The purchaser of a $8000 MedX low back exercise machine was a baggage handler at Northwest Airlines. This was related to me by the man who delivered the equipment.

I first used the MedX lumbar exercise machine in a doctor’s office. At the time I had been suffering for two years with constant back pain.

When attempting to exercise the lower back typically the more powerful muscles of the hips do much of the work while the lumbar muscles move through a limited range of motion and contribute little to the movement.

MedX put 90 million dollars into research to develop safe effective exercise equipment for the lower back. This equipment is often used for rehab. I first used this equipment in a doctor's office.

The equipment and the protocol we use has contributed to our success working with those who have back problems.
