    To understand the restaurant landscape in a region as diverse as Northern Virginia is to appreciate the beauty of dichotomy. Dinner in farm country possesses all the sophistication as a meal inside the Beltway and a restaurant in Arlington deliberately creates a farmhouse aesthetic.Wherever the highway unfolds, food rules.

    Restaurants on this list put forth dishes that are, of course, wonderful and in line with the tenets of modern dining: seasonal and ingredient-focused.Value and atmosphere also contributed to rank. But it still came down to the food.

    For a list of the most worthy meals in ... Read More

    It’s that time of year where everyone goes crazy about….no, not basketball. They go crazy for fitness. At least that is what’s happening at the Gold’s Gym in Ashburn. Every year there is a contest called March Madness. The challenge is to take 25 classes in the month of March. That sounds daunting enough. But they have to be a combination of strength training, cardio, spin and aqua classes. And for someone like me who does a lot of strength training and very few ... Read More

    Tennis elbow isn't reserved for tennis players alone. Read more from the professionals at Commonwealth Orthopaedics. 

    One of the most common elbow problems is pain on the outside or lateral side of the elbow, which is called tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis in medical terms. 

    Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the origin of the forearm muscles that extend the wrist, with some inflammatory tissue underneath the muscle attachment at the elbow.

    AP Photo

    As an orthopedic surgeon at Commonwealth Orthopaedics, I am seeing a rise in the number of youth sports injuries while the age of these young athletes is decreasing. In particular, I am seeing more overuse injuries in younger kids. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), high school athletes alone account for an estimated two million injuries, 500,000 doctor visits, and 30,000 hospitalizations every year.

    That is why the AOSSM and the AAOS joined the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, the National ... Read More
