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.

ALINE Systems – Shoe Insoles, Shoe Inserts & Arch Supports

ALINE Systems Insoles have revolutionized the insole category with their multi-patented suspension zones, ribbed arches, and contour zones.

ALINE orthotics are designed to enhance your performance through improved support and alignment of the foot, ankle and lower kinematic chain! The alignment of your body is critical to proper and healthy movement. Our patented ALINE Suspension Technology combines over 100 moving ribs, bio mechanically correct supports, engineered suspension zones, a heel cup and gel pad to place your body in the correct alignment at the correct times during activity.

When you look at some of the less “performance minded” models of shoes from even the best sports shoe manufacturers, the amount of insole material supporting your arch is simply not good enough. In recent years, some running shoe manufactures have gotten better but often times soccer cleats, football cleats, baseball cleats, and high end basketball shoes are laughable when it comes to providing a proper or well fitted arch support.

Over 1000 professional athletes from Football, Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, Adventure racing, Snowboarding, Skiing, Cycling, MMA, Golf and other sports are wearing ALINE today to improve their training and performance. More than 100 X-Games medals, 13 Professional Golf Tournaments and 12 Olympic medals have been won by athletes with ALINE under their feet. Recently ALINE’s golf insole technology has even led to changes in the way some golf pros recognize and adapt to ground reactive forces!

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!

Taking the pain off your shoulders with Active Release Technique – Dr Mark Kemenosh and Assoicates

Link to original content on ActiveRelease.com – http://activerelease.com/news.asp

Pain in your shoulders can affect a wide range of activities. ART® providers treat cases of shoulder pain resulting from as little as working at your computer to participating in activities such as tennis, swimming, and golf. Shoulder pain is commonly slow to respond to traditional treatments, and if shoulder pain progresses, it can make simple tasks, such as reaching for things and sleeping, painful.

As with any type of injury, ART® first looks at the underlying cause of shoulder pain. The shoulder provides a great deal of motion for a single joint, and allows people to reach overhead, behind their bodies, across their chest, and to rotate their arms. The shoulder joint is comprised of the rounded end of the arm bone called the “humerus,” and the flat surface of the shoulder blade, known as the “scapula.” Because the shoulder is the joining of a flat and a round surface, it is a relatively loose joint, which is what enables it to provide such a wide range of motions. Stability and control of this motion is provided by the rotator cuffs and scapular stabilizers.

Shoulder injuries occur most often when significant stress or repetitive motion inhibit the rotator cuffs and scapular stabilizers from doing their job. Many people realize that sports such as tennis or golf can cause shoulder injuries easily. This is because these activities demand both a great deal of force from the rotator cuffs and scapular stabilizers, as their swinging motion requires the arm to reach far behind and in front of the body, and numerous repetitions of those motions.

What many people do not realize, is that shoulder injuries are often caused by the actions of their everyday lives. Any time you push, pull, lift, or carry anything with your arms, your shoulder muscles must contract to protect the shoulder. Even working at your computer requires a small ongoing contraction in the shoulder muscles. These may seem like small matters, but combined with the frequency with which many people complete these actions, these everyday activities can cause serious repetitive use injuries.

Inside the muscles and tendons, these motions cause small-scale muscle damages called microtrauma. If microtrauma is not able to heal, it can lead to the buildup of scar tissue also known as “adhesions.” Adhesions then contribute to the cumulative injury cycle, which can eventually lead to more serious injury, pain, and loss of function.

Traditional treatments for shoulder pain include rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications, ultrasound, muscle stimulation, steroid injections, stretching, exercises, and if these don’t succeed, surgery is recommended. If these methods are effective, they often must be done over a long period of time, and can be costly both monetarily and in the amount of time away from activities. Many of these methods are only able to treat the symptoms of shoulder pain and not the cause.

Active Release Techniques® locates the exact location of the adhesions and releases them, thus eliminating the underlying cause of the pain. To do this, the ART® provider will apply very specific pressure while you lengthen and stretch the tissue. Because of the hands-on nature of ART® treatment, as the provider releases the tissue in one area they are able to determine the overall health of the muscles and tissues in the area and provide the most comprehensive treatment possible.
