I don't need to worry about HIPAA violations at all. It's as easy to use as Facebook or Whatsapp, only fully encrypted, secure and faster. It makes me feel safe when I need to send information about patients peer-to-peer. Highly recommend MEDX as a HIPAA-Compliant solution.
This isn’t the first time an embarrassing candidate has sneaked onto a ballot. We remember the Republican loser in the Democratic-heavy 9th Congressional District who warned that frigid temperatures and tornadoes reflected God’s disdain for liberal Illinois politics. We’ve got other such crazy stories. There also have been smart, responsible Republicans who have run in Democratic districts and got creamed. Hoo boy, we have more respect for them than ever.

In order to do this, we allow each location the ability to offer different products, services and supplies based upon the local interests and needs of that market. We believe this model offer the best of both values: tailored products and services to each market along with a large and diverse product inventory available through our combined distribution network.

Racial animus helped fuel the rise of Donald Trump. Since the end of the civil rights movement and under Republican strategist Lee Atwater’s “Southern strategy” that used racism as an unstated cudgel against Democrats, the Republican Party itself has played a welcoming host to racial tensions and fears. Simultaneously, it has depicted itself, as conservative columnist Jeff Jacoby put it in 2012, as “the party of color-blind equality and “a party that doesn’t think with its skin.”
Provides resistance over a full range of isolated cervical motion, or over a selected limited range. Isometric testing may occur every 3° within a patient’s range of motion MedX software plots a strength curve to compare the patient’s strength and range of motion to established norms. Stored energy can be assessed and factored out at each angle tested.
Not to mention that racism is inherently anathema to minority votes. A critical rise in black turnout in Alabama’s Senate special election helped push Democrat Doug Jones over controversial Republican Roy Moore. One activist told the Atlantic that black voters were responding to “the resurgence of this white conservative overtly racist rhetoric.” Bad Republican candidates also depress Republican voting. In that Alabama election, thousands of voters — including many who supported Donald Trump in 2016 — simply didn’t show up.
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.
Jones won the party's nomination in March when he ran unopposed for an open seat in Illinois' Third Congressional District. The Republican Party failed to put up a candidate to run against Jones, believing the heavily Democratic district to be unwinnable. Jones will be facing incumbent Representative Dan Lipinksi in the general election this fall. 
Jones, who campaigned for the same seat in the 2016 primary, was removed from the ballot that year after the Illinois Republican Party found paperwork errors and filed a successful objection to his candidacy with the state Board of Elections. The GOP tried to do the same this election cycle, but Jones had cleaned up his paperwork. He also appears to have kept a low profile, collecting signatures to meet eligibility requirements by going door-to-door and then waiting until the Dec. 4, 2017, deadline to file. If only others had noticed.
"I've been broke more times than I care to count and I still made the Forbes Fortune list of the 400 richest by the mid-1980s. When I sold Nautilus Sports/Medical Industries in 1986, I owned a large farm located north of Ocala, Florida. The 350 acres of prime real estate housed the largest privately owned airport. including three Boeing 707 airliners and the largest exclusively owned collection of exotic wild animals. My menagerie consisted of 100 African Elephants, 4,000 crocodilians, three albino rhinos and Micky, my 400 pound pet gorilla."

Isometric testing may occur every 3 degrees within the patient’s range of motion. During the test, the software plots a strength curve that allows a comparison of the patient’s strength and range of motion to age and gender matched norms. It also has the ability to detect a lack of reasonable effort by the patient. Various reports can be generated for individual patients and selected patients groups or categories for outcome tracking purposes.

Jones — a Holocaust denier, anti-Semite, neo-Nazi and white supremacist — is running unopposed as a GOP candidate in a west suburban-based U.S. House race. That means any primary voter in the 3rd Congressional District who pulls a Republican ballot for the Illinois primary will see only Jones’ name listed. He’ll win the primary by default. The man who once dressed as a Nazi to march in Skokie will win a Republican primary.

MedX is a tool that isolates movement and provides a safe and effective environment in which to apply basic principles of progression and overload to combat and reverse the deconditioning effects of chronic low back pain. Providing a secure isolated environment reduces patients anxiety and apprehension during the movement and musculature re-activation phase of a rehabilitation program. This type of environment helps the patient develop and re-establish confidence in using their low back musculature. The human body adapts to disuse. If an area of the body is painful the neuromuscular system will learn new patterns of contraction to produce movement, thus alienating the injured muscle. This injured muscle then further atrophies and weakens, predisposing an individual to greater risk and severity or re-injury. Effective rehabilitation must prevent alienation, or re-educate the neuromuscular system properly.
James grew up on the family farm in the quaint town of Inkster, North Dakota where he was a 3-sport athlete throughout his high school career; competing in football, baseball, and basketball. During life on the farm, his father taught him the disciplines of sowing and reaping that continue to serve him well today in all aspects of his life. James would eventually be inspired to pursue a career in medicine by his mother and sister who are both Physical Therapists, and who would show him the gratification of helping people recover from pain or injury. After graduation, James went on to play college baseball for the University of Mary, and, to begin his formal studies. He then attended the University of North Dakota (UND) where he received his bachelor’s degree in Pre-Physical Therapy, with a Minor in Psychology. James went on to enroll in the university’s School of Medicine & Health Science where he earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. After completing two, nine-week clinical sessions in the fun, family-like atmosphere at RehabAuthority, James knew the company was a perfect fit to launch his PT career. He now practices out of the Homedale Clinic, and is highly motivated to help his Patients get back to enjoying their daily lives free from physical limitations.
In Virginia, the chair of the state GOP resigned earlier this month, reportedly because of alt-right leaning, pro-Confederate candidate Corey Stewart’s win in the Republican primary. But even Stewart had to disavow Wisconsin’s Paul Nehlen, who is running to replace Speaker Paul Ryan. Nehlen’s too racist for Twitter and even for Gab, the preferred social media platform of the alt-right. Meanwhile, a California Republican running for Congress has been making appearances on neo-Nazi podcasts and argues on his campaign website that “diversity” is a Jewish plot. (The California GOP has disavowed him.)

The 70-year-old Jones famously got on the ballot because no other Republicans bothered to run in the heavily Democratic district. Jones has been a perennial candidate for office, and ran for Congress a previous seven times, but he’s never been the only person on the primary ballot before. Upon winning his primary— in that no one else was around— he exulted to Politico that he’d “snookered” the local Republican establishment.

Arthur Jones, born in 1922, in Morrilton, Arkansas, was perhaps the most all-time controversial entrepreneur of strength training. Throughout his life, he rema...ined egocentric and opinionated and was, he said, "outraged" by ignorance. His father, mother, grandfather, and great-grandfather were practicing physicians,and his half-sister and half-brother were also medical doctors. He stated in his authorized biography, "Younger Women, Faster Airplanes, Bigger Crocodiles," written by John Szimansky,

Ryan was raised in the small town of Burley, ID. Having grown up in a family construction company, his father instilled in him the importance of a hard work ethic. This work ethic was applied not only to school but also sports. He had the privilege of being part of a state basketball champion team but unfortunately, he became sidelined due to a knee injury. From that injury he was introduced to physical therapy and got his first experience as to how beneficial conservative treatment can be. Since then he has furthered his passion for physical health and fitness by staying active in recreational weight lifting and competed in several bodybuilding competitions throughout the northwest. Since then he attended the College of Southern Idaho and Idaho State University where he obtained his undergraduate degree in Physical Education and completed his Doctorate of Physical (DPT) at the University of Jamestown in North Dakota in 2018. While attending the University of Jamestown he had the great opportunity to be a student physical therapist at two Rehab Authority clinics before he graduated. He is an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association and is excited to further is knowledge from the neck and back experts here at Rehab Authority. When Ryan isn’t in the clinic cracking jokes and treating patients you can find him spending time at the local gym or exploring the amazing outdoors that Idaho has to offer.
The patented Core 4-Way Neck is a bio-mechanically precise 4-way neck machine that trains the flexion and extension muscles of the neck to allow for improved range of motion. It both stretches and strengthens the cervical spinal muscles. This allows for decompression of the upper spine and promotes increased omni-directional strength and flexibility of the entire neck. The Core 4-Way Neck is based on the superior bio-technology of the MedX Medical Neck Extension machine now being used in spinal rehabilitation facilities around the world.
The ingenuity behind MedX’s success in helping patients become pain free and regain functionality is its ability to isolate the deep muscles of the spine during strengthening exercises. MedX equipment is designed to accurately test your low back and neck, identifying existing or potential problems. Precise measurements of range of motion, strength and endurance are then compared to established norms. This allows us to accurately assess your spine in a number of different ways and takes into consideration the individual needs of the patient. This leads to fewer flare ups of symptoms and a much easier rehabilitation process.

MedX’s data recording and processing software allows operators to safely and accurately determine a patient’s physical limitations and show improvements in neck and back strength. The software calculates accurate range of motion and muscle strength at numerous joint positions by factoring out torso mass, stored energy, tissue compression and/or joint elasticity, and a lack of reasonable effort by the patient. Reports can be generated showing comparisons between age-matched and/or gender-matched norms. MedX’s computerized reports offer physicians, therapists, patients, and their insurance company’s accurate, quantifiable data to use in determining a patient’s level of disability at the beginning of treatment, and their degree of improvement at the end of treatment. Improvements in isolated neck and lower back strength have been shown by extensive research to correlate with increased improvements in quality of life and increased function.

Illinois Republicans, meanwhile, seemed to struggle with how to respond to Jones: in July, Governor Bruce Rauner denounced his views but refused to suggest that anyone should vote for Lipinski instead. The National Republican Congressional Committee has said it won’t endorse Jones, and the state Republican party issued a statement saying that both the party and the country have “no place for Nazis like Arthur Jones,” adding, “We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office, including the 3rd Congressional District.”
