PUSH Fitness & Rehabiliation
Welcome !! PUSH-as-Rx ®™ is leading the field with laser focus supporting our youth sport programs. The PUSH-as-Rx ®™ System is a sport specific athletic program designed by a strength-agility coach and physiology doctor with a combined 40 years of experience working with extreme athletes. At its core, the program is the multidisciplinary study of reactive agility, body mechanics and extreme motion dynamics. Through continuous and detailed assessments of the athletes in motion and while under direct supervised stress loads, a clear quantitative picture of body dynamics emerges. Exposure to the biomechanical vulnerabilities are presented to our team. Immediately, we adjust our methods for our athletes in order to optimize performance. This highly adaptive system with continual dynamic adjustments has helped many of our athletes come back faster, stronger, and ready post injury while safely minimizing recovery times. Results demonstrate clear improved agility, speed, decreased reaction time with greatly improved postural-torque mechanics. PUSH-as-Rx ®™ offers specialized extreme performance enhancements to our athletes no matter the age.

Cohort Studies

Cohort Studies, is a study design where one or more people (called cohorts) are followed and subsequent status evaluations with respect to a disease or outcome are conducted to determine which participants exposure characteristics (risk factors) are associated. As the study is conducted, outcome from participants in each cohort is measured and relationships with specific characteristics determined.

Cohort Study:

Cohort studies usually observe large groups of individuals and record their exposure to certain risk factors to find clues as to the possible causes of disease. They can be prospective studies that gather data going forward, or retrospective cohort studies, which look at data already collected.
This type of research can also help identify social factors that influence health.

Cohort study consists of:

a. Identify people who are free of disease at the beginning of the study
b. Assemble cohorts of exposed and unexposed individuals
c. Follow cohorts for the development of incident outcomes
d. Compare the risks of incident outcomes in each cohort

Advantages

  1. Cheaper & easier than a randomized controlled trial (RCT)
  2. Standardization of criteria/outcome is possible
  3. Subjects can be matched, which limits the influence of confounding variables

Disadvantages

  1. Cohorts can be difficult to identify from confounding variables
  2. No randomization, which means that imbalances could exist
  3. Blinding/Masking is difficult
  4. Outcome of interest can take a long time to occur
