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%.

OMG! A representative from Medx called me back and misrepresented herself saying, "I am with Los Alamitos Colorectal Surgerical".  I immediately corrected her and told her she was misrepresenting herself as she is with Medx.  She tried to correct herself and I told her again she was misrepresenting herself.  I told her I wrote a Yelp review and they can read about it here.
MedX allows you to increase or decrease the weight being used by 2 pounds, whereas traditional equipment only allows five to ten pound increments. Why this is important is based on two fundamental premises: 1) it is critical to fatigue the muscles within one to three minutes or four to eight repetitions, and 2) as a person gets stronger, the weights need to be increased to work the muscles more deeply each time. This is where the problem of large weight increments comes in. If you increase the weight too much, by five pounds or more, the muscle may fatigue sooner than the required one minute or four repetitions. Conversely, if you don’t add enough weight, because the increment is too large forcing you to keep it the same weight as the time before, you may perform too many repetitions and be on the machine longer than the three minute optimum time frame. That is why the small weight increment of two pounds that MedX offers is the most beneficial for effectively working your muscles.

Tyler grew up in Beulah, a small town in west-central North Dakota. He graduated from Beulah High School in 2007 where he was a 3-sport athlete competing in football, basketball, and track & field. His inspiration for becoming a physical therapist came through the process of re-habbing personal injuries to get back to playing the games he loved. Physical Therapy also provided a unique blend of skills that Tyler enjoys – including teaching and problem solving – traits he undoubtedly picked up from his mom (a teacher) and his dad (an engineer).
Cams on strength training equipment need to support the strength curves in the body. The cams on most equipment are incorrect in this regard. On the MedX Lumbar Extension machine, for example, the cam/strength curve ratio is 1.4 to 1. That means that a normal lumbar muscle should be 1.4 times stronger in the flexed position than in the extended position. For example, if we put 100 pounds on the machine, then at the beginning of the movement you would be pushing 100 pounds. As you moved through the full range of motion to the fully extended position, the cam would be moving so that the weight would continue to lighten so that at the end of the movement that 100 pounds would have smoothly lightened to 71.4 pounds. Each muscle has a different natural strength curve so each piece of equipment should have a different cam. For example, if you put 140 pounds on the Leg Extension machine it would start at 120 pounds in the fully flexed position, increase to 150 pounds within the first fifty degrees, and then it would decrease to less than 50 pounds in the fully extended position. Each machine needs to be properly calibrated and designed to accommodate the muscle group it is targeting.

Transporting work comp patients to and from medical visits, PT, IMEs, hearings and the like is a big business – big for worker’s comp that is. At first blush, it looks like a perfect opportunity for Lyft and Uber (L/U)- they’ve got a gazillion drivers everywhere, a great service model, and they are much less expensive than the traditional work comp transportation services. In fact, […]

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]

The latest and the most demonized expression in the English language, surpassing hate and racist is --”White Supremacy”. Well someone or group has to be supreme and that group is the whites of the world. As explained in detail in another section of this website, there is no such thing as equality. Someone or something has to be superior and someone or something has to be inferior. That is just such a simple fact that it needs no explanation.

There has been talk lately about the utilization of ride share apps such as Lyft and Uber. It is the opinion of Comp-X as well as colleagues in risk management and the legal community that these programs should be avoided at all costs. Although these apps have many short term advantages, they pose a risk to both the insurance carrier and the claimant. Below are […]

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.
"Within my life, I've accomplished 50 things; any one of which others would give anything to have done once. I've been the length of the Congo, Nile and Amazon. I've captured adult crocodiles and African elephants. I've invented a camera mount so steady you can use it from a helicopter flying in a whirlwind, and the picture will be in focus. I've run a jeep into a tree at 60 miles per hour. I've been bitten by poisonous snakes 24 times, and hundreds of times by non-poisonous snakes. I've survived a couple of plane crashes, that weren't my fault, was chewed up by a lion and a myriad of other cats, was shot six times, axed once and stabbed on occasion. I've killed at least 600 elephants and 73 men and I'm more sorry for the elephants!"
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.

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,
The Medical Lumbar Extension Machine is the only computerised technology capable of isolating the lumbar extensor or core-stabilising spinal muscles. This very important function allows these muscles to be objectively tested for strength and then compared to normal strength values for the population of the same age group, height, weight and age of the individual. The medical machine is then able to be used as an exact, safe, strengthening tool which monitors and measures the lumbar extensor muscle activity during the exercise phase.
Price – PENDING – This line is being sold as a set only. Condition is Good to Fair. PLEASE NOTE:  Some machines have scratches on the frames and possibly missing some shields. These are 100% operational and functional – cosmetically they are in fair condition. This line would be perfect for someone who is looking for a core set and can live with some scratches (some touch up paint would help).  Price is “negotiable” and open to offers.  We have not seen a full line come onto the market in a while so we expect this line to sale quickly.

Many companies have "Low Back" exercise machines that claim to strengthen the back. Clinical research has proven that these machines actually strengthen the hamstrings and gluteus muscles. A controlled study done by the University of Florida showed 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, although their hamstring and gluteus muscles did improve significantly.

During that time, whores, gunfighters, thieves and general riff-raff of every sort migrated to Seminole. The jail could not hope to hold them, so they were chained like animals to pieces of pipe driven into the ground. Everyone with common sense carried a gun and they were often used. My father owned a double-barrel, ten-gauge shotgun pistol the Chief of Police had taken from a hoodlum to give to him. In my early teens, the same Chief of Police called me to his office to issue me a permit to carry a concealed weapon. He said, 'I know you have a pistol. I know you need it. and in the likely event you have to use it, it will be better if it's legal.'

Jones didn’t respond to a request for comment from Splinter about whether he’ll hold any actual campaign events. Hanson, meanwhile, is still pressuring the Illinois Republican Party to consider publicizing the fact that people shouldn’t vote for him. “They said they’re not going to be participating in this race,” he said. “I’ve asked them point blank if they’d be investing resources, whether it was money or people or mailers, to let voters know they shouldn’t vote for Jones, and they said ‘No, not at this time.’ I think they’re writing this district off as a lost cause.”
