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.

Types of Shoulder Fractures

See on Scoop.itSports Injuries

The shoulder consists of three bones which come together to form the joint: the humerus (the arm bone), the clavicle or collarbone, and the scapula at the glenoid (the shoulder blade). When an individual sustains a shoulder fracture, any of these three bones may be damaged or injured.

The majority of people who suffer from a fractured shoulder are diagnosed with a fracture of the proximal humerus. A proximal humerus fracture is an injury to the top of the humerus, or arm bone, which forms the ball of the ball-and-socket shoulder joint. Determining the appropriate treatment for the type of injury depends on the specific injury. 

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

Shoulder fractures most frequently involve a fracture to the proximal humerus. This type of fracture is characterized as an injury to the top of the arm bone, the humerus. These type of injuries can occur due to trauma from an injury or it could occur as a result of osteoporosis in the elderly population.
