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.

Sinding-Larsen-Johansson Syndrome

See on Scoop.itSports Injuries

Apophyses are growth plates made up of cartilage that can be found throughout a child’s body, functioning as attachment sites between muscles and tendons. 

When a young athlete participates in physical activities or sports where a specific set of muscles is constantly overused, such as the thigh muscles while running or jumping, the apophyses can weaken. The repetitive stretching of the apophysis can cause microscopic cracks in the cartilage growth plate, resulting in pain and inflammation. 

Sinding Larsen Johansson syndrome (SLJ) is a condition that occurs at the bottom of the kneecap due to the additional stress of the apophysis being repetitively stretched during physical activities or sports. This condition can also occur from a direct, blow, fall, or one sudden jump. 

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

Sinding Larsen Johansson syndrome (SLJ) is a condition affecting children younger than children affected with Osgood-Schlatter disease, generally between the ages of seven and thirteen, before adolescence. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
