MedX equipment are significant tools specifically designed to help strengthen your the muscles of the back and neck responsible for stabilizing the joints. MedX is one of the tools Wright Physical Therapy uses to answer the question, why does my back or neck pain return? Research demonstrates it often is associated with weak back or neck muscles deep in the spine. MedX skillfully applied with other therapeutic techniques is an excellent and meaningful solution for those with back or neck pain.

His website says he’s “concerned about the future of our country,” which, for a normal politician, might sound like a generic call for more spending on their generic priorities. But it takes on a very different connotation when you click over to the section called “Holocaust?,” a page that features a variety of conspiracy theories and racist ideas shared by the Holocaust-denier world.
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.
Illinois Republicans, meanwhile, seemed to struggle with how to respond to Jones: in July, Governor Bruce Rauner denounced his views but refused to suggest that anyone should vote for Lipinski instead. The National Republican Congressional Committee has said it won’t endorse Jones, and the state Republican party issued a statement saying that both the party and the country have “no place for Nazis like Arthur Jones,” adding, “We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office, including the 3rd Congressional District.”
In 2016 he was a supporter of Donald Trump for president. Jones said in an interview then, "I agree with a lot of what Mr. Trump has to say [...] He's his own man. I like the fact that doesn't have to go hat in hand to Jewish billionaires to get money".[22] In February 2018, Jones nonetheless said President Trump "surrounded himself with hordes of Jews", and regrets his 2016 vote.[10] At a neo-Nazi meeting in Kentucky, Jones said that Trump "surrounded himself with hordes of Jews including a Jew in his own family, that punk named Jared Kushner", and moved on to say "I'm sorry I voted for the son of a bitch, pardon my English" and that Trump was "nothing but a puppet … this Jew-loving fool", all of which was also captured on video.[11]
Photobiomodulation exposes the cells of the body to light, and particular wavelengths of light are able to produce photo-chemical reactions, stimulating the cells of the body into producing more energy. This increase in energy levels allows the cells to work more effectively in properly balancing the cellular components, so that the cells can function properly. The laser light functions as biochemical energy and improves the efficiency of the body’s healing capabilities. The result is that the body is able to heal itself in a shorter period of time. 
Some of the unique healing effects of MedX PBM include: increased cell metabolism, improved localized blood circulation, development of collagen and muscle tissue, relief from acute and chronic pain, reduced localized inflammation and edema, stimulation of the immune system and stimulation of nerve function.
Greg was raised in Price, UT. He completed his undergraduate degree in human biology at BYU-Provo in 1997 and his doctor of physical therapy degree (DPT) from Creighton University in Omaha, NE in 2000. Greg and his wife, Viki, are the proud parents of 7 children and finds that with what free time they have is spent exploring Eastern Idaho together as a family.

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.


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]

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.
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.

Jones's ideas tried to move the public's notion of bodybuilding and strength-training exercise away from the Arnold Schwarzenegger school of training, which involved hours in the gym using free weights, to high intensity training. This involves short, single sets, with each set taken to the point of complete muscular failure with a frequency of once or at most twice a week with the intention to maximize muscular hypertrophy and strength increases. Famous individuals who trained under Jones's supervision include Casey Viator (who participated in the Colorado Experiment), Eddie Robinson (who worked with and participated in and trained under Jones's Nautilus leverage line, which is now Hammer Strength,[citation needed] and IFBB professional body builders [[Mike and Ray Mentzer ( both won the Mr. America IFBB and AAU respectively ),Sergio Oliva ( winner of every major bodybuilding contest and was also the only individual to win the Mr. Olympia over Arnold Schwartzenegger who placed 2cnd ) and Boyer Coe ( Mr. America, Mr.International,Mr.Universe etc.)
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.

For his trouble, Hanson received an in-person visit from Jones: when he announced his candidacy at an event at his home, Jones showed up to yell from the sidewalk, then briefly made an incursion into Hanson’s backyard. Hanson knew Jones was coming thanks to members of the press who gave him a heads up. “They know I have kids and they didn’t know if he’d be bringing people with him,” he said.
MedX is a tool that isolates movement and provides a safe and effective environment in which to apply basic principles of progression and overload to combat and reverse the deconditioning effects of chronic low back pain. Providing a secure isolated environment reduces patients anxiety and apprehension during the movement and musculature re-activation phase of a rehabilitation program. This type of environment helps the patient develop and re-establish confidence in using their low back musculature. The human body adapts to disuse. If an area of the body is painful the neuromuscular system will learn new patterns of contraction to produce movement, thus alienating the injured muscle. This injured muscle then further atrophies and weakens, predisposing an individual to greater risk and severity or re-injury. Effective rehabilitation must prevent alienation, or re-educate the neuromuscular system properly.
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.

Jones received criticism when an article came out in the Oak Lawn Patch on February 29, 2012, in which he commented that "the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews. It's the blackest lie in history."[4][5] According to the same article, Jones participated in the Nazis' 1978 march in Chicago and "neither denies nor repudiates" having had been affiliated with the neo-Nazi Party, although he said he votes Republican "90 percent of the time."[4]
