• Should I be concerned if my child is diagnosed with Osgood-Schlatter disease?

    09.23.2015 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Amy Henning, DO, OrthoVirginia

    As with many questions, the answer is, “it depends.” Osgood-Schlatter Disease is usually a temporary condition that causes swelling on an area of the upper tibia (shin bone) called the tibial tuberosity. During the rapid adolescent growth spurt this area is vulnerable to overuse as the kneecap tendon places continuous traction on the growing bone. Poor flexibility and activities involving jumping and stopping suddenly contribute to developing this condition. It is fine to be a part of activities as long as there is no limp. However, if limping occurs, rest from activity is recommended.

  • A Message from Darrel Young

    / Blog Posts Health and Wellness Redskins

    This #motivationalmonday spotlights Redskins FB Darrel Young and his commitment to one injured teammate.

    During the 2015 preseason opener, TE Niles Paul suffered every player’s worst nightmare- a season-ending ankle injury. Paul being put on the injury reserve list was both a blow to the team’s offensive strategy and a saddening loss of a good friend on the field.

    When Paul hit the turf and failed to get up, Young stayed by Paul’s side until he was carried away on a cart. The fullback has described his relationship with Paul as “more than football for me…Niles ... Read More

  • #ThrowbackThursday: Hail to the Redskins!

    / Blog Posts


    The famed Washington Redskins Marching Band has led sold-out crowds to the official team fight song “Hail to the Redskins”, for more than 80 years. Established on August 9,1937, the all-volunteer ensemble is only one of two officially sanctioned marching bands by an NFL team in existence today.

    George Preston Marshall, the Washington Redskins franchise founder, brought the Redskins to Washington, D.C., to entertain fans from the second they walked into the stadium to the time they left to go home. An innovator of what we now know as professional football today, he introduced game day elements such ... Read More

  • Knee Pain in Children and Adolescents

    / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Robert M. Dombrowski, MD, WOW Correspondent

    We see a number of young patients every year with Osgood-Schlatter syndrome because it is one of the most common causes of knee pain in children and teens, affecting 1 in 5 adolescents. 

    Osgood-Schlatter disease or syndrome (also known as tibial tubercle apophyseal traction injury) is a rupture of the growth plate at the tibial tuberosity. The syndrome may develop without trauma or other apparent cause, however, some studies report up to 50% of patients relate a history of precipitating trauma.

  • A New Season Begins

    / Blog Posts Redskins

    Julie Donaldson, WOW Correspondent 

    Dear WOW! Members,

         A new Season begins, time for new beginnings!!! What are you doing to get yours??? And are you ready?? 

         There are a lot of parallels I can draw within the NFL game, which I know we all love. 

         For one, In the first game of the season, we saw Tom Brady start not only a new season, but he did it in new light. As a man vindicated by a Federal Judge for his role in 'DelfateGate'.  

         Brady was named the 2015 SuperBowl MVP, but all of that was overshadowed this off-season ... Read More

  • Cheerleaders in the NFL

    09.02.2015 / Blog Posts

    Contrary to popular belief, not every NFL franchise has professional cheerleaders. As of 2014, seven teams in the NFL Association do not have cheerleader organizations. Cheerleaders are an added attraction that awards a team more coverage/airtime, popular local support and increased media image. Often, cheerleaders are pursuing careers while being dancers for their perspective squads. Cheerleaders do not just show their athletic ability on the field during football games but also willingness to serve their community. These members participate in practice, training camp, games, appearances, photo shoots, and charity events.

    NFL teams that do not have their own ... Read More
