In January 2018, he became the only Republican candidate for Illinois's 3rd congressional district, despite that party's repeated disapproval of him gaining this position, as well as the controversy around him being a candidate.[13][14]. Despite the GOP disavowing, 26.5 percent of voters still voted for him in the general election on November 6, 2018, as he lost by 47 points.

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.

MedX is a comprehensive rehabilitation program that incorporates the sports medicine approach to the treatment of chronic neck and back pain. The MedX machines are specially designed to provide the most effective means of isolating, safely testing, and directly strengthening the muscles in the low back and neck. The MedX program also incorporates general strength and fitness building activities that are supervised by a licensed physical therapist to ensure the patient's safety and progress. The primary goals of this program are to improve range of motion, improve muscle strength, decrease pain, and return the patient to normal function.
Injury can also be caused by doing the wrong type of exercises. Exercise done with great force, strain not only the muscles, but the joints and the connective tissue. In one single instant of great force one can sustain an injury that will heal. Those injuries often come back to haunt you. The injured joint is never quite the same as it was before the injury.

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.

As a three-sport athlete in high school, playing soccer, basketball, and track, then later joining the club lacrosse team during his undergraduate work, Wes was always interested in the human body and how it performs. Physical therapy became a big interest to him as he rehabilitated various injuries as an athlete. He started working as a physical therapy technician where he had the opportunity to absorb and learn as much as he could from the physical therapists he worked with.
Jed was raised in Salt Lake City, UT. Growing up, he always showed strong interest in the medical profession. In junior high and high school, he volunteered at a number of hospitals in Salt Lake where he gained invaluable experience that later resulted in a job as a Certified Nursing Assistant. After time working in the nursing field, he went on to work as a Physical Therapy Tech where he discovered an even deeper passion for physical therapy. Jed attended Brigham Young University-Idaho for his undergraduate degree in Biology, and then completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Missouri State University. He’s currently an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association, and loves helping his Patients return to pain-free living, and their normal routines and hobbies. When Jed is not in the clinic treating patients, he’s spending time with his family, and enjoys photography, boating, waterskiing, golfing, bowling, four-wheeling, and watching movies.
With most other equipment is it just not possible to move as smoothly because of all the friction. The result is a workout that is not as safe or as productive. The higher intensity allows us to get the job done more effectively and efficiently. There is no need to spend time dissipating energy on warm up sets. The equipment allows to safely and controlled momentum that increases intensity that produces the results.
The MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines have been clinically proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of chronic back and neck pain. Before MedX was introduced to the medical community there was never an effective way to isolate and strengthen the muscles of the spine. These machines provide the medical community with the first tools capable of producing specific and accurate testing of functional spinal strength, and the additional capability of providing the best source of rehabilitative exercise.

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.

A strong spine provides a stable foundation Spinal Rehabilitation that permits the right amount of space between the vertebrae. Injury, degeneration, weakness and poor posture all contribute to back pain and neck problems. To provide lasting relief from chronic neck and back pain, the structures of the spine must be reconditioned; Med-X physical therapy in Lakewood accomplishes this goal with isolated strengthening exercises.
“I would like to thank all the doctor’s assistants and nurses at IPPMC. They have helped me out the most of any different medical places I have been for my pain. They have done the best job explaining and treating my pain after a 19 year period. The best place I ever went for my pain management. I would suggest anybody come here and try it if you are dealing with pain. Thank you IPPMC.”

As a surgeon, I need streamlined communication to speed up my day. MEDX allows me to get information that I need about my patients right in the palm of my hand. 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.

For almost 30 years, I was misdiagnosed by doctors. I was told to prepare for my life as a disabled person. I couldn’t give up, so I went in search of answers on my own. It was a blessing when I found PDR. The doctors and staff found what was wrong in one visit. Two years later I am living a normal life. This has been a second chance I never thought I would have. Today I am 95% pain free and loving life again. I can never thank all of you enough.

The party has responded largely by either condemning and attempting to disavow far-right candidates while arguing that somewhere, a Democrat is doing something even more dastardly (praising anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, for example). Or they maintain complete radio silence about candidates who claim the party’s mantle despite openly embracing the worst of the alt-right.

"There is simply nothing better than MedX. Our patients love MedX and experience excellent results. I also own decompression equipment and we find our outcomes are much better with the combined with MedX versus decompression alone. Tony and FitStrength have provided us with excellent service, knowledge and commitment to helping our practice grow. I have worked with Tony for over 10 years and recommend giving him a call. Our MedX equipment is an intergral part of our success."
Arthur Jones is the legendary founder and developer of Nautilus exercise equipment. He pioneered the concept of high intensity, joint specific strength training and was the first to develop machines dedicated to each area of the body. He proved, through exhaustive research, that it is the most effective way to get results in the shortest period of time. When he evaluated the back extension machine, he found it did not do an adequate job of strengthening the back muscles. In 1972 he began what was to be fourteen years of research and development with the goal of designing the first meaningful tools for testing spinal function, including strength, muscular endurance, and ranges of motion. In 1986, he founded the MedX Corporation and after years of development and testing, validated by independent research teams at the University of Florida, perfected the medical lumbar extension machine. He subsequently developed the cervical extension machine providing the medical community with the first tools capable of producing specific and accurate tests of functional ability, as well as the finest source of rehabilitative exercise. These machines have helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world eliminate their back and neck pain. Arthur Jones devoted his life to educating people about the proper way to exercise and designing equipment best suited to his training methods.
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.
