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.

Natural Remedies for Joint Pain in the Elderly

According to the Arthritis Foundation, more than 45 million Americans have some form of arthritis. Though this potentially debilitating health condition can affect a person of any age, those over the age of 60 typically feel its effects the most.

The term itself is a bit misleading, as arthritis, in fact comprises a vast range of medical issues that affect the body’s joints. Nevertheless, when most people hear the word, they associate it with the more prevalent subtype osteoarthritis (OA), otherwise referred to as degenerative joint disease.

If your loved one has been diagnosed with arthritis, you have probably witnessed them struggle with simple daily, activities like walking, climbing stairs, and even brushing their teeth. All of these actions require joint movement (at the knees and elbows). Those suffering from advanced stages of the disease tend to require assistance when performing these tasks.

Although there is no cure for arthritis, a number of treatments exist for the affliction. Painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications are typically prescribed to ease the discomfort patients feel, but there are also a number of natural alternatives you can try to promote joint health and slow the progression of arthritis.

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

Joint pain is a common symptom of arthritis, a condition which generally begins to develop in older adults. Degenerative changes in the body are often inevitable, however, several precautions can be followed to slow down the process without needing medication in the future.
