Injured Redskins turn to chiropractor to recover quickly – Richmond Times

Earlier this month a great article went up on the Richmond Times about how Washington Redskins players were turning to Chiropractic Medicine to return to the field quicker. We love great information about Chiropractic, Active Release Technique, and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue work! The best part of the story is that the Chiropractor helped him with his Achilles injuries, just like we do at our office here in South Jersey. We do a lot more than just low back pain and neck pain, check out the article below for more info.

From the article:

Running back Mack Brown watched Josh Doctson’s college film this offseason, seeing clips of his teammate toe tapping in the end zone, high pointing passes and running crisp routes rolled into five-minute YouTube videos.

Doctson tried TheraBands to fix his Achilles injury, he tried stretching it and none of it helped reclaim his health. Brown knew what Doctson could do for the Redskins’ offense this season, so he recommended Doctson see Dr. Craig, a chiropractor in the Ashburn area who Brown visits for body maintenance.

“I knew he really was in pain. I was like, ‘You really need to go to this doctor to get your body worked on,’” Brown said. “You get Doctson at 100 percent, he’s a problem for the league, one of the best receivers in the league. We need to get him back healthy.”

Dr Craig’s favorite prehabilitation exercise – Monster Walk with Theraband

I teach this exact exercise several times a day as well as a few variations almost on the daily since the basis of most of our patients are runners.  This exercise can never be done slowly enough, anyone can do this movement quickly but slow down and act like you have a hot cup of coffee in your hands.  Almost everyone does these exercises quickly and while there is nothing wrong with that, slower is almost always better.  Check out all the following videos on how to practice this excellent prehab movement for most runners struggling with “typical runner stuff”.

If you are a South Jersey runner struggling with pain and tenderness as we lead up to the big part of summer running season which is just ahead (Broad Street Run, Philly Rock N Roll Half, Chicago Marathon, Philly Half and Philly Marathon are all on the horizon) give us a call at 856.228.3100.

The development of STOP (Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention) Sports Injuries was initiated by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) in early 2007. Members of the Society’s Board of Directors, including STOP Sports Injuries co-campaign chair and renowned orthopaedic surgeon, James R. Andrews, MD, decided that the issue of overuse injuries in young athletes was becoming a critical issue for its members to address. The Board established a steering committee to investigate what types of activities and materials needed to be developed and in late 2009, the planning and fundraising efforts began in earnest with our renowned organizational partners, including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, SAFE Kids USA, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, and the Sports Physical Therapy Section. These organizations shared AOSSM’s concern about the increase in youth sports injuries and came together under the common goal to STOP Sports Injuries.

The comprehensive public outreach program focuses on the importance of sports safety-specifically relating to overuse and trauma injuries. The initiative not only raises awareness and provides education on injury reduction, but also highlights how playing safe and smart can enhance and extend a child’s athletic career, improve teamwork, reduce obesity rates and create a lifelong love of exercise and healthy activity. Our message underscores the problems of overuse and trauma and emphasizes the expertise of our coalition of experts.

NERD ALERT: ACUTE VS CHRONIC INJURIES AND REHAB METHODS – Chris Taylor – North Barbell Philly

Chris Taylor came to us on a referral from a Philly based Cross-Fit gym in 2014 to give us a try to see what we could do with his knee that sounded “like it had velcro inside of it”.  Chris was bound and determined to get this problem fixed even though he has seen an Orthopedic who stated it was probably just some arthritic changes and crepitus (joints that crack, pop, make noise without pain).  Fast forward into 2015 and he opens his own gym in Northern Philadelphia, right outside of Temple University, North Barbell.  In August of last year, Chris wrote this fantastic blog we highly recommend.

Article Title:  NERD ALERT: ACUTE VS CHRONIC INJURIES AND REHAB METHODS

Author:  Chris Taylor

Eccentric Loading, Ice Massage, Acute Pain, Chronic Pain, Tendinopathy (what happens when your tendonitis continues to be trouble), and so much more!

Don’t miss the shout out to Dr’s Mark, Andrew, and Craig at the bottom of the article as well.  While Chris worked hard on his own to fix his own knee and power lifting induced low back pain, we put him on a pretty good course to getting better.  We are so happy to work with patients at our office from all walks of life, not just athletes.  Give us a call if you have an injury you would like to see what Active Release, Chiropractic, and Corrective Exercise can help you with.
