MedX facility in Thousand Oaks CA
Traditional chiropractic care in Thousand Oaks CA focuses on the restoration of spinal ailment using manual manipulation as its primary procedure. A growing volume of research over the last two decades has demonstrated the efficacy and validity of chiropractic care as a viable, cost-effective treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Omega Rehab & Sport has developed our own unique methodology of treatment we call ChiroActive. ChiroActive which emphasizes the clients' active involvement through therapeutic exercise, self-care strategies, and improved awareness of healthy behaviors gained through education.
MedX Medical Equipment - Lumbar Extension
- Provides resistance over a full range of isolated lumbar motion, or over a selected limited range
- Isometric testing may occur every 3° within a patient’s range of motion
- MedX software plots a strength curve to compare the patient’s strength and range of motion to established norms
- Stored energy can be assessed and factored out at each angle tested
Strengthening is the Solution
Medical research shows that the majority of patients with chronic spinal pain are significantly “deconditioned”. Weakness of the musculature of the spine can lead to many conditions such as herniated discs, facet syndrome, and degenerative joint disease. A strong spine provides a strong foundation that allows for healthy spaces between the vertebrae, which helps prevent spinal compression.
To provide lasting relief from chronic neck and back pain, the spinal structures and supporting tissue must be actively reconditioned through isolated strengthening exercise. Until MedX developed the Lumbar Extension restraint system, there was never an effective way to isolate and strengthen the muscles of the spine.
The goals of the MedX program include:
- Decrease pain levels
- Restore spinal function
- Improve the quality of life and independence
- Decrease the need for on-going spinal care
The Medx Lumbar Extension Machine can provide resistance over a full range of isolated lumbar motion (72 degrees), or over a selected limited range. In exercise mode, a compound weight stack provides from 10 to 400-foot pounds in increments of one-foot pound.
Isometric testing may occur every 3 degrees within the patient’s range of motion. During the test, the software plots a strength curve that allows a comparison of the patient’s strength and range of motion to age and gender matched norms. Its also has the ability to detect a lack of reasonable effort by the patient. Various reports can be generated for individual patients and selected patients groups or categories for outcome tracking purpose.
Accuracy and reliability of testing is addressed by the machine’s ability to factor out the torque of both torso and mass and stored energy. Torso mass is eliminated via an adjustable counterweight. Stored energy (tissue compression and/or joint elasticity) can be assessed and factored out each angle tested.
MedX Medical Equipment - Cervical Extension
- Proven solution for patients who suffer from neck pain and/or headaches
- Highly reliable for cervical extension strength testing and dynamic variable resistance training
- Isometric testing can be performed every 3° through the normal 126° range of motion
The MedX Cervical Extension Machine is an effective, proven solution for patients who suffer from neck pain and/or headaches. Because the cervical muscles must continually support the weight of the head, headache and neck pain are common clinical complaints. These ailments often originate as a result of muscular weakness or traumatic injury.
The Medx Cervical Extension Machine is highly reliable and specific for the quantification of isometric cervical extension strength testing and dynamic variable resistance training. Isometric testing can be performed every three degrees through the normal 126 degree range of motion. Validity is achieved by effectively stabilizing the torso to achieve cervical extension muscle isolation. Counterbalancing the mass of the head is performed to ensure accurate torque assessment by eliminating the effects of gravity.
This machine features dual-weight stacks with a stroke length of only 1.5 inches during a full-range dynamic contraction. This short stroke length reduces internal friction and lowers the risk of impact forces. Weight can be selected at 3 inch pound increments from 30 to 900 inch pounds of resistance.
