History Of Medx System

After years of development and independent research by the University of Florida, the MedX system was launched.

It has become and important tool to the healthcare community to be able to evaluate the functionality of the affected lumbar and cervical spine as well as provide rehabilitative exercises.

Medx Rehabilitation

Lumbar Extension: As we know, a strong health spine that is free of interference, prevents many musculoskeletal spine problems. Research shows us that most patients with many forms of spinal pain are significantly deconditioned. Deconditioning is a weakness of the spinal musculature, that is essential to proper spinal function. This weakness which can occur very quickly may contribute to, pinched nerves (subluxation). DJD (degenerative disc disease), herniated discs and other acute and chronic pain syndromes.

Following a disc disorder of any kind, spinal deconditioning takes place as well, we know that what is important to actively recondition these muscular structures through isolated strengthening exercise, which the MedX system provides. This modality is an essential part of the DISC-covery® system.

Cervical Extension

Think about it…Your neck has to provide constant support to your cervical muscles and the weight of your head. It is no wonder that one of the most common complaints we see are patients looking for relief from neck pain and headaches. Most people present with a weakness or deconditioning of these cervical muscles, which leads to these complaints.

These conditions may result from a traumatic injury, poor posture or constant stress, as well as, occupational or job related, will stress affected spinal discs. With the MedX Cervical Extension machine, we can provide a solution for those disc related disorders by strengthening deconditioning muscles of the neck to help insure a full and lasting recovery.
