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

Dr Mark Kemenosh and his daughter Jill Kemenosh, our future Pilates guru at the office both traveled to Colorado this past weekend to become certified in the Level 1 ELDOA Method which Dr. Mark started to do earlier this year when he studied under Guy Voyer, a DO who started the manual technique commonly referred to as “Joint Pumping”.  Dr. Kemenosh was exposed to Dr. Voyer who spoke at the Titlelist Performance Institute Wolf Golf Classic in late 2016 on the topics of articular joint pumping and the ELDOA method which has started to take fire in the golf training world.

Some of the techniques in the ELDOA method are greatly centered around techniques to help with injury prevention, reduce joint inflammation and arthrosis, delay disc degeneration, increase disc hydration, and to even possibly normalize disc bulges.

Here is some information from the ELDOA Methods webiste:

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

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.

Here are some pictures from Dr. Mark and Jill’s seminar!  There might be videos to come but they couldn’t easily email those back to home base here in South Jersey!

Just like Pilates, we feel that the ELDOA Methods will greatly benefit our patients suffering with spine related issues and even more so with core stability and strength!  Both Pilates and ELDOA are very core-centric types of exercise for correcting and improving posture and the resting nature of the joints surrounding spine.  If you have questions about your issues or need to have questions answers, feel free to call us at 856-228-3100 or email us below!

Very nice summation of Chiropractic at Harvard Health’s website!

Up until last year the “Chiropractic” write up on Harvard Health’s website was very bland and vanilla.  It was more or less a very basic article.  At some point in 2016, they updated it and it truly aligns with the feelings of our office and how we approach our piece of medicine!

Article Link:  http://www.health.harvard.edu/pain/chiropractic-care-for-pain-relief?inf_contact_key=cd3df7fb1bc932636c26c98ec9f77b669326fbb8a84664eeb96b5eb28d57211b

Some VERY valuable outtakes from the article are:

“Most research on chiropractic has focused on spinal manipulation for back pain. Chiropractic treatment for many other problems—including other musculoskeletal pain, headaches, asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia—has also been studied. A recent review concluded that chiropractic spinal manipulation may be helpful for back pain, migraine, neck pain, and whiplash.”

AND…

“In addition, a chiropractor may advise you about changing your biomechanics and posture and suggest other treatments and techniques. The ultimate goal of chiropractic is to help relieve pain and help patients better manage their condition at home.”

Those two statements align extremely strongly with our views here at the office.  All of the associates here at the office, Dr. Andrew, Dr. Craig, and Dr. Tim found a great deal of ease working with Dr. Kemenosh because he always feels strongly that you treat the conditions we know we can help with and we refer out to other medical professionals whenever that is the best options for the patient!

If you are suffering with pain, and old sports injury, a relatively new sports injury, or some type of dysfunction in the body, we may be able to help!  If you have questions, you can always call our main line at 856-228.3100 or reach out to us on our CONTACT US PAGE BELOW!

Dr Craig broke down and picked up a pair of Clifton 3’s from HokaOneOne

I am not the biggest HokaOneOne fan for myself, but after two years of urging from Dr. Mark as well as the owner of the Haddonfield Running Company, I broke down and picked up a pair this past weekend.  Dave Welsh of the Haddonfield Running Co knows I like dark colored running shoes and nicknamed my last pair of Adidas Boosts my “Vaders” because they were black on black with just a slight amount of dark charcoal gray.  So when a pair of black on black Hoka Clifton 3’s came in, he let me know immediately.

Being honest, I have not attempted to run in these yet and have been steadily picking up the mileage as I train and look forward to my yearly marathon in Chicago this coming October!  I have cruised around the office in them and worn them a few times walking around the neighborhood in an attempt to break them in a bit.  I’m very gun shy about switching shoes because the last time I was asked to run in the Asics Meta’s which came out last year at Thanksgiving as well as the Asics Gel Cumulus 17’s this past winter, and nothing what so ever against the shoes, but after a few runs in each I knew why I stick to my steadfast rule of not switching shoes very much once I find something that works for me.
