Treatment of Running Syndromes

Treatment of Running Syndromes

Running syndromes occur in our patients who spend a lot of time running, whether for personal physical fitness or to train for an upcoming marathon. There are several types of running syndromes, including compartment syndrome and iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS). Both of these cause great pain to the patient, not just in their legs but their entire body. Dr. Kent Carlomagno offers patients chiropractic treatments to help with the pain and let them continue running.

Compartment syndrome occurs when there is extra pressure of muscles in the lower part of the leg. This leads to a cutoff of the blood supply and causes pain and swelling in the area. When patients come to see us who are known runners and have pain in the lower leg, in many instances they have compartment syndrome. Through therapeutic massage, we help return your leg muscles back to normal function.

ITBS is very common among runners as well, and considered an overuse injury. It happens when the ligaments in the thighs and shins become inflamed and too tight. With rest and proper chiropractic care, patients get relief from the pain from this condition and get help preventing it in the future. Call us at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center at 415-721-7520 to discuss your options for treatment of running syndromes.

Physician, Heals Thyself

Physician Heals Thyself: Luke 4:23 proverb.

The body is a wonderful machine and heals itself at its own rate. As a chiropractor, I realize I’m a catalyst in the structural reintegration of the joints within the body, and am dedicated to the health, healing, and wellness of each and every patient.

When the body can transmit the complete and correct healing messages, and one least expects healing to occur, it is then when healing takes place.
When you do everything necessary to hasten the healing response and the problem persists, you become dismayed. However, on one fine morning, you get up and find that the problem (ailment, discomfort, or pain) is no longer there, we call this a miracle. In actuality, it is the innate wisdom of the body expressing itself in healing when we least expect it.

Whether mental, physical, or emotional, pain and discomfort has a way of challenging us like nothing else in life. We may feel like we’ve hit a brick wall at times. But perseverance, a belief in the human body, and knowing that the body will heal when ready, is the message I’d like to convey to each and every patient at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center.

Yours in Good Health,

Dr. Kent G. Carlomagno

Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center Attendance at 50th Annual Reno Air Races

The 50th Annual National Championship Air Races were held on September 11 through September 15, 2013. The event, first organized by Bill Stead in the Nevada desert over 47 years ago, continues to be an annual event. The Reno Air Races event is held every September, and was only interrupted one year -- in 2001, when all United States aircraft were grounded following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Our own Dr. Kent Carlomagno attended the event. Again this year, he had the pleasure of adjusting/treating unlimited Air Race Pilot Thom Richard of the Precious Metal # 38 with chiropractic care.

“It is always an honor to see Thom and his crew working feverishy on their magnificent steed which ran both days marvelously and finished respectably in the Gold. Thom is a huge believer in chiropractic and has utilized it throughout his life with much success.”

For aviation enthusiasts in northern Nevada and around the world, the annual Reno air races have become a much-to-look-forward-to event. More than 200,000 spectators have been attracted to the event in the past ten years, as hundreds of aircraft fly high in the desert sky north of Reno. What’s more, over $80 million a year has been generated for the region’s economy, and Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center is proud to be a part of it.

Yours in Good Health,

Dr. Kent G. Carlomagno
