    Diane was tired of sitting on the sidelines. Years of knee issues had resulted in painful bone-on-bone arthritis and left her unable to participate in all the activities she loved – hiking with her family, keeping up with her twin daughters, playing with her many nieces and nephews. “It was so bad, I could barely get up off the couch,” she says. Under the care of Commonwealth surgeon David Novak, MD, Diane tried everything she could to avoid surgery, including physical therapy and cortisone injections. But when conservative management failed, she knew she ... Read More

    While Valentine’s Day was last weekend, Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson will be sharing even more love next Saturday.

  • What Body Shape Am I?

    Brought to you by Today's Innovative Woman

    I have always chuckled at the answer, “I am round, round is a shape.”

    No two people are built exactly alike and that is what makes us special. Become familiar with your body type—knowledge is power and the tape measure is a necessary item in your style toolbox.

    Ladies are you average, petite or tall?

    Have you ever taken your true measurements?

    Where do you carry your weight— are you bigger on the top, bigger on the bottom, bigger in the middle? We all carry our weight somewhere on our frame ... Read More

  • The Hydration Equation

    02.15.2015 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Brought to you by Today's Innovative Woman

    Did you know that your body is comprised of over 70% water – not soda, coffee or tea, and if dehydrated you would probably fit inside a moderate sized capsule? Well maybe not a capsule but the 70% is true.

    Your body needs to be hydrated with water in order to rid it of toxins and other harmful waste that can damage cell activity.

    People who are not well hydrated may complain of such issues as fatigue, digestive disturbances and headaches as well as pimples, dry skin or dry hair.
