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.

Returning to Slidell, Louisiana, Arthur borrowed $2,500 from his half sister to fund the fabrication of a resistance exercise machine he was attempting to build in the family's one-car garage. Arthur's 16-year-old son, Gary, designed an off-centered cam as part of the prototype, whose purpuose was to cause the resistance of the exercise to vary in intensity as the user worked the lever arm of the apparatus throughout it's full range of motion.

It's a little awkward, so we'll get straight to the point: This Monday we humbly ask you to defend Wikipedia's independence. We depend on donations averaging about $16.36, but 99% of our readers don't give. If everyone reading this gave $3, we could keep Wikipedia thriving for years to come. The price of your Monday coffee is all we need. When we made Wikipedia a non-profit, people warned us we'd regret it. But if Wikipedia became commercial, it would be a great loss to the world. Wikipedia is a place to learn, not a place for advertising. It unites all of us who love knowledge: contributors, readers and the donors who keep us thriving. The heart and soul of Wikipedia is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to reliable, neutral information. Please take a minute to help us keep Wikipedia growing. Thank you.

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.
MedX reduces the friction of traditional equipment from 30% to 0 and 5% friction. This makes a big difference in the ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ phases of resistance–when you push the weight up, and when you let it back down again.  If you had 100 pounds on a machine with 2% friction, you would be pushing 102 pounds during the positive phase of the movement and resisting 98 pounds during the negative phase. This is a four pound difference between pushing the weight up and letting it down. On traditional equipment, with 30% friction, that 100 pounds turns into you having to push 130 pounds during the positive phase and resisting 70 pounds during the negative phase, for a total difference of 60 pounds. That gives your muscles plenty of time to recover on the downswing, which severely impacts your ability to properly stimulate your muscles.
No Amnesty for Illegal Aliens: Don’t believe the Liberal media lies that there are 11 million illegal aliens in this country. They have been using that number for at least 10 years. The real number of illegal aliens is 20-30 million. And, they are costing us billions of dollars each year in free health care, subsidized housing, free education for their children; and spreading diseases and violent crime across the country.

This is not a good look for the Illinois Republican Party. It’s evidently too late for party officials to do anything except ask Jones to drop out, which he’s unlikely to do. “There is no room for Neo Nazis in American politics,” Gov. Bruce Rauner said Monday. Except there will be room for Jones on the GOP ballot. More bad news: The deadline passed for a primary election write-in candidate to register, though there is an opportunity for someone to run as a write-in or independent for the Nov. 6 general election. As for what to do in the primary, we hope Republican voters in the 3rd district are aware that Jones is a cretin and do not support him. The closer to zero votes he gets, the better.
As with everything that we bring to our clients, the MedX line of equipment is backed by a whole battery of independent scientific research that speak to its efficacy in increasing strength and improving function and quality of life. Arthur Jones’ work was validated by independent research teams at the School of Medicine of the University of Florida and San Diego, and he spent fourteen years in development of his equipment. He was trying to do something very specific–he wanted to develop a way to specifically strengthen the lower back, as he was seeing lots of people in strength training dealing with lower back pain. In order to target and strengthen these muscles specifically, he developed a patented pelvic restraint system. It was found that many machines that purported to work the lower back were actually targeting and strengthening the hamstrings and gluteus muscles instead. The University of Florida conducted a controlled study that found that people who worked out on two different “Low Back Machines” for 12 weeks actually gained no strength at all in their lumbar extensor muscles, but instead got stronger in their hamstring and gluteus muscles.

This method is highly researched and can help patients obtain full recovery through patient education and self-treatment.

Underlying the inaction against Jones is a widespread belief that neither he — nor any Republican — has a chance of winning against Lipinski in November in the solidly Democratic district. Other Republicans have pointed to partisan gerrymandering as a barrier to recruiting viable GOP candidates in the 3rd District. Still, the party needed only 603 signatures to run someone against Jones in the first place and U.S. law does not require candidates to live in the congressional district for which they are running.
