phil Warton on Active Isolated Flexibility and Stretching followed by Marcus O’Sullivan on novice coaching solutions. Phil Warton’s session on stretching was very interactive and fun and he focused a great deal of his talk towards keeping young runner legs happy, including the hips! It was fun to see someone else who I have never met before “preaching the gospel” that happy hips make for good runner legs and improved spinal mechanics. The best part of my day, and my guest triathlete also agreed was “Novice Coaching Session with Marcus O’Sullivan” who broke down how easy it is to worry about to many variables when coaching high school cross country and while data and science can be infaliable, don’t forget when you are coaching middle schoolers, high schoolers, or even college kids to support them no matter what and to do the best to keep them healthy! Marcus when into how he almost retired from running and open road racing at age 32 because he had still never found a system of training before that which worked for him and it wasn’t until he started to let someone else help coach him along with decreasing the intensity of workouts from time to time based on blood lactate threshold levels and heart rate that he was then able to prolong her 5k and 10k racing career to the age of 37 and he joked several different times that he did it by listening to his body more and running hard a good bit less. Yes, you read that correctly, at 32 years of age, he ran almost as fast as he did at 22 in the prime of his career by listening to his coach and decreasing his high intensity mileage and working more on staying healthy.

Renowned Surgeon Dr. James Andrews on How to Protect Young Pitchers from Arm Injuries – The Dan Patrick Show – 6/14/2017 – Throwing Injuries

Ok, so you’re looking for advice on how to keep your kids playing baseball pain and injury free! You realize that limiting throwing injuries is very important to the health of your children’s arm. You have come to the right place! This post just doesn’t go out for baseball players! This post is great for runners, gymnasts, football, soccer, cheer leading and any other athlete potentially doing too much of any single activity.  Doing the same sport or activity year round in young athletes creates problems due to fatigue of the structures involved and then leading to over use injuries. You don’t have to take our word for it, because Dr. James Andrews has it all laid out for you as the expert on this topic, and the doctor who reattaches the structures if they eventually tear! The first video is very short and focuses only on the problems associated with throwing arms. The second interview is a bit longer and talks somewhat about Dr. Andrews history, growing up an Atlanta Braves fan, working on arm issues in quarterbacks (Troy Aikman) and the surgery he is most proud of which he talks about in ACL surgeries, the REHAB BEHIND ACL SURGERIES, and the Tommy John Surgery. “I believe it starts in youth baseball if you take a comprehensive history”. “The problem in youth baseball is specialization and overworking them, year round baseball is leading to overuse injuries” as stated in the second video.

More info on Tommy John surgery, better known as UCL surgery or Ulnar Collateral Ligament surgery, from good trusted sources.
