ZERO STARS!  MEDX turned us over for collection without ever sending us a single billing statement, letter requesting payment, or attempting to contact us, even though we had insurance. When we were contacted several years after our daughter's leukemia treatment by the collection agency MEDX uses, we repeatedly asked for documentation such as date & description of service, provider identity, billing statements and nothing was ever provided. 4 years later an almost $2000 lien shows up on our credit report. All efforts to obtain supporting information--even the name of the doctor/provider  have been unsuccessful, and we were told by the Vice President that we could either pay half the bill, or they will let it stay on our credit report.

The core muscles, which include the muscles of the back and abdomen, support the spine and hips. When these muscles atrophy or suffer an injury, back pain often results. Strong core muscles protect the spine and hips, relieving and preventing pain. MedX designs and manufactures the only FDA-registered Medical Strengthening Device in America, and it is designed specifically to strengthen the lumbar and cervical regions.

Jones received criticism when an article came out in the Oak Lawn Patch on February 29, 2012, in which he commented that "the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews. It's the blackest lie in history."[4][5] According to the same article, Jones participated in the Nazis' 1978 march in Chicago and "neither denies nor repudiates" having had been affiliated with the neo-Nazi Party, although he said he votes Republican "90 percent of the time."[4]

Manual wheelchairs come in many different varieties depending upon the user’s needs. There are standard folding chairs, sport wheelchairs, lightweight chairs, heavy duty chairs, reclining chairs, and transport chairs. A standard folding wheelchair is a good choice if you tire easily and can’t walk as far as you used to or are unable to walk but would like the option of arm propelling. These chairs have options such as desk vs. full arm styles, footrests vs. elevating leg rests, and seat height adjustment on some models.
Nate is very excited to continue combining his advanced orthopedic skills with RehabAuthority’s scientifically proven method in the treatment of back and neck rehabilitation to help patients “feel good again.” When Nate is not in the clinic treating patients, he is likely to be hiking. He has currently “bagged” about twelve peaks in the surrounding area of 12,000 ft. or higher. He is also an avid cyclist and trail runner. When he has some quiet time, he likes to fiddle around on the violin and piano.
The spine is subject to high mechanical stresses during daily life activities. Punctual forces prevailing at a single disk may be higher than 400kp. Without the support of the muscles, the spine can stand only forces of about 5kp. The spinal column is hence a rather instable part of the body and gets firm only due to the muscle corset. Physical rest weakens the spine and leads to a subtle “deconditioning”. Hence – especially for patients with chronic and refractory pain - strengthening of the back muscles is a pivotal therapeutic aim.
R. R. "Curley" Turner, a local barber, is held under $1,500 bond on the charge of mayhem. Turner, employed at City Barber Shop, cut the hair of the young son of city surgeon Dr. W. E. Jones. Turner is alleged to have angered the boy and when released from the barber chair, the youngster deliberately kicked Turner. In retaliaton, Turner is asserted to have slapped the child. Later, Dr. Jones appeared at the barber shop and a fight ensued. Following an exchange of blows, the two cliinched and Turner reportedly bit off a large portion of Jones' ear and spat it on the sidewalk. The physician's attorney filed charges in Peace Justice James W. Pipkin's court.
The MedX lumbar extension machine provides functional testing and rehabilitation of the lumbar spine. A unique method of stabilizing the pelvis, providing true isolation of the deep muscles of the lumbar spine(erector spinae and multifidus). Weakness in these muscle groups has been associated with chronic low back pain and susceptibility to future back injuries, pain and disability.
Hanson said he was cheered to learn that. “I don’t care about getting their support or that they tell their voters about my campaign as an alternative, because I’m independent and I want voters to be clear on that,” he told Splinter in an email. “They know that all I genuinely want from them is that they reach the voters they can reach to inform them about Jones and to vote for someone else. I hope they do something and follow through on that.”

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.”
MedX is recognized as the Gold Standard for treating and reducing chronic back pain and dysfunction through specific spinal strengthening. Over the last 15 years, the Universities of Florida and San Diego, along with various orthopedic clinics around the world, have published some of the most compelling research to date. This research shows that 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. It has since helped tens of thousands of people around the world reduce or eliminate their back pain.

The latest and the most demonized expression in the English language, surpassing hate and racist is --”White Supremacy”. Well someone or group has to be supreme and that group is the whites of the world. As explained in detail in another section of this website, there is no such thing as equality. Someone or something has to be superior and someone or something has to be inferior. That is just such a simple fact that it needs no explanation.
By 1984, approximately 4,700 Nautilus Fitness Centers covered the United States. Complete lines of the equipment were the choice in physical rehabilitation centers, professional sports teams training rooms, colleges, high schools, and private facilities, despite the belief of a large majority of weight-training experts that traditional training with free weights produced superior results.
In Illinois, meanwhile, the Republican Party shrugged off Arthur Jones, a candidate for the state’s 3rd Congressional district who boasted of his membership in the American Nazi Party. But Jones won the GOP primary, and now party officials, including ones who called Jones “morally reprehensible” and “a complete nutcase,” are scrambling to launch a write-in campaign. Jones’s campaign website features a section called “Holocaust?” in which he argues that the “idea that six million Jews, were killed by the National Socialist government of Germany, in World War II, is the biggest, blackest lie in history.”

But in a year when the left is energized in opposition to Trump, particularly by his policies toward minority groups and immigrants, and as the GOP tries to hang on to their majorities in Congress and state houses around the country, state party officials say they do not need racist fringe candidates running for office. None of these candidates is expected to win in the general election this fall, but they are going to give liberals on the hunt for examples of simmering neo-Nazi and neo-Confederate rhetoric at least five places to point.

MedX allows you to increase or decrease the weight being used by 2 pounds, whereas traditional equipment only allows five to ten pound increments. Why this is important is based on two fundamental premises: 1) it is critical to fatigue the muscles within one to three minutes or four to eight repetitions, and 2) as a person gets stronger, the weights need to be increased to work the muscles more deeply each time. This is where the problem of large weight increments comes in. If you increase the weight too much, by five pounds or more, the muscle may fatigue sooner than the required one minute or four repetitions. Conversely, if you don’t add enough weight, because the increment is too large forcing you to keep it the same weight as the time before, you may perform too many repetitions and be on the machine longer than the three minute optimum time frame. That is why the small weight increment of two pounds that MedX offers is the most beneficial for effectively working your muscles.

For efficient therapy 12-18 sessions - one or two per week - will be necessary. In 87% of all patients a significant pain reduction or even elimination could be obtained. About 96% of the patients treated in Munich stated, that they were satisfied with the therapy, subjective pain reduction was on average 57%. Even after 12 to 24 months after the therapy the attained pain reduction and strengthening effects were fully maintained. Compared to efficiency of conventional therapy in chronic back pain patients, these results are very promising.

Twenty years ago John Kelly, the owner of Austin Personal Training and New Orleans Fitness Trainers, had been living with chronic back pain for three years. Sitting was painful; he avoided long trips and going to the movies. Even at night school which would often last more than two hours he would stand the entire time. He did everything he could short of the recommended surgery to alleviate it; he walked, swam, stretched, and bought a new bed. About this time he began using the MedX Lumbar machine in a doctor's office twice a week and then once a week. Over several weeks his back finally became pain free. Studies show others have had similar results. For the last twenty years he has remained pain free except in rare times when he has strayed from a regime of regular exercise for his back. Others have had such profound improvement in the health of their lower back they have bought this $7000 piece of equipment for their home.

The Third Congressional District of Illinois has not been represented by a Republican since 1975, and few people, besides Mr. Jones, believe he has a chance of winning the general election in November. Daniel Lipinski, a Democrat, has represented the district in Congress since 2005, and before that it was represented by his father, Bill Lipinski, since 1993.
