PCSM offers both Medical Treatment and basic Personal Training with MedX Rehabilitation. Both Drs. Maryann and Michael Sheps are health care professionals who have been certified in musculoskeletal evaluation and rehabilitation in both lumbar spine (low back) and cervical spine (neck) through MedX at The University of Florida and The University of San Diego Medical School for Orthopedic Medicine. With these certifications, patients receive more than just a personal trainer: they receive extended knowledge of physiology and biomechanics. This translates into the ability to safely rehab a patient’s condition while taking them through a full course of exercises.

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.

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. They provide therapy for aging concerns, disease processes and disabilities. MedX therapists also provide pre and post surgery therapy to help you prepare and return to life after surgery.
Incorporated into every MedX product are decades of experience and millions of dollars of independent, university-based research. MedX is the most technologically advanced fitness, sports and medical/rehabilitation equipment available. MedX products achieve training efficiency through resistance curves matched to tested and proven strength profiles. They operate at a very low level of friction and offer a choice of resistance in 2-pound increments, ensuring a weight that is just right - not too heavy and not too light - for rapid and steady progress.

MedX™ treats and reduces chronic back pain and dysfunction through specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX™ Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines. Pressure on the spinal column causes pressure on nerve roots, which in turn, causes pain. MedX™ focuses on increasing strength, decreasing pressure on spine and nerve roots, ultimately decreasing pain. It also reforms inflexible scar tissue into a more normal functional scar. In simple terms:
A course of MedX treatment includes two types of testing. The first test is called the “Static Test” and the second is the “Dynamic Test”. The Static Test requires pushing backwards at seven different angles. The Dynamic Test requires pushing a specified weight repeatedly through a range of motion. The MedX machine itself will neither make you move where you hurt nor will it make you push harder than you feel comfortable. You will have total control of your effort. In other words, you move the machine – the machine does not move you.
If you live with pain on a daily basis, have a recurrent neck or back problem that won’t go away, or have tried other therapies without achieving the results you need, Physicians’ Diagnostics & Rehabilitation Clinics can help. PDR Clinics’ neck and back pain treatment programs have provided relief to thousands of patients throughout the Twin Cities. The combination of our physical medicine & rehabilitation physicians, advanced practice physical & occupational therapists, and clinically-based protocols utilizing MedX therapy equipment and lifestyle-modification programs, yield very high recovery rates without the use of invasive therapies or surgery.
Ryan was raised in the small town of Burley, ID. Having grown up in a family construction company, his father instilled in him the importance of a hard work ethic. This work ethic was applied not only to school but also sports. He had the privilege of being part of a state basketball champion team but unfortunately, he became sidelined due to a knee injury. From that injury he was introduced to physical therapy and got his first experience as to how beneficial conservative treatment can be. Since then he has furthered his passion for physical health and fitness by staying active in recreational weight lifting and competed in several bodybuilding competitions throughout the northwest. Since then he attended the College of Southern Idaho and Idaho State University where he obtained his undergraduate degree in Physical Education and completed his Doctorate of Physical (DPT) at the University of Jamestown in North Dakota in 2018. While attending the University of Jamestown he had the great opportunity to be a student physical therapist at two Rehab Authority clinics before he graduated. He is an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association and is excited to further is knowledge from the neck and back experts here at Rehab Authority. When Ryan isn’t in the clinic cracking jokes and treating patients you can find him spending time at the local gym or exploring the amazing outdoors that Idaho has to offer.
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.

Nobody else ran as a Republican in the primary because politics is a results-oriented business and the chance of a Republican winning are slim. The boundaries were drawn by Democrats to elect a Democrat. Rep. Dan Lipinski, the incumbent, will face Marie Newman in the Democratic primary, and one of those two will win on Nov. 6. There are other Democratic strongholds in the Chicago area featuring a lone Republican. It can be a Maytag repairman-like assignment.

MedX reduces the friction of traditional equipment from 30% to 0 and 5% friction. This makes a big difference in the ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ phases of resistance–when you push the weight up, and when you let it back down again.  If you had 100 pounds on a machine with 2% friction, you would be pushing 102 pounds during the positive phase of the movement and resisting 98 pounds during the negative phase. This is a four pound difference between pushing the weight up and letting it down. On traditional equipment, with 30% friction, that 100 pounds turns into you having to push 130 pounds during the positive phase and resisting 70 pounds during the negative phase, for a total difference of 60 pounds. That gives your muscles plenty of time to recover on the downswing, which severely impacts your ability to properly stimulate your muscles.

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.
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%.

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.)
Jones’s ideas aren’t resonating widely with suburban Chicago voters. He is expected to lose. In 2016, the district went to the Democratic incumbent Dan Lipinski, who won 100 percent of the vote because no Republican bothered to run against him. Jones only got on the ballot because, as the Atlantic detailed earlier this year, he went door to door gathering signatures (and not mentioning his views on race or Jewish people). By December, he was the only Republican to file to run.

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.
“There were several individuals interested in running as independent candidates, but unfortunately they made the decision not to run after considering the incredibly large petition signature requirements in a relatively small geographic area and the amount of resources that would be required to mount a campaign in a district heavily favored for Democrats,” Illinois Republican Party spokesman Aaron DeGroot said.
