Backs in Shape Program
MEDX CERVICAL & LUMBAR REHABILITATION
Tallahassee Chiropractor Dr. Joseph Miller utilizes MedX spinal rehabilitaion equipment at Tallahassee Spine Center to treat low back pain and neck pain. MedX rehabilitation equipment was designed by Arthur Jones founder of Nautilus equipment. Medx medical equipment provides functional testing and spinal rehab therapy. Testing provides functional assessment about your back and neck that can be compared with normative data complied by medx. The information collected from testing allows Dr. Miller to customize a medx based strengthening program to target the weak and injured areas of your spine.
Medx machines are adjusted to each patient during the first therapy session. Gradually the back and neck muscles are strengthened leading to long term success for the patient. The patient is retested during the strengthening program at regular intervals to make sure progress is being made. Because of the precision, medx training can be more effective than conventional strength training.
Over the years, the Universities of Florida and San Diego, along with various orthopedic clinics around the world, have published some of the most compelling research to date. This research shows that specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines help people get better, even after multiple failed attempts at other forms of treatment. With more than 40 published articles in peer-reviewed journals, the proof lies in both the research and the testimonials of thousands of people around the world. Research can be found in the following prestigious journals:
• Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
• Physical Therapy
• Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise
• American Journal of Sports Medicine
• Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine
