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.

Piriformis Syndrome and Chiropractic Care

Piriformis Syndrome is a painful condition that occurs when the piriformis muscle is tight and intrudes upon the sciatic nerve in the buttocks.

Piriformis Syndrome is a painful condition that occurs when the small muscle located deep within the buttocks, known as the piriformis muscle, becomes tight and intrudes upon the sciatic nerve in the buttocks. Causing pain and tenderness and sometimes numbness in the buttocks, piriformis syndrome pain may also radiate down the sufferer’s leg, and in some cases, even into the calf. The piriformis muscle performs the essential function of rotating the leg outwards.

Unfortunately, once an individual has suffered from piriformis syndrome, the condition can recur periodically, usually brought on by too much exercise or sitting for a long time without stretching.

Whatever the initial cause, piriformis syndrome treatment options are vital in relieving the painful symptoms and healing the condition.

Hands on therapy, used with other types of treatment or on their own, these types of therapies are popular because of their effectiveness, as well as the fact they are drug-free ways to gain relief from the pain. Massage is a commonly used therapy for piriformis syndrome, as it helps increase blood flow to the area. The physical therapist can manipulate the area to relieve the tightness of the muscle.

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

Chiropractic care targets injuries and conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system. Piriformis syndrome causes pain and discomfort on the piriformis muscle, a small muscle located in in the buttocks. Through chiropractic care, a chiropractor can gradually relieve the symptoms of the condition and progressively restore an individual’s regular function.
