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.

Posture and Shoulder Tendonitis

See on Scoop.itSports Injuries

Tendons are the fibrous band-like tissues that connect the muscle to bone. Tendonitis, or the inflammation and swelling of a tendon due to irritation, causes symptoms of pain and tenderness, restricting joint motion and creating muscle fatigue. Injury from an accident or repetitive overuse is the most common cause for tendonitis in the shoulder but recently, poor posture has been linked to being a risk factor for musculoskeletal pain.

Bad posture, such as slouching, pulls the shoulders forward. Correcting poor upper body posture can avoid and alleviate the pain and limited function associated with shoulder tendonitis. 

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

The average American spends extended amounts of time sitting at a computer. The repetitive motions and habits of computer work can often lead to muscle imbalances, poor posture, and eventually tendonitis. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
