MedX™ – The Difference Maker
What is MedX™
MedX™ is a brand of advanced rehabilitative equipment designed specifically for the isolation and treatment of chronic back pain and dysfunction. Developed by Arthur Jones, the founder of Nautilus exercise equipment, MedX™ is considered the “Gold Standard” for treating and reducing back pain.
How does it work?
MedX™ treats and reduces chronic back pain and dysfunction through specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX™ Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines. Pressure on the spinal column causes pressure on nerve roots, which in turn, causes pain. MedX™ focuses on increasing strength, decreasing pressure on spine and nerve roots, ultimately decreasing pain. It also reforms inflexible scar tissue into a more normal functional scar. In simple terms:
- The spine is the weak link in the human body.
- The spine needs to be supported and protected for a long-term decrease in pain.
- Normal exercise and rehabilitation does little for spinal muscles:
- Without MedX™, bigger muscles do the work
- MedX™ provides the necessary isolation to target these small muscles
- The immediate result is the pumping out of inflammation/fluid, decrease in pain, increase in blood flow, and increased range of motion
Is it effective?
The Universities of Florida and San Diego as well as various orthopedic clinics around the world have published compelling research showing specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX™ Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines help people get better—even after multiple failed attempts at other forms of treatment. With more than 40 published articles in peer-reviewed journals, the proof lies in both this research and the testimonials of thousands of people around the world who have found relief from their pain through MedX™ rehabilitation.
If MedX™ is so effective, why don’t you see it in most physical therapy offices?
MedX™ equipment is expensive, technician dependent, and time consuming. That’s why most physical therapy offices do not offer this type of rehabilitation.
