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.

Pain along the pelvis and groin region is known as osteitis pubis. Osteitis pubis develops through the inflammation of the pubic symphysis, or the joints of the pelvic bones found at the front of the pelvis.

The pubic symphysis is a thin joint which generally provides very minimal motion. The joint retains the two sides of the pelvis at the front, where they connect at the sacrum in the rear side of the pelvis.

Osteitis Pubis Symptoms

Osteitis pubis is commonly characterized by pain at the front part of the pelvis. Other causes like strain or sprain, are frequently confused and diagnosed as osteitis pubis. When many patients report symptoms that are debilitating on one side, the pain happens in the center of the pelvis. Indicators of osteitis pubis may include fatigue and limping.

Osteitis Pubis Causes

For a number of patients, the pubic symphysis itself can become inflamed and irritated, causing the symptoms of osteitis pubis. Common causes of osteitis pubis comprise of trauma or injury from accidents; pregnancy; abdominal or gynecologic interventions; and sports injuries.

Osteitis pubis is named after the inflammation of the pubic symphysis which causes various levels of lower abdominal, pelvic, and groin pain. Symptoms of osteitis pubis include discomfort and pain when engaging in physical activities, and loss of flexibility. A variety of causes can cause osteitis pubis. Fortunately, rest alone can help treat this dilemma.

Osteitis Pubis Diagnosis

Diagnosis of osteitis pubis generally involves x-rays that demonstrate an irregular pubic symphysis with sclerotic, or thick, bone shortages as a consequence of chronic inflammation. An MRI test is usually not required, but it helps show the swelling of the bone and the joint.

Further tests may be performed to ensure there is no infection in the bone that could also be causing symptoms like osteitis pubis. This complication is more of an issue for those patients who’ve had recent surgery or for people who are inclined to suffer from illnesses.

Osteitis Pubis Management

The recommended treatment for osteitis pubis is rest. Since inflammation is a problem, the body frequently requires the joint to be able to heal correctly to rest. Other rehabilitation, however, includes:


An important treatment for osteitis pubis is rest since this will permit the extreme inflammation in the pelvis and groin to decrease. For most patients, rest alone is the only treatment necessary due to their osteitis pubis. A cane or crutches may offer extra aid if the pain is severe.

Ice and Heat

Ice packs and heating pads are among the most frequently used remedies for inflammation. Be sure to follow the instructions of your healthcare professional before utilizing ice and heat.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a well known, alternative treatment choice for osteitis pubis. A doctor of chiropractic, or physician, will use a variety of methods and treatment procedures, to help restore strength, mobility, and flexibility whilst remainder is required to subside the debilitating symptoms. Chiropractic care may help fix any misalignments which may be causing pain and discomfort. Rehabilitation can speed up the recovery process

Drugs and/or Medications

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and/or medicines, commonly referred to as NSAIDs, are frequent prescriptions provided for individuals with hip pain caused by problems like arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis.

Treatment of osteitis pubis may take a while to completely relieve the debilitating symptoms. Although attempts to cure osteitis pubis using injections are tested, the use of drugs and/or medications is not proven to be better compared to the treatment options listed previously.

Surgical interventions are generally not necessary for individuals with osteitis pubis. The reach of our information is limited to spinal injuries as well as to chiropractic and conditions. To discuss the subject matter, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at 915-850-0900 .

Back pain is the most prevalent cause of disability worldwide and the second most common reason for doctor office visits, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections. Approximately 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at least once throughout their life. The spine is a complex structure made up of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles, among other soft tissues. Because of this, injuries of the aggravated conditions, such as herniated discs, can eventually lead to symptoms of back pain. Sports injuries or automobile accident injuries are often the most frequent cause of back pain, however, sometimes the simplest of movements can have painful results. Fortunately, alternative treatment options, such as chiropractic care, can help ease back pain through the use of spinal adjustments and manual manipulations, ultimately improving pain relief.
