Our approach is very powerful and we have thousands of patients living their lives pain free to prove it. Many of our successful patients had tried physical therapy, chiropractic, epidurals and other pain management techniques in the past and did not achieve the results they had hoped for. After receiving care from The Center For Total Back Care they are pain free and back to the activities they love but were unable to perform in the past.
We create a culture of health in which everyone is trusted and respected for the expertise they bring, where openness and experimentation is the norm, people have personal ownership of health, individual stories have a global impact, and the patient voice and choice is part of all stakeholder decisions. We call our way of seeing each other and the health care world, Everyone Included™.

Jones traveled and 'adventured' widely, occasionally with friend and fellow adventurer Roy Pinney (Jones's cameraman for a syndicated TV series called Wild Cargo), setting up camp for two years or so at a time in different places such as Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and Mexico City. His motto was "younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles."[This quote needs a citation] Jones's Lake Helen, Florida, Nautilus building was the home of Gomek, an 18-foot salt water crocodile that Jones was trying to grow to world record size. He was also an aficionado of poisonous spiders and reptiles, a large collection of which was also housed in the Nautilus building. He ran a business that involved the importation of a variety of wild animals, ranging from tropical fish to snakes, parrots and monkeys. His daughter had a full-grown black panther that had free run of the house and even slept with her.[citation needed] He once retrofitted several of his jumbo jets in order to transport 63 baby elephants, that had been orphaned in Africa, to his Jumbo Lair compound in Florida. Jones filmed the entire operation for television and entitled it Operation Elephant.

Price – PENDING – This line is being sold as a set only. Condition is Good to Fair. PLEASE NOTE:  Some machines have scratches on the frames and possibly missing some shields. These are 100% operational and functional – cosmetically they are in fair condition. This line would be perfect for someone who is looking for a core set and can live with some scratches (some touch up paint would help).  Price is “negotiable” and open to offers.  We have not seen a full line come onto the market in a while so we expect this line to sale quickly.


A course of MedX treatment includes two types of testing. The first test is called the “Static Test” and the second is the “Dynamic Test”. The Static Test requires pushing backwards at seven different angles. The Dynamic Test requires pushing a specified weight repeatedly through a range of motion. The MedX machine itself will neither make you move where you hurt nor will it make you push harder than you feel comfortable. You will have total control of your effort. In other words, you move the machine – the machine does not move you.

On social issues, he says “Pro-Life–Yes. Homosexual Agenda–No!” He is against giving any money to Planned Parenthood and says the “homosexual movement” is an assault on the teachings of Christianity. He wants to impose term limits for all federal judges, partly because he says “in 32 states, the people voted against same-sex marriage. But in each case, federal judges ignored the wishes of the people and struck down state laws banning same-sex marriages.”
Transporting work comp patients to and from medical visits, PT, IMEs, hearings and the like is a big business – big for worker’s comp that is. At first blush, it looks like a perfect opportunity for Lyft and Uber (L/U)- they’ve got a gazillion drivers everywhere, a great service model, and they are much less expensive than the traditional work comp transportation services. In fact, […]

Rehabilitation providers worldwide have experienced outstanding outcomes using the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines. This is attributed to medical evidence that shows that the majority of patients with chronic spinal pain are significantly “deconditioned”. Weakness of the musculature of the spine can lead to many conditions such as herniated discs, facet syndrome, and degenerative joint disease. A strong spine provides a strong foundation that allows for healthy spaces between the vertebrae, which helps prevent spinal compression.”
