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.

Ergonomics Center: The Human Body & Injury Prevention

Ergonomics is a scientific discipline that’s been in existence for many years. Keeping their work environments safe and efficient and traditionally concerned with factory workers, ergonomic professionals have expanded their work to include all types of workers from laborers to seniors to office workers & students.

In addition, it looks for means to adjust our environment to lower the risks of illness and harm, enhance productivity, and improve the caliber of our work life.

THE GOALS OF ERGONOMICS

The profession of ergonomics has two main concentrations (which frequently overlap):

1. Industrial ergonomics – occasionally called work-related biomechanics – is concerned with the physical aspects of work including force, position, and repetitive movements.

2. Human factors ergonomics looks as the psychological features of work like mental anxiety and decision-making.

The aims of ergonomics contain the following:

  • Reduce work-related injury and illness
  • Help include workers’ compensation costs for companies
  • Enhance the standard of work
  • Reduce absenteeism
  • Help companies comply with government regulations regarding work surroundings

Ergonomics professionals include:

  • Engineers
  • Security professionals
  • Industrial hygienists
  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Chiropractors
  • Occupational doctors

HOW ERGONOMICS ENHANCES WORK & SAFETY

The association between work injury and illness is old. It is even believed that Ancient Man concerned himself with developing the right tools that allowed for the efficiency and least amount of distress.

Now, we continue to look for ways to boost the relationship between our “tools” and our jobs. One means to do that is to look at the risk factors in the workplace. These are able to be divided into 3 areas: physical characteristics, environmental features, and workplace hazards.

1. PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF WORK:

  • Bearing
  • Drive
  • Repetition
  • Duration
  • Recovery time
  • Velocity/acceleration
  • Heavy exertion that is dynamic

2. SEGMENTAL VIBRATION ENVIRONMENTAL CHARACTERISTICS OF WORK:

  • Heat
  • Cold
  • Lighting
  • Sound
  • Entire body vibration

3. WORKPLACE DANGERS:

  • Physical pressure
  • Mental pressure
  • Workload
  • Hours (shifts, overtime)
  • Slips and falls
  • Fire
  • Exposure hazards (electrical, chemical, biological, radiation)
