Don’t ignore shin splints

Don’t ignore shin splints

It’s the bane of runners, dancers and other athletes; sharp pain along the inside of the shins, the classic sign of shin splints.

Most every athlete knows the difference between good pain and bad. Shin splints are definitely in the latter category; a warning sign that should be taken seriously. The conditions that set up shin splints can lead to other injury. That’s why it’s important to get the opinion of a professional to get moving again, safely.

Getting ahead of the curve: dance and lordosis

Getting ahead of the curve: dance and lordosis

The spine has to support every other part of the body. When viewed from the side, it has normal curves that strengthen it and keep the weight of other body parts in balance. But sometimes, those curves can become exaggerated. When that happens in the lower back, it’s called lumbar lordosis, also known as swayback.

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.

Heel pain: the tip of the plantar fasciitis iceberg

Heel pain: the tip of the plantar fasciitis iceberg

The plantar fascia is a thick band of connective tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. When it gets inflamed, it typically causes heel pain, the classic symptom of plantar fasciitis (PF).

Anybody can get it, but runners are particularly susceptible. The fascia is stretched tight across the bottom of the foot and the repetitive stress of running can cause small tears. Over time, those tears can lead to long-term inflammation and heel pain.

Runner's Knee

The runner’s nemesis: IT band

Runners love to hate their IT bands. Trouble there can keep you off the road, the runner’s worst nightmare.

Short for iliotibial, the IT is a long band of connective tissue on the outside of each leg, running from hip to knee. When it gets inflamed, it usually causes pain on the outside of the knee. But it can also cause pain at the hip or lower back.

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.
