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.

The Worst Exercises for the Rotator Cuff 

See on Scoop.itSports Injuries

Injuries from exercise can happen instantly or slowly. You don’t have to have a sudden traumatic injury to tear your rotator cuff.

A rotator cuff injury can develop gradually as a result of overuse or wear and tear with age. The rotator cuff is made up of a set of four small muscles: the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis. These muscles work together to lift, rotate, and stabilize the shoulder, ensuring that the humerus is held in place against the socket. Rotator cuff tears are very common shoulder injuries and repetitive motions or improper exercises can cause damage or injury if not corrected in time.

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

Exercising and stretching is a healthy way to maintain overall wellness but if the muscles become overworked or these are performed incorrectly, the constant and repetitive activities can damage or injure the muscles and tendons, such as the rotator cuff in the shoulder. The rotator cuff is in charge of allowing arm mobility and can therefore become injured if not cautious. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
