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.

Treatment Options for Piriformis Syndrome

The piriformis muscle, a small muscle located deep in the buttocks, plays the important role of rotating the legs outwards. Piriformis syndrome is a painful condition that occurs when the piriformis muscle becomes too tight, compressing the sciatic nerve that runs through the buttocks. Characterized by symptoms of pain, tenderness, and occasionally, numbness around the area of the buttocks, piriformis syndrome symptoms may also expand down an individual’s leg including the calf.

Piriformis syndrome can be caused by several reasons but there are two frequently notable causes for the condition. First, sitting for extended periods of time can cause the piriformis muscle to tighten. Second, an accident resulting in direct injury such as a fall or a sports-related injury can damage the piriformis muscle. Trauma to this muscle in the buttocks can cause the surrounding tissue to become inflamed and swollen, leading to compression and possible irritation of the sciatic nerve.

 Muscle spasms can also cause piriformis syndrome. Usually starting as a muscle strain, a muscle spasm can occur abruptly and cause pain. However, the source of muscle spasms can frequently be unknown. Regardless of the initial cause, being aware of your treatment options for piriformis syndrome is essential towards alleviating the painful symptoms and healing the condition. 

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

Piriformis syndrome, caused by muscle stiffness or irritation of the surrounding tissues of the piriformis muscle, can benefit greatly from chiropractive treatment. Although often treated through the use of medications, a chiropractor can naturally adjust and manipulate the spine or joints to loosen the tight muscles of the region and increase blood flow in order to heal the condition.
