Medical strengthening therapy

by Super User

Our fully equipped rehabilitation gym contains state of the art MedX strength and endurance machines. These machines provide smooth and friction free training and can be used for general fitness, sports and rehabilitation programs. They can help to make sure that you never do a wrong movement or harm yourself.

They can help to –

  • Provide individualized rehabilitation programs
  • Reduce pain and improve mobility
  • Long term tools to stay injury-free or prevent an injury from occurring
  • Weakening of the muscle supporting the spine is thought to be a significant contributing factor in back pain. This can lead to herniated discs, facet syndrome and degenerative joint disease.
  • MedX Equipment provides an effective and clinically proven method of managing chronic lower back and neck pain. Developed in the United States and widely used in Germany and Switzerland MedX has quickly established itself as the industry Gold Standard, often succeeding where other interventions have failed. A strong spine is a healthy spine, minimising spinal compression and alleviating pain symptoms.
  • MedX allows for gradual, targeted loading of muscles. The unique design of the machines allows for isolation of specific muscles groups with equal loading in both positive (muscle contraction) and negative (muscle lengthening) phases. This is essential for muscular balance.
  • MedX produces excellent results as there is no learning curve or co-ordination requirements with the movements so effective training begins immediately. Effort exerted translates directly to strength gains. Risk of injury is minimal as the ability to perform movements incorrectly is almost impossible

MedX program goals:

  • Decreased pain levels
  • Restored spinal function
  • Improved quality of life and independence
  • Decrease the need for ongoing spinal care
