Comprehensive rehabilitation with measurable results
MedX is a comprehensive rehabilitation program that incorporates the sports medicine approach to the treatment of chronic neck and back pain. A key component is the patented MedX equipment, developed by the founder of the Nautilus exercise equipment. MedX machines are specially designed to provide the most effective means of isolating, safely testing, and directly strengthening the muscles in the low back and neck.
The program’s primary goals are to improve range of motion, improve muscle strength, decrease pain, and return the patient to normal function. The entire program generally takes 15-20 minutes, twice a week for 8 weeks.
MedX Cervical and Lumbar Extension machines are proven to assist patients recovering from chronic back pain and neck pain, even after multiple failed attempts at other forms of therapy, including spine surgery. Other conditions often successfully treated by MedX include, whiplash injuries, degenerative disc disease and bulging discs.
MedX has over 40 published articles in peer-reviewed medical journals including the University of Florida and University of California San Diego which published research proving the efficacy of specific spine strengthening.
MedX is considered the gold standard for specific spine strengthening and rehabilitation and Pacific Coast Injury Group is proud to offer it through one of our chiropractic member offices.
