On Sunday, the Washington Redskins recorded their first victory of the season on their longest road trip of the season. Down 14-0 early against the Oakland Raiders, the Redskins remained resilient scoring 24 unanswered points in a 24-14 victory. It was the team’s most complete performance of the season.
The much-maligned defense had its best performance to date, sacking Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn seven times, holding their offense to under 300 total yards and David Amerson recorded the unit’s third touchdown of the season with a 45-yard interception return for a ... Read More

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
