What is the FAST™ Technique?
FAST, which stands for fasciotomy and surgical tenotomy, is a new, non-operative, FDA-approved treatment option for patients with chronic tendinopathies. At Commonwealth, we’ve used this technique to successfully treat patients with tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, as well as tendinitis in the kneecap, rotator cuff and Achilles tendon.
Who is a good candidate for the FAST procedure?
Anyone who has had tendinitis for more than three months is a good candidate. In addition, anyone who has failed more conservative measures such as therapy or cortisone injections for their tendinitis symptoms should ... Read More

Despite being competitive in the waning minutes of Sunday’s game, the Washington Redskins tasted bitter defeat once again, this time by the score of 27-20 to the Detroit Lions. Going into the game, the Redskins were riding a 21-game home winning streak against the Lions.
The defensive had its most stout performance to date, limiting the Lions to only 63 rushing yards and allowing only 31 percent of third downs to be converted. In the red zone, the secondary held quarterback Matthew Stafford in check as the former No. 1 overall pick connected on only two of his 10 ... Read More

With a family of 6, I rarely have leftover fruit, but today I magically found a lonely ripe mango sitting on my counter. Instead of throwing it in a smoothie (my most favorite thing to do), I decided to experiment with its sweet flavor and create a cucumber mint salad. The mint creates a refreshing smack that you typically wouldn’t associate with mango, but the cucumber, lime and strawberry pull it together perfectly!
1 very large cucumber
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 ripe mango
½ lime ... Read More

For the second straight week the Washington Redskins fell behind early, this time 24-0 at halftime to the Green Bay Packers before ultimately losing 38-20. Quarterback Robert Griffin III led a valiant comeback attempt in the second half, but the lead was insurmountable with time winding down.
Defensively, the Redskins struggled to contain Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers who threw for a career-high 480 yards and four touchdowns. Rodgers kept the defense off-balance all game and it opened up their rushing attack as running back James Starks had 132 yards and a touchdowns. On offense, the unit only got three first ...
