Active Release Techniques Therapy

Active Release Techniques:
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a patented soft tissue treatment system invented by Colorado Springs, CO Chiropractor Mike Leahy. Active Release Therapy is a form of deep tissue work that involves the muscles, tendons, fascia (covers muscle), ligaments, and nerves. It is used to treat acute or chronic injuries, repetitive strain injury and nerve entrapment’s like carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica. ART is also used before and after surgery to reduce scar tissue formation and build up.

What conditions can ART help?
ART can alleviate headaches, TMJ pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, hand pain, thumb pain, hip pain, knee pain, calf pain, ankle pain, and foot pain. ART also works on common injuries like; ITB Syndrome, Runners Knee, Shin Splints, Plantar Fasciitis, Rotator Cuff Injuries, Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow, Piriformis Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Sciatica. ART also can remove scar tissue build up after surgery, and scar tissue build up from joint replacements, instead of going through painful and sometimes risky manipulations under Anesthesia.

How does ART work?
ART works to break up and remove scar tissue deep within and between muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. ART treatment is a hands on treatment where the doctor contacts the injured muscle, joint, ligament, or nerves with his thumb or fingers, the tissue is then shortened and moved through a range of motion while a tension is held over the injured structure. This breaks up the scared or fibrotic tissue present while reducing pain and improving range of motion.

How long will it take?
The average number of ART treatments for all conditions ranges between 5-15 visits per condition depending on severity and duration of symptoms. Typically treatments are 10-15 minutes long, and patients should bring shorts for lower back, hip, knee, ankle or foot injuries. For neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand injuries a tank top is recommended.

Lower Back Injury and what you can do!

Every year thousands of people suffer some type of lower back injury. This often requires a visit to their chiropractor as a result of gardening or doing some other type of yard work. This happens a lot in the spring when people are anxious to get outside and tend to their yards after months of being penned indoors by the winter season.

It is relatively easy to injure your back, especially if you are moving heavy objects around the yard. While good chiropractic care is always one of the first things you should do after receiving such an injury, you also want to consider the fact that chiropractic care, which occurs on a fairly regular basis, may help to curb some of these injuries in the first place as does following some common safety precautions when you are working in your yard. Our team can help you improve your readiness for the spring season using Active Release Technique, Chiropractic Manipulation, home exercise strategies, and improving your stretching at home as well!

There are a number of tips that can help you when it comes to preventing back injuries while you are working in your yard. Perhaps one of the most important things to remember is that in most cases, the more fit you are the less likely you are to suffer an injury of this type. Fitness is a good idea in any case and this is especially true when you are performing any type of rigorous physical activity. Good muscle tone and flexibility will go a long way toward helping you stay healthy and free from back injuries that can be very painful.

In addition, you always want to lift properly. Always lift with your knees and keep your feet in front of you approximately a shoulder length apart or even slightly wider. Whatever you do, always avoid lifting with your back. This is one of the primary reasons that people receive back injuries in the first place. Another thing you can do to reduce your chances of injuring your back is to use tools that work well for you. If you are an individual with a smaller build, you need to use smaller tools and try not to move things that are too heavy without help.

Of course, if you do feel tightness in your back, or you have had an especially hard day, you can typically relieve much of the tension by icing the muscles appropriately. If you prefer, you may want to alternate ice and heat in order to reduce inflammation and then relax the muscles. Ensure that you do not apply ice directly to the skin and that you use caution when applying heat as well.

It is always a good idea to visit your chiropractor on a regular basis even if you are not currently experiencing any problems. Professional golfers in particular have recently shown that they stay in top shape with semi regular visits to the chiropractor. This can prevent you from suffering a back injury or some other type of injury while you are working in your yard.

In the event that you do suffer an injury our team would be more than happy to help and can be an integral part of the recovery process. Working in your yard and getting ready for spring is something that most people enjoy, but it is also something that you should do carefully in order to ensure that you do not injure yourself. Be safe and contact us with any questions you may have.

Tri856 Kick Off Party – Spring 2019 – Aistriu Marlton

Very excited to be invited back once again for the Tri856 Kick Off Party held this year at Aistriu in Marlton, NJ! We practically broke the seams of the Haddonfield Running Co last year, so in order to grow had to move over to Aistriu! We are always thankful to our friends at the Running Co of Haddonfield for ALWAYS BEING THE BEST, but this club is growing by leaps and bounds in 2019!

Triathletes, Triathlon coaches, Road Bikes, Mountain Bikes, Chiropractors and Physical Therapists all combined under one roof for more than a few reasons to chat all kinds of issues surrounding the sport of triathlon! If you were worried that we didn’t have any fun, just see the pictures below!

Thank you SO VERY MUCH to Aistriu for hosting our event, not kicking us out for being corny and in general just being FANTASTIC HOSTS!

https://aistriu.com/

Thank you SO VERY MUCH to Tri856 for making sure we were invited and had plenty of space to show off and demo Active Release Techniques!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/706548002855527/

Thank you very much for placing us perfectly between two great physical therapy groups! We kept them from turning the opportunity to turn this into a physical therapist cage match (just kidding).

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!

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!

ELDOA METHOD Classes

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.

Runners, runner injuries, runner issues, and triathletes make up a very big part of our patient population and while some doctors offices don’t enjoy runners, we look forward to the challenge of getting someone feeling better with a goal in mind like a big race or a triathlon.
