Synergy Physiotherapy and Sports – The MedX approach to Back and Neck Pain Management

What is MedX?

MedX is advanced computerised testing of spine strength and is a safe , supervised and result driven exercise programme. MedX is patented and offers the unique technology to test and quantify spine muscle strength which no other assessment or intervention does. MedX devices feature elaborate and patented restraint mechanisms to isolate, target and accurately measure the strength of the spine.

Testing procedures and rehabilitation protocols have been researched and developed over 20 years, primarily at the Centre for Health and Human Performance, Exercise Science and Colleges of Medicine, University of Florida, and in addition at the University of California School of Medicine, San Diego.

Integrated into every MedX product are decades of experience and millions of dollars of independent, university-based research. In terms of biomechanical design and mechanical functionality, MedX is the most technologically advanced spinal rehabilitation equipment available. MedX resistance exercises allow the user to choose the resistance in 2 pound increments which is a very safe way for resistance training.

What does research say about MedX?

Clinical studies have shown that MedX-based testing and exercise therapy relieves back and neck pain, restores function and reduces the need for spinal surgeries.

With more than 50 published articles in peer-reviewed journals, the proof lies in the research and the thousands of testimonials from people around the world.

No other equipment in the world can provide the measurable results in strength, flexibility and muscular endurance, rehabilitation, injury prevention and overall physical condition.
