For many the biggest benefit of strength training is to lessen the likelihood of injury and the pain that comes with it. The trouble is exercise for some can cause injury, or exacerbate an already aggravating condition. That can be caused by too much exercise, repetitive use injuries. These can take years to become evident. One of trainers, Kyle Kloor, has had two rotator cuff operations as a result of years of doing too many shoulder exercises. He cannot even do a conventional overhead press, but he is able to work out with over 300 pounds using the MedX overhead press because of its unique design. His shoulders are stronger than ever.
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.
MedX has between 0 and 5% friction in it while traditional equipment has up to 30%. What that means to you is, 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 the positive and negative phases. 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. That’s a difference of 60 pounds! With that kind of difference, your muscles have ample opportunity to recover during the negative phase, which means that you will be unable to effectively fatigue the muscles and subsequently will not get the most benefit from your workout. The amount of friction plays a vital role in the process of improving your strength and changing the shape of your body.
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.
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. With more than 75 published articles in peer-reviewed journals, the proof lies in both the research and the testimonials of thousands of people around the world.

The Neck & Back Medical Center is one of only a handful of clinics in Southern California that offers MedX lumbar and cervical medical evaluation and treatment. Our state–of–the–art computerized MedX medical testing and strengthening equipment is used to test then treat patients with neck and/or low back pain as well as limited range of motion resulting from long-term pain and dysfunction. The benefit of the MedX machine is that it can isolate the deep muscles of the lumbar spine. MedX rehabilitation machines are precisely adjusted to each individual patient during the first therapy session. The back or neck muscles are gradually strengthened leading to long- term success for the patient.

Hanson, who describes himself as “center-left” on most issues, is also uninspired by Lipinski, who has held his seat since 2005. Hanson speculates that Lipinksi has mainly held on so long because his father held the seat before him. (Lipinski is best known as being a conservative, anti-abortion Democrat and narrowly won his own primary over Marie Newman, a businesswoman.)

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.

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.

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.
A study by Dr. Brian Nelson from Minneapolis, MN, reflects how these results can be achieved. 935 patients were involved in the study. A majority of these patients suffered from chronic back pain (pain over a period of more than six months) and were previously unsuccessful with traditional therapy. After 18 sessions the success rate of MedX therapy strengthened 85% of patients’ previously weak lumbar muscles, with average strength gains of 63.91%.
Have you ever wondered why old injuries flare up so easily? One wrong slip, twist or fall can quickly aggravate an old wound. Wouldn’t it be nice to expect the unexpected and be stronger than before? Wouldn’t it be nice to have the lifestyle you desire, knowing that your body will not only endure daily activities, but flourish? Well, you can, and a great place to start is by building strong core muscles that stabilize the spine and pelvis. We have some new state of the art equipment that will help you do just that.
Biomechanics precision and low-friction make Medx state-of-art. Engineering excellence and quality components mean that Medx equipment requires minimum maintenance. Included: Core lumbar strength, CORE torso rotation, CORE ab isolator, CORE stretch, chest press, knee ext, prone leg curl, leg press, lateral raise, overhead press, pullover, torso arm and row.

MedX is the brain child of legendary fitness visionary Arthur Jones, who founded the Nautilus line of equipment that we already carry in Vertex Fitness. In 1986, he founded MedX as a way to expand on his work testing human strength, endurance and range of motion. In conjunction with the independent research teams at the University of Florida, MedX created their medical Lumbar Extension machine, which has been used by thousands to reduce back pain and increase function.

Jones also promotes white nationalism. His website has a page called “Flags of Conflict,” where he calls the Confederate flag a “symbol of White pride and White resistance.” Next to a photo of the Mexican flag, the site says  “This is the flag of Mexico. This is a nation whose leaders believe they can reconquer the American Southwest, by flooding our country with millions of illegal aliens. And, their plan is working.” Text next to an LGBT rainbow flag says, “This is a flag that represents an attack on traditional Christian morality and religious freedom.”
Jones was born on January 1, 1948 in Beloit, Wisconsin. In 1969 he joined the army and served one year in Vietnam. He then attended the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater, where he majored in journalism and political science. While there, he was a member of Young Republicans, Young Americans for Freedom, Republicans for Wallace, and Republican National Committee.

Faith has always had a passion for helping people, so pursuing a career in physical therapy seemed like the perfect fit. Members of her immediate family have received a hip replacement and back surgery and attended physical therapy afterwards. She had developed a strong interest in the RehabAuthority Clinic specifically while was a student along with her brother receiving physical therapy for back pain from a local RehabAuthority Clinic. After seeing the success and progress her brother had made from therapy, she started to develop a passion for RehabAuthority’s core values and their emphasis on excellent patient care.
Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems or injuries make it difficult to move around and perform everyday tasks. It helps you gain strength, improve flexibility and feel less pain. It also helps improve your fitness level and endurance. Physical therapy can help with recovery after surgeries as well. Physical therapy may be used alone or with other treatments. You do not need a referral from your doctor to attend physical therapy, unless your insurance requires it.
