Staying safe on the pickleball court: good advice for every age

Staying safe on the pickleball court: good advice for every age

Although it’s been around over 50 years, pickleball has really taken off in the last decade. According to USA Pickleball, nearly 4.3 million Americans play regularly. Of that total, some 67 percent are 55 or older.

Picking up a racket sport in middle age is not without risk. If you play or are planning to start, it’s important to do it safely.

Does insurance cover chiropractic care? It depends.

Does insurance cover chiropractic care? It depends.

Back in the 1980s, insurance coverage for chiropractic care was straightforward. “You either had health insurance or you didn’t. And if you had it, it typically covered chiropractic quite well, some allowing as many as 60 visits per year,” says Barbara Kemenosh, business manager for Mark Kemenosh and Associates Chiropractic in southern New Jersey. “Today, the landscape is radically different. The marketplace is splintered, with many different plans. Each plan has its own rules and it’s virtually impossible to stay ahead of all the nuances of coverage,” she says.

ELDOA: a unique stretching regimen that targets fascia

ELDOA is a myofascial stretch—designed to stretch and relax fascia, the tissue that surrounds and contains the muscles.

“I refer to ELDOA as the best thing you’ve never heard of,” says Dr. Mark Kemenosh, founder of Kemenosh and Associates Chiropractic. “It was invented by a brilliant doctor in France. It has quite a following throughout the world, but isn’t well known in south Jersey,” he says.

The right tool for the job: ART v IASTM

The right tool for the job: ART v IASTM – By: Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Dr. Trisha Sileo

Although the chiropractic practice of Dr. Mark Kemenosh is focused on ART – Active Release Techniques – Dr. Mark and his associates are also certified in IASTM – instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization.

IASTM has similar therapeutic goals as ART – myofascial release to prevent the formation of scar tissue, break up existing scar tissue, loosen muscle fibers and prevent them from adhering together. What differs is the delivery and the theory behind it.

Crunching the numbers: how many are In pain from working at home?

Crunching the numbers: how many are In pain from working at home?

We’ve known for a while that the coronavirus pandemic is making millions of office workers uncomfortable. Few had proper home offices set up when their office buildings closed. Working in a makeshift environment – the kitchen table, sofa or even from bed – is putting all kinds of strain on the body.  

Thanks to a recent insurance study, we have a better idea of how widespread the problem is. Although the study was completed in England, it’s reasonable to expect comparable numbers in the U.S., since our economies are similarly white-collar dominant. And it isn’t limited to working adults; home-schooling kids are also at risk.

Celebrating 40 years strong – and getting stronger

Celebrating 40 years strong – and getting stronger

1980. A Georgia peanut farmer, Jimmy Carter, was president. There was no internet. Cable news was in its infancy. Michael Jackson was the biggest act in music. And – we sure do remember this – the Philadelphia Phillies were on their way to winning their first-ever World Series.

On March 30 of that year, Dr. Mark Kemenosh earned his chiropractic license.

The rewards of a career in chiropractic

Dr. Mark Kemenosh

Take it from an expert: there has never been a better time to pursue a career as a chiropractor.

“Chiropractic has come a long way since I started, 40 years ago,” says Dr. Mark Kemenosh, who operates a dynamic practice of five locations in southern New Jersey. Back then, chiropractors worked on the fringes. They had devoted patients who benefited greatly from their work. But the rest of the medical community kept its distance – and insurance payors didn’t even consider supporting treatment.
