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.

Osgood-Schlatter Disease (Knee Pain)

See on Scoop.itSports Injuries

Osgood-Schlatter disease is a common cause of knee pain in growing adolescents. It is characterized as an inflammation of the patellar tendon, the area just below the knee where the tendon from the kneecap attaches to the shinbone or tibia. 

Osgood-Schlatter disease most frequently occurs during growth spurts since the bones, muscles, tendons, and other structures of the body are changing quickly. Also, participating in physical activity can add stress on the bones and muscles and therefore, children who participate in physical activity, especially running or jumping sports, are usually at a higher risk of developing this condition. 

In the majority of Osgood-Schlatter disease cases though, simple measures such as plenty of rest, over-the-counter medication, and stretches and exercise can help alleviate the symptoms of the condition and restore the affected individual’s regular lifestyle.

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

As children and adolescents grow, the structures of the body such as the bones, muscles, tendons, and other tissues begin to grow rapidly. Osgood-Schlatter disease is a condition caused when the patellar tendon becomes inflamed, most commonly occurring during growth spurts in children and adolescents.
