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).
“There is such a danger in too much assumption in politics,” he told Splinter. “Would you not have assumed that either major political party would not knowingly allow a guy like Art Jones to run unopposed on a ballot? If you threw $10,000 and a garbage can in a primary you’d beat him. But the Republican party just didn’t and nearly 21,000 people unknowingly voted for a bad guy. They let those people down.”

Patients are able to test and train on this equipment with the joints isolated and surrounding musculature in biomechanically correct positions and at speeds that replicate function. This technologically advanced system also permits the earliest possible post-operative intervention to decrease joint effusion (increase fluid), increase range of motion, and develop strength.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Biomechanically precise trains the flexion and extension muscles of the neck for improved range of motion, stretches and strengthens the cervical spinal muscles for decompression of the upper spine while promoting increased omni-directional strength and flexibility of entire neck. Based on the superior biotechnology of the MedX Medical Neck Extension machine used in spinal rehabilitation facilities around the world.
