kinesiology taping

Smart support: Dr. Sileo explains kinesiology taping

Kinesiology taping is a terrific tool trainers, therapists and chiropractors use to support the body and enhance movement. It is a precision technique, using a unique, stretchy and flexible athletic tape designed to mimic the properties of skin. My colleagues and I at Mark Kemenosh and Associates use it almost every day and find it very effective for temporary joint and muscle support, pain relief and to enhance posture and mobility.

Working From Home - Back Pain

Working from home can be a real pain. A plan to prevent pain and stiffness.

Technology is a godsend for those of us lucky enough to have kept our jobs during the pandemic. But working from home can leave joints and muscles aching by day’s end.

Since the COVID-19 crisis unfolded quickly, few had the opportunity to prepare for working from home, long-term. Many are making do with what’s on hand – working at the kitchen table, from a laptop or even the coffee table.

Since most of us do not have a fully equipped home office, problems crop up in the neck, back, shoulders, hips and other spots. Fortunately, relief comes down to common sense, making small adjustments to prevent trouble and taking action to keep your joints and muscle limber and healthy during the quarantine.

Can Vitamin D protect against respiratory illness?

Can Vitamin D protect against respiratory illness?

Vitamin D is a hot topic in microbiology. For good reason. We know it’s important to bone health. But we now know that vitamin D is active in many cells outside the skeleton – and can also influence genetics that affect cancer, infection and autoimmune disease.

A deficiency can make many problems worse, including cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, depression and diabetes. One recent study adds another to the list; respiratory infection. That is particularly noteworthy during a global pandemic caused by a respiratory virus.

Tiger Woods Golf Facts – The Masters – Chiropractic

Hey guys! Some updates from Dr. Gross! As the resident sports addict of the office, and with no live sports to discuss, I’ll take a look back in the history books. With The Masters having supposed to be played next week, here are some interesting Tiger Woods Masters stats:

– Jack Nicklaus has the most Masters titles with 6.

– Tiger Woods is second with 5, and is still playing!

– Tiger Woods won his first title in 1997 by a still record 12 strokes. That’s like Michael Phelps winning a 200m race by 5 seconds! Or the Eagles winning a game 80-0! (Yea, right…). This was also his first Masters as a professional, and he won, which has not been done since. It had only been done once before in the history of The Masters, dating back to 1933!
