What is Medx?
The Medx equipment is a comprehensive rehabilitation program that utilizes the progressive overload principle for muscle strengthening. The machines are specifically designed to isolate and strengthen the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine. They may also be used to safely test a patient’s isometric strength to compare to normative models based on gender and age along with showing the patient’s individual progression in strength from beginning to end. The primary goals are increased range of motion, increased strength and decreased pain/muscle aches to overall improve quality/function of life. The Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic Back Care Center has all 4 clinical Medx machines including: cervical extension, cervical rotation, lumbar extension and torso rotation allowing us to treat a vast number of spinal conditions.
