Get Rid of Your Back Pain for Good

Exercise-Based Strengthening for Back Pain

Is back pain stopping you from doing the things you love?

Have you tried everything but it keeps coming back?

Would you like to move freely without relying on painkillers?

Research shows that if you have back pain for 6 weeks or more, the muscles of the low back and core become weak and deconditioned. This can lead to more pain and leave you vulnerable to injury.

Until these muscles are strengthened, you end up in a cycle of pain leading to less activity, which leads to weakness of the muscles through lack of use, which then leads to more pain and so the cycle continues.

Unfortunately – with traditional exercise – it is virtually impossible to strengthen the muscles of the low back. Often the stronger muscles of the legs and buttocks take over, meaning the strong muscles get stronger and the weak ones stay the same.

The only way to effectively strengthen your back in order to reduce pain and protect you long-term is by isolating and strengthening the lumbar muscles.

What is the MedX Difference?

With MedX, our therapists precisely measure your strength, range of motion and endurance to uncover the sources of muscle weakness and injury. Then we design a customized treatment program to isolate and strengthen muscles in the back or neck. It’s worth noting that ReQuest Physical Therapy is the only practices in this area that has all four of these state-of-the-art machines.

MedX is recognized as the Gold standard for treating and reducing back pain through specific spinal strengthening, over the last 15 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. The 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.
