The MedX line also includes the Cervical Extension, Rotary Neck and Rotary Torso, and Knee/Hamstring machines, which are used to produce specific and accurate tests of functional ability and as a tool in rehabilitative exercise. In addition to the medical exercise equipment that we are adding to the studio, MedX also offers a line of exercise machines which we have utilized since we opened in 2001, which incorporate their patented compound weight stack which produces less friction and enables several hundred levels of available resistance in increments of 2ft-lbs.

Increasing the strength of the spine provides a strong foundation that prevents spinal compression and injury. Research has demonstrated that the majority of patients with chronic back pain can avoid surgery through physical therapy. At Crabapple Physical therapy we have a proven tool to help fight back pain. The MedX Lumbar Extension Machine has the well-deserved reputation of being the Gold Standard for testing and treating low back pain and dysfunction because it isolates, evaluates, and strengthens the lumbar extensors like no other machine can.
MedX is the highest-quality and most researched fitness, sports and medical/rehabilitation equipment in existence. Developed in 1986 by Arthur Jones, founder of Nautilus, MedX is the leader in medical exercise technology. Its rehabilitation method is based on high intensity training and has a proven track record of to helping individuals who have not had success with other forms of treatment.Under the supervision of our MedX Certified trainers, patients safely perform short, single sets of exercises with maximum intensity: isolating and strengthening muscles in the back and neck. PCSM’s facility has recently expanded to include MedX Super Slow consisting of 12 stations for core exercise and entire body rehabilitation. With over 15 years of research, MedX is recognized as the highest standard for treating and reducing chronic back pain including, degenerative joint disease, spinal stenosis, and individuals who are recuperating from back injuries.
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.
“Morally reprehensible, that is the most important part,” Mcsweeney told me. “It’s just a disaster. This guy is a complete jackass, a complete nutcase, and doesn’t represent anything from the party that we’re all part of. It’s just absolutely necessary to make sure the people know that this guy is a fraud, a nutcase, a loser, and should be shunned, and hopefully gets zero votes except for his own pitiful vote.”
"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."
This Feb. 2, 2018 file photo from a video frame grab shows Arthur Jones, a Holocaust denier and Nazi sympathizer, who got onto November's ballot as a Republican congressional candidate when the state GOP failed to put forward another candidate in the safely Democratic district. Jones was defeated by incumbent Rep. Dan Lipinski in Tuesday's midterm election but managed to win 56,000 votes.(Photo: Marcus DiPaola, AP)
Underlying the inaction against Jones is a widespread belief that neither he — nor any Republican — has a chance of winning against Lipinski in November in the solidly Democratic district. Other Republicans have pointed to partisan gerrymandering as a barrier to recruiting viable GOP candidates in the 3rd District. Still, the party needed only 603 signatures to run someone against Jones in the first place and U.S. law does not require candidates to live in the congressional district for which they are running.
