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.

Most Common Causes Behind Sciatica Symptoms

Sciatica is commonly characterized as mild to severe pain which radiates along a single or both legs, caused by the impingement or compression of the nerve roots in the lower back. Various types of injuries or conditions affecting the lumbar spine can result in symptoms of sciatica.

Sciatica is often referred to as radiculopathy, a medical term utilized to describe symptoms of pain, tingling sensations, numbness and weakness in the arms or legs as a result of nerve complications. If the nerve issues occur along the neck, it’s called a cervical radiculopathy. Because sciatica affects the lower back, however, it is called a lumbar radiculopathy.

Beginning at the back of the pelvis, or sacrum, the sciatic nerve is paired with five sets of nerve roots which then runs from the lower back, under the buttocks and down through the area of the hips and into each leg. Nerve roots are a great part of the body’s entire nervous system, functioning by transmitting pain and sensation to the different parts of the body. Radiculopathy can frequently develop when pressure is applied to the nerve roots as a result of an injury or condition, such as a herniated disc or a bone spur in the lumbar spine.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Sciatica, characterized by symptoms of pain, numbness and tingling sensations, is common alongside low back pain. While there are a variety of reasons behind back pain and sciatica symptoms, the most common causes include complications along the lumbar spine.
