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.

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.”

The ELDOA Method has hit the Jersey Shore, coming soon to Haddonfield and Mount Laurel!

This past weekend, Jill Kemenosh, Dr. Mark Kemenosh, and CK Pilates hosted an introduction to The ELDOA Method to help combat typical areas of pain and tenderness with a new type of deep myofascial stretching.  ELDOA, which translates to LOADS (longitudinal osteoarticular decoaptation system) was developed by world renowned Osteopath, Guy Voyer, initially to provide rehabilitation for people suffering from scoliosis. Each posture was developed with surgeon-like precision, working on decompressing individual spinal segments. This precision bring an added diagnostic benefit to the training: it exposes specific weaknesses and give the practitioner the information needed to tackle their individual issues even after one class.  The most commonly treated issues with ELDOA are low back pain and neck pain.

The intro class was structured to include ELDOA for each segment of the spine – lumbar, thoracic, cervical – and the exercises are beneficial to anyone and everyone taking the class. This training alone was successful in slowing down and even reversing the effects of scoliosis. It is now used by a variety of people (professional athletes, children, seniors, exercise enthusiasts) for countless benefits including; pain relief, postural alignment and awareness, spinal decompression, better neurological and endocrine function and full body fitness.

Here are some photos of the event hosted at CK Pilates in Marmora, NJ!  (Click on them for the full view)

The Training Room – The Big 3 Workshop : Squat, Bench and Deadlift Thursday June 8 at 6:30 PM – 8 PM

Whether you want to pack on muscle, burn fat or look great for the summer, there is no better way than the Big 3 Lifts. The Squat, Deadlift, and Bench Press are the core of any proper weight lifting program. Being able to perform them properly is often a struggle. Sacrificing form can not only limit what you gain from these lifts, but can also put you at risk for injury. What’s the point of lifting if you aren’t going to reap the benefits or you’re setting yourself up for injury?

If you are interested in learning proper technique in the squat, deadlift and bench, then come learn from TTR Performance’s Coach, Marc Lang. He will be leading this interactive workshop to help athletes gain a better understanding of the proper form for these lifts.

Attendance is limited to 25 people. If you would like to attend, be sure to register now…Call 856-874-9700 or email rsisholtz@thetrainingroompt.com

U.S. News and World Report – Sports Chiropractic Treatment for Running Injuries

Cruising the web this weekend waiting for Sunday to roll around for the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia, this article popped up on my twitter feed shared by colleague in North Jersey!  I’m usually all over good press for the work my team and I do here at the office, and even more so on the look out when it comes to helping runners.

From the article:

Why see a sports chiropractor for a running injury?

Although physical therapy is often the first line of defense in rehabbing a running injury, many athletes and runners have started to rely on sports medicine-trained chiropractors. While physical therapy can focus on strengthening and coordination, chiropractic care is designed to improve joint mobilization, making sure that all the joints in the body are moving correctly. Hirad Bagy, founder of the United Wellness Center in Herndon, Va., and team chiropractor for the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals and DC United, believes that sports chiropractic care has evolved to incorporate the best of both worlds of joint mobilization techniques and soft tissue repair, creating a new gold standard of best practices in treatment plans for patients.

From the article:

Active Release Technique for runners

After three months of not being able to run, in almost constant pain ranging from my iliotibial band to the back of my hip and then into my psoas muscle, I was admittedly ready for anything when my orthopedist suggested trying Active Release Technique. According to Bagy, the reason that Active Release Technique can be beneficial – especially for iliotibial band and hip injuries – is that it combines different muscle work that breaks down scar tissue while also emphasizing correct flexibility. Through Active Release, as Bagy explains, you can actually “elongate some of the muscle fibers making those muscles more pliable and therefore healthier.”

Anyone preparing for ART should know that this is not a particularly gentle treatment. I tried telling myself that it would be like a deep tissue massage, which I enjoy, although I quickly learned that while highly effective (after three weeks my pain, though still there, was incrementally improving), the pressure and work on the muscles is deep and sometimes painful.

Dr. Axe – 5 Active Release Technique Benefits, Including Lowered Pain & Increased Performance

An awesome article popped up on my Facebook feed this weekend as I was aggressively looking for updates about the Penn Relays!  Dr. Josh Axe gets invited reguarly to speak on shows like The Doctors and Dr. Oz.  It was awesome to see more in the news about Active Release Technique and how it can be used to treat most common conditions.

Dr. Axe’s blog had the following information to get started about what Active Release is:

Relieving tight muscles and trigger points can make a big difference in reducing joint stress and improving your overall quality of life. That’s why you should consider active release technique (ART). It can help turn on muscles that have been turned off due to injury and eliminate muscular pain.

Active release technique is a type of soft tissue therapy that helps relieve tight muscles and nerve trigger points, greatly reducing joint stress or muscular pains. I’ve visited ART practitioners for years to help me overcome a number of muscle- and joint-related injuries.

Dr Craig’s favorite prehabilitation exercise – Monster Walk with Theraband

I teach this exact exercise several times a day as well as a few variations almost on the daily since the basis of most of our patients are runners.  This exercise can never be done slowly enough, anyone can do this movement quickly but slow down and act like you have a hot cup of coffee in your hands.  Almost everyone does these exercises quickly and while there is nothing wrong with that, slower is almost always better.  Check out all the following videos on how to practice this excellent prehab movement for most runners struggling with “typical runner stuff”.

If you are a South Jersey runner struggling with pain and tenderness as we lead up to the big part of summer running season which is just ahead (Broad Street Run, Philly Rock N Roll Half, Chicago Marathon, Philly Half and Philly Marathon are all on the horizon) give us a call at 856.228.3100.

Rocktape – Kinesiology Tape Instructions – Plantar Fasciitis ( Video )

Here at the office we see Plantar Fasciitis “limp”, “stumble”, and “trot” in just about everyday and now that “running season” has sprung with SPRING, we expect plantar to start coming in even more as we progress towards summer here in South Jersey.  Here at the office we use Active Release Technique, IASTM with SMART Tools (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation), kinesio tapes like Rocktape, and chiropractic extremity manipulations.  We see cases that have already been injected by podiatrists and orthopedics a like with only limited success.  We are simply sharing this video because we see a lot terrible tape jobs so give this one a try!
