Reduce low and upper back pain, increase back strength, and improve posture with our state-of-the-art MedX Back machine.

MedX Back

The MedX Back strengthening program uses state‐of‐the‐art equipment that tests your low back strength to identify weaknesses in the deep core and postural muscles that contribute to pain.

The test takes approximately 15 minutes from start to finish. This appointment includes: stretching and warming up prior to the test, explanation of your results, and recovery after the test.

Medx Back Exercise appointments will occur for 8-10 sessions post-test. These appointments are for strengthening after you have completed the initial test and subsequent check-in tests. The actual exercises take approximately 2-3 minutes depending on your protocol, your experience in the machine, and your strength and stability weaknesses. Included with the exercises is stretching and warming-up prior to the exercises and recovery after.

The equipment is then used, over the course of several weeks, to isolate these spine muscles to strengthen them safely, eliminating weakness as a factor in back and neck pain. Periodic re‐testing measures strength increases and progress towards strength goals.

Additional Information

MedX Back Details

Weakness of the core and back is a major contributor to pain in the back and neck. When these muscles are weak, they fatigue easily doing routine daily activities. This causes aching, tension and tightness in the back, the hips, and down the legs. Radiating pain and numbness or tingling in the legs can also be a result of back weakness.

The MedX machines are designed to identify specific spinal muscle weakness and strengthen them in a safe and comfortable manner. As strength progressively increases, a reduction in back pain, as well as improved motion, is the result. The speed with which you see results depends on the magnitude of your initial strength deficit. Results can typically be seen with six to eight strength training sessions that take only 2-3 minutes each.

 

How It Works

How it Works

MedX Back works by isolating specific back muscles. The test will be executed by a trained professional. The machine’s settings will be adjusted to fit you. Your strength will then be tested at several angles in your range of motion. After the test your test results will be discussed and will include: range of motion, appropriate strength curve, and comparison to the average strength of 4000 test subjects of variable age and gender who experienced no back pain. This will determine the amount of strength you are missing and the plan for exercises.

On your first exercise session after a test your provider will calculate the appropriate start weight for you. Your personalized machine settings will be saved and ready for you. After set-up and adjustment of the machine you will complete the exercises according to your protocol. The following Medx Back Exercise appointments will be similar, but each time the resistance will be increased (unless contraindicated).
