Science Says Running Helps You Live Longer – MapMyRun.com

Link to original study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28365296

Original Study Title: Running as a Key Lifestyle Medicine for Longevity.

Journal: Progressive Cardiovascular Disease

While the doctors here aren’t totally surprised to see an article like this one go online, we do like the idea that walking or running at a high level for around two hours of time weekly greatly help your heart stay in better shape which then adds years to your life!

From the Article written by Lara Rosenbaum:

The benefits of running are countless. Easy and obvious ones are improved cardiovascular health — including lower levels of cholesterol, better moods and increased bone density. And now there’s another major plus to regularly lacing up your sneakers and racking up some miles: a longer life.

THE LATEST STUDY

If you already love running, here’s another reason to dig it: A new study published in Progress in Cardiovascular Disease, revealed that running may add about three years to your life, and reduce the risk of early mortality by up to 40%. “Running decreases many risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and it strengthens the heart more so than other forms of exercise given its ability to drive the heart rate up and keep it sustained at a high rate,” explains exercise physiologist and running coach, Jason Karp, PhD, author of “The Inner Runner.” “Running also increases aerobic power (VO2 max) more than other forms of cardio — and VO2 max is the single biggest indicator of a person’s aerobic fitness.”

ELDOA Method Group Introductory Class! CK Pilates – Marmora New Jersey – Saturday May 20th

Jill Kemenosh is proud to introduce The ELDOA Method next weekend at CK Pilates (Marmora, NJ) and will be taking on a limited amount of students to start practicing the deep myofascial stretching techniques created by Guy Voyer, DO.  The ELDOA Method is deeply rooted in techniques to greatly reduce low back pain, neck pain, and to better centralize joints to help prevent further injury and to better help tissues like the discs heal whenever possible.

Jill Kemenosh is an Authentic Pilates instructor who started into The ELDOA Method about a year ago Dr. Voyer was featured at the Titleist Performance Institute World Golf Fitness seminar in 2016.

Date: Saturday, May 20th, 2017

Time: 10:00 AM

PDF Format Flyer – framework and CK Pilates, in collaboration with Dr. Mark kemenosh & Assocaites presents-3

To register, call 856-761-2332.  Space for this course is limited so registration is a must. 

So what is the the Eldoa Method?  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 instructors.  To see our last post about Dr. Mark and Jill taking the Eldoa part 1 certification courses a few months back, see the link below!

Dr Mark Kemenosh – ELDOA Method – Colorado seminar this past weekend

Jill went on after the Colorado Level I certifications to obtain her Level II and III certifications in The ELDOA Method later and you can see more about this at the following link.

Jill Kemenosh is now Level I and II certified in the Eldoa Method!

Definition:  The ELDOA are postural exercises (LOADS) that you can do yourself with the primary goal being to increase the space within a chosen articulation. As the ELDOA “create” space, there is an improvement in joint mechanics, increased blood flow, reduced pressure on the discs, a reduction of pain, spinal disc rehydration, better muscle tone, improved posture, and a sense of well being and awareness.

The human spine is a complicated and vital structure. Compression and articular blocks can cause pain, arthritis and neurological conditions. The ELDOA exercises are a highly effective solution to these conditions. The ELDOA are very precise postures that target a specific joint region to provide relief from pain and restore balance. LOADS (Longitudinal Osteo-articular Decoaptation Stretches) are postural self-normalizing techniques, which aim at widening the space within a pair of joints. It is possible in one minute a day to relieve disc compression between L5-S1 or even more specifically at the base of the long arm of the left sacroiliac joint.

We are hoping to host the next intro to ELDOA class at Haddonfield Fitness, right next to our office in Haddonfield, New Jersey.  Details should be posted online soon!

ESPN Outside The Lines – Quality Of Care – Back Pain Strikes Down two Indiana University Athletes

While I was on the treadmill and working out yesterday at the gym ESPN’s investigative reporting journal, Outside The Lines, came on and showed a very interesting story (to a chiropractor who works on a good deal of young athletes at least).  The story started about the mismanagement and treatment of several young athletes at the Indiana University who developed a great deal of mid, low back and hip pain.  Two in particular had striking stories about the misdiagnosis of back pain that was very serious and one had to have a fairly serious surgery that might very well have been corrected using conservative measures if they were properly diagnosed and treated in the first place.  In the case of the football player, it seemed to some extent that he was “machoed” into continuing to suit up by the coaching staff. The simple fact is this, if you can barely walk across campus, you probably can’t withstand football practice.  If you are an athlete or the parent of an athlete, you should probably check out this podcast or look for a re-run of the episode on ESPN because it was saddening and informative about what happens when athletes quite simply push themselves too far.  While it was tough to say who is truly at fault, it was a poor choice of the coaches and trainers at the university who let these issues spiral out of control.

If you are in a situation where you are simply being told to rub some dirt on it and to play and something truly feels off, please seek outside medical care from a qualified healthcare practitioner.  In both of the cases shown in this article, it took far too long for the true problem to be identified, diagnosed and the proper treatment protocols activated.

Podcast Teaser: Indiana football coach Kevin Wilson lost his job in December and reports surfaced of players alleging medical care had been neglected. Our 3-month investigation found more.

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.
