The Technology Behind Your Treatment

MedX Medical Lumbar Rehab Machine

How It Works

Research has shown that for people who suffer from chronic lower back pain, the cause is often due to atrophy of the small stabilizer muscles such as the multifidus. While Larger muscle groups like the hamstrings, glutes and the QL provide support and strength to your lower back, they don’t stabilize the spinal column to the same degree compared to smaller muscle groups.

How Can It Help?

The MedX Medical Lumbar Rehab Machine isolates your lumbar extensor muscles by tightly holding your legs and pelvis in a position that eliminates them from helping your back muscles, forcing your back extensor muscles to do all the work. By isolating them in this manner, they quickly regain lost strength, and most people, get relief of their low back pain.

Why It Works

Chronic lower back pain can be caused by decreased muscle strength. To help relieve lower back pain, the MEDX was designed to rehabilitate and strengthen the lower back by isolating and training your lower back muscles, helping to stabilize and provide stronger support to your lower back.

DRX 9000 Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Machine

Research has shown that for people who suffer from chronic lower back pain, the cause is often due to atrophy of the small stabilizer muscles such as the multifidus. While Larger muscle groups like the hamstrings, glutes and the QL provide support and strength to your lower back, they don’t stabilize the spinal column to the same degree compared to smaller muscle groups.

How It Works

Do you suffer from spinal disk injuries such as disk bulge, herniated disk, a tear in the annulus fibrosis, or degenerative disk disease? All of these conditions cause severe pain. If you have tried other therapies and are still suffering, the DRX 9000 was developed to help patients achieve pain relief by utilizing non-surgical decompression.

How Can It Help?

DRX 9000 Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Machine creates a negative pressure inside your disc and sucks nutrients back in, simulating healing!

Why It Works

By naturally creating a negative pressure inside the disc, the fluids and nutrients get sucked into the disc and the disc is able to begin to heal. Some of the jelly also returns back into the disc, relieving pressure on the pinched nerve, and the pain is relieved. This process takes away your pain and symptoms by stimulating healing, instead of masking it with drugs or cutting parts out with surgery.

MCU Multi-Cervical Unit

How It Works

The MCU uses the latest technology to gently and effectively help patients to rebuild strength, balance and range of motion, providing significant pain relief.  With the MCU, we will accurately measure where your neck muscles are weakest, strengthen them and then re-assess to ensure that your neck muscles have returned to their optimum levels based on the average for your age and sex. The MCU can be used to provide pain relief related to weak neck muscles, whiplash injuries etc. If you suffer from chronic neck pain, whiplash injuries, etc we can help you.

How Can It Help?

Multi-Cervical Unit is effective because it tests your neck muscles in all directions with computerized testing equipment. This innovative equipment can tell what direction your neck muscles are at their weakest or if they’re even weak at all.

Why It Works

By knowing what direction your muscles are weakest, then you know what exercises to perform. Other machines don’t have the kind of pinpoint accuracy MCU displays therefore you may be strengthening muscles that are already strong, increasing the imbalances and increasing your pain.

 

 

PrimusRS

How It Works

The PrimusRS is Specifically designed for evaluating, rehabbing, and tracking progress using Isotonic, Isometric, Isokinetic, and CPM resistance modes, this innovative machine is perfect for multi-joint testing, orthopaedic rehab, neuromuscular re-education, and even advanced musculoskeletal athletic training.

How Can It Help?

The PrimusRS is used to establish an evidence-supported pre-rehab reference point. After which, we will develop a safe and objective rehabilitation program while tracking your rehabilitation progress while objectively assessing your progress and development during the process.

Why It Works

By combining the rehabilitation systems of four different machines, the PrimusRS provides comprehensive treatments to suit the unique needs of every patient. From a functional standpoint, its seamless resistance modes, adjustable height, and full set of functional attachments, allows for the replication of virtually any daily task or activity.
