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.

Nutritional Treatments for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a common clinical syndrome of unknown cause characterized by widespread pain and muscle tenderness often accompanied by chronic fatigue, sleep disturbance, and depressed mood. There are many theories regarding possible causes of FMS, but no universally accepted explanation, making a rational approach to therapy difficult. It is conventionally treated by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and tricyclic antidepressant medications. Many patients prefer natural treatments, of which there are many, including aromatherapy, acupuncture, spiritual practices, oral supplementation and dietary modifications. Among these, a particular emphasis is placed on nutritional approaches, including both whole diet therapies and treatments based on isolated nutrients or supplements. This article will discuss nutritional treatments for fibromyalgia, with special attention to an intravenous vitamin-mineral mixture that is currently under investigation.

According to the National Fibromyalgia Research Association, symptoms of fibromyalgia tend to be alleviated when refined sugar, caffeine, alcohol, fried foods, red meat, and highly processed foods are eliminated or kept to a minimum, due to the potential these foods have to irritate muscles and stress the immune system. Many people reportedly benefit from eliminating all sugar in their diets for a month. This can appreciably reduce the craving for sweets, and allows the body to better manage its sugar intake when sugar is added back into the diet. Similarly, reducing caffeine and fried and processed fatty foods can improve cravings for these items in the same way. Eliminating certain food items like these not only contributes to a healthier overall diet and lifestyle, but also allows patients to see if the foods are contributing to their fibromyalgia symptoms.

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

Many researchers have studied a variety of treatments which could benefit and improve the symptoms of this painful condition, particularly, the benefits of a proper nutrition on individuals with fibromyalgia. For years, researchers have found a connection between nutritional deficiencies and the development of the condition, where certain eating habits may improve the symptoms.
