The MedX Lumbar Extension Machine has been extensively researched and studied at the University of Florida. Tests show remarkable increases in lasting strength with the use of this equipment. In fact, recently published scientific research dramatically validates the efficacy of MedX rehabilitation of chronic low back pain. A study published in the January 1999 edition of the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation showed that 35 or 38 patients recommended for spinal surgery were able to forego the surgery following 21 MedX sessions over a 10 to 12-week span. Although the study does not prove that increased strength prevents surgery, it does suggest that certain people can avoid surgery with proper spinal exercise therapy.
Not to mention that racism is inherently anathema to minority votes. A critical rise in black turnout in Alabama’s Senate special election helped push Democrat Doug Jones over controversial Republican Roy Moore. One activist told the Atlantic that black voters were responding to “the resurgence of this white conservative overtly racist rhetoric.” Bad Republican candidates also depress Republican voting. In that Alabama election, thousands of voters — including many who supported Donald Trump in 2016 — simply didn’t show up.

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.

Knowing that our staff like using their smartphones to communicate for work, I knew that I had to make sure that they were following HIPAA guidelines when doing so. We searched for apps that were providing this service and decided on MEDX to be our app to fulfill this need.  MEDX was chosen by our staff because of how easy it is to use and the features it contains. The staff was comfortable with the app because it was designed by professionals like themselves. As an administrator of the clinic, I felt comfortable with the admin portal and its permission controls. Further, being a multi unit practices with locations across Washington state, It has the ability to bridge our clinics together and communicate securely via the personal smartphone. This was an essential feature for our clinic. Overall, very impressive application, shores up a need, keeps our employees happy, and assures we are HIPAA-Compliant. Highly recommend MEDX as a mobile communication solution for healthcare.
MedX medical equipment is recognized as the "Gold Standard" for treating and reducing chronic back pain and dysfunction through specific spinal strengthening. Weakness of the musculature of the spine can lead to many conditions such as herniated discs, facet syndrome, and degenerative joint disease. It is recommended for post-surgical rehabilitation, the average "sprain/strain" injury, and anyone suffering from chronic or acute low back and neck pain.
After high school, Korey attended Pacific University of Oregon. He played collegiate baseball as a catcher and outfielder.  He received his Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Integrated Physiology.  Korey started at RehabAuthority shortly after graduation, working as a physical therapy technician. Gaining this knowledge and experience inspired him to further his studies in physical therapy.  He attended and graduated from Carrington College Boise with an associate degree in Physical Therapy Assisting. In addition, he scored a 100% on his National physical therapy exam! He started working at the Homedale clinic in July of 2016.

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.”


For efficient therapy 12-18 sessions - one or two per week - will be necessary. In 87% of all patients a significant pain reduction or even elimination could be obtained. About 96% of the patients treated in Munich stated, that they were satisfied with the therapy, subjective pain reduction was on average 57%. Even after 12 to 24 months after the therapy the attained pain reduction and strengthening effects were fully maintained. Compared to efficiency of conventional therapy in chronic back pain patients, these results are very promising.

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.
Wes grew up in Moorhead, Minnesota where he attended Moorhead Senior High School in the graduating class of 2010. After he attended and graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with his Bachelors of Arts in Biology in 2014, he attended the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, North Dakota. He graduated with his Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree in 2017.
Strong abs are vital to spinal support. The patented bio-mechanical design of the Core Ab Isolator provides the highest degree of isolation for abdominal muscles available. Unlike other ab machines, the Core Ab Isolator neutralizes hip flexor muscles and restricts arching in the base of the spine. This provides core abdominal muscle isolation, while eliminating the hazard of lower back discomfort. The result is a superior abdominal burn.
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.

You receive free fitness membership during physical therapy and a complimentary month after therapy is completed for most patients.
Hanson is 35 and an attorney in La Grange, a suburb of Chicago. His campaign website promises he’s running “the hardest working, most motivated, and sincerest write-in campaign ever launched for a seat in the United States House of Representatives.” While that might not be a measurable claim, he definitely has the only write-in campaign against an elderly racist running for Congress in Illinois.
Greg’s work experience includes outpatient orthopedics where he has achieved credentialing as a Cervical and Lumbar MedX evaluator, and Isernhagen certified functional capacity evaluator; in wound care where he certified as a Certified Wound Specialist (CWS) with the American Academy of Wound Management; and in geriatric rehabilition providing care in the Skilled Nursing Facility and Home Health Care settings.

Amber attended Northland Community and Technical College earning a seat in their Physical Therapy Assistant program. She received her Associates of Applied Science degree in 2018 graduating with honors. She was also presented with PTA student of the year and was her class representative that was nominated by the American Physical Therapy Association to be the Head Usher at the House of Delegates in 2017, Boston MA.

Hanson said he was cheered to learn that. “I don’t care about getting their support or that they tell their voters about my campaign as an alternative, because I’m independent and I want voters to be clear on that,” he told Splinter in an email. “They know that all I genuinely want from them is that they reach the voters they can reach to inform them about Jones and to vote for someone else. I hope they do something and follow through on that.”
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,
MedX applied the knowledge gained from its medical machines to the design of a full line of exercise-only machines. These machines incorporated MedX’s patented compound weight stack which produces less friction and enables several hundred levels of available resistance in increments of 2ft-lbs. This feature reduces user strain and, for the first time, made it possible for individuals to select the exact level of resistance required regardless of their strength.

Jones won the party's nomination in March when he ran unopposed for an open seat in Illinois' Third Congressional District. The Republican Party failed to put up a candidate to run against Jones, believing the heavily Democratic district to be unwinnable. Jones will be facing incumbent Representative Dan Lipinksi in the general election this fall. 
The patented Core 4-Way Neck is a bio-mechanically precise 4-way neck machine that trains the flexion and extension muscles of the neck to allow for improved range of motion. It both stretches and strengthens the cervical spinal muscles. This allows for decompression of the upper spine and promotes increased omni-directional strength and flexibility of the entire neck. The Core 4-Way Neck is based on the superior bio-technology of the MedX Medical Neck Extension machine now being used in spinal rehabilitation facilities around the world.
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.”
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. There are many devices and exercises which claim to strengthen the spine, but they have been disproved with scientific testing. The precision and isolation of MedX rehabilitation makes it far superior to conventional rehabilitation methods.
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.
ZERO STARS!  MEDX turned us over for collection without ever sending us a single billing statement, letter requesting payment, or attempting to contact us, even though we had insurance. When we were contacted several years after our daughter's leukemia treatment by the collection agency MEDX uses, we repeatedly asked for documentation such as date & description of service, provider identity, billing statements and nothing was ever provided. 4 years later an almost $2000 lien shows up on our credit report. All efforts to obtain supporting information--even the name of the doctor/provider  have been unsuccessful, and we were told by the Vice President that we could either pay half the bill, or they will let it stay on our credit report.
Patients are seated comfortably in the MedX cervical or lumbar machine. In the cervical machine, the muscles in the torso are restrained so that only the muscles in the neck are targeted. Because the cervical muscles in the neck must continually support the weight of the head, weak muscles can lead to headache, neck pain and poor posture mechanics. In the lumbar machine, the muscles in the abdomen, hips and legs are restrained so that only the muscles in the low back are targeted. Weak lumbar muscles can be responsible for back pain, leg pain, stiffness and many other debilitating complaints. The exercises performed in the Med-X cervical and lumbar machines are slow, gentle, take just a few minutes to complete and are computer monitored.

The core muscles, which include the muscles of the back and abdomen, support the spine and hips. When these muscles atrophy or suffer an injury, back pain often results. Strong core muscles protect the spine and hips, relieving and preventing pain. MedX designs and manufactures the only FDA-registered Medical Strengthening Device in America, and it is designed specifically to strengthen the lumbar and cervical regions.
This is Emily Deal, office manager of Mobile Medical Solutions/Family Wellness Associates, office of Susan Thompson APRN-CNP and Dr. Richard Zielinski. Just wanted to let you all in on a new program that we have been using to safely exchange patient data called MEDX. It is encrypted and HIPAA-Compliant, super fast and easy to use. You can send pics, docs, videos, messages, group messages, etc. For those businesses that use PACS, they have a great program on there for you, which would mean no more mailing CDs of X-rays to those whom use MEDX. We have been working with Michael Parikh who has been great, and has shown us how easy and accessible it is to use from our iPhones.

Most importantly, MEDEX will allow the employer maximum control with our customized programs.
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.

But in a year when the left is energized in opposition to Trump, particularly by his policies toward minority groups and immigrants, and as the GOP tries to hang on to their majorities in Congress and state houses around the country, state party officials say they do not need racist fringe candidates running for office. None of these candidates is expected to win in the general election this fall, but they are going to give liberals on the hunt for examples of simmering neo-Nazi and neo-Confederate rhetoric at least five places to point.
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.).

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 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.

The Universities of Florida and San Diego as well as various orthopedic clinics around the world have published compelling research showing 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 40 published articles in peer-reviewed journals, the proof lies in both this research and the testimonials of thousands of people around the world who have found relief from their pain through MedX™ rehabilitation.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, it takes thousands more signatures to get ballot-approved as an independent candidate than as a Republican; Jones therefore ran in 2016 as a Republican, but the party disavowed him and found technical reasons for removing him from past ballots.[4] Again according to the Sun-Times, Jones took countermeasures in 2017 and 2018 for which the party was unprepared, and so his appear on their ballot despite official Republican disapproval.[4]
