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.

Workers Comp Establishes Division for Fraud Efforts

Since its establishment five months ago, the new in-house fraud unit at the Division of Workers Compensation has opened more than 40 investigations and hired additional fraud investigators to extend its reach.

Its a huge benefit to have a fraud unit that is 100 percent dedicated to workers compensation, said Commissioner of Workers Compensation Ryan Brannan. In-house investigators are more exposed to workers compensation issues, so they are aware of the latest schemes.

Teresa Carney, DWCs Director of System Monitoring and Oversight, said that in an effort to coordinate anti-fraud efforts, the unit reaches out to insurance carriers, district attorneys, fraud prevention groups, and DWC employees.

We cant do it alone, she said. Workers compensation fraud impacts all Texans, and we want to work with people who want to help stop workers compensation fraud. Many complaints come from injured employees or insurance carriers, but we can also be proactive by reviewing the claim or medical billing data already on hand or tap people in our Hearings Division or maybe a field office, who help in the workers compensation system every day.

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

While most cases of work-related injuries are successfully handled by the workers’ compensation program, several fraud efforts are attempted to benefit from the program on a regular basis. Fortunately, workers’ comp has established a division to specifically focus on these fraud efforts to ensure the program can focus on real cases.
