In the medical billing and receivable management industry, experience pays, literally.   Medx Medical Billing Service, Inc. has been maximizing the collections of our clients for more than 20 years from the same location in Long Beach, California.  We know that the physician practice is our greatest asset, so we work closely with physicians and their staff to ensure continuity of work flow. We are proud that our physician clients serve as our best referral sources.  Our combination of experienced and stable staff, knowledge of the healthcare industry, state of the art technology and close relationships with each practice have contributed to our successful results.  We refer to this as the Medx Approach.
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 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.
How it works: MedX enters into a lease with the physician or practice who prescribe the MedX Home Back Machine Program for its Workers Comp or Personal Injury patients. MedX handles the delivery of equipment to the patient's home and assigns a Personal Clinician to the patient. The Personal Clinician individually instructs the patient in their home on the proper use of equipment, completes outcome information and encourages the patient during the 90 days of treatment.
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.
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.
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™.

The low back muscles are usually under-developed after a back injury. Even people with no back pain can have a weak back, since those muscles aren't used during normal activity or exercise. The MedX isolates, evaluates, and strengthens the lumbar extensors like no other equipment or exercise can. Using MedX as little as once a week, many people double their lower back strength in just 10 weeks. With JMP and MedX you can say goodbye to back pain for good! Call us today for a free consultation to see if MedX is for you!

Jones often prided himself on being a generalist, something which he describes as a move away from the stubbornness and short-sightedness of 'specialists'. He attributed this in part to his upbringing in a family of physicians, as he found their attitudes toward medicine revolved around what they were taught and nothing else. One of his favorite quotes was Robert A. Heinlein's "specialization is for insects." He often cited that his observations gained from flying allowed him to understand the requirements for developing exercise machines. He believed in the competent man, that "a man should be able to put food on the table, build a house, tan a hide and deliver a baby."[This quote needs a citation]


PCSM offers both Medical Treatment and basic Personal Training with MedX Rehabilitation. Both Drs. Maryann and Michael Sheps are health care professionals who have been certified in musculoskeletal evaluation and rehabilitation in both lumbar spine (low back) and cervical spine (neck) through MedX at The University of Florida and The University of San Diego Medical School for Orthopedic Medicine. With these certifications, patients receive more than just a personal trainer: they receive extended knowledge of physiology and biomechanics. This translates into the ability to safely rehab a patient’s condition while taking them through a full course of exercises.
Comprehensive Physical Therapy at MedX includes therapy for miscellaneous injuries and accidents from auto, sports, hiking and falls. Therapy for spinal problems including general spine deconditioning, low back pain, bulging discs, pinches nerves, sciatica and neck pain. They provide therapy for aging concerns, disease processes and disabilities. MedX therapists also provide pre and post surgery therapy to help you prepare and return to life after surgery.
There a number of devices for of exposing your muscles to the demanding work that stimulate the muscles to become stronger: heavy rocks, bar bells, a variety of brands of strength training machines, elastic bands, and there is MedX rehabilitative exercise equipment. Researchers at MedX spent 100 million dollars developing the first piece of MedX exercise equipment, the lumbar machine. Their exercise equipment has numerous patents that other exercise machine manufactures have tried to copy. The difference is MedX does not cut the corners that cheaper imitations often do. The result is equipment that is unmatched in it smoothness and safety. This allows us to eliminate jerking movements that cause injury, and smooth movement means minimal momentum. Minimizing momentum increases the intensity which produces the results you are looking for. This makes MedX uniquely suited for high intensity training (H.I.T.).

Unlike other spine strengthening exercises that involve muscles in the arms, abdomen or legs, MedX targets only the muscles responsible for maintaining the alignment and anti-gravity properties of the spine. Poor spinal strength, alignment and compression due to spinal weakness lead to pain. Patients hoping to avoid surgery or those who have undergone surgeries for back and neck pain but are still suffering have been receiving positive results after only a few sessions with MedX.
In 2017, Jones declared his intent to run for the Republican nomination for Congress from Illinois's 3rd congressional district in 2018; he was the only declared candidate of that party. His candidacy was repudiated by the Illinois Republican Party[4][3] and the Republican National Committee. RNC spokesperson Michael Ahrens stated, "We condemn this candidate and his hateful rhetoric in the strongest possible terms".[11] Jones won the primary unopposed on March 20, 2018 and moved on to face Democratic incumbent Dan Lipinski in the general election. Following his primary victory, Republican party officials encouraged members not to vote for Jones.[12]
